Player whose death Irish amateur club falsely reported will not press charges

Pakistan played their first match in over three years
Fernando Lafuente is alive and well after being falsely reported dead.

A footballer whose death was falsely reported by his former club, Ballybrack FC, will not press charges and has claimed the amateur side from Dublin did it in order to get a game postponed.

Ballybrack, who play in the Leinster Senior League (LSL) in Ireland, announced that Fernando Lafuente had died on Thursday in a car wreck. Their game against Arklow Town on Saturday was postponed and a minute's silence was held by other teams before their fixtures.

Lafuente, 29, played for Ballybrack...

Irish club Bohemians blocked from using Bob Marley's image on away kit

Bob Marley's image will no longer be appearing on the shirts of Irish club Bohemians
Bob Marley's image will no longer appear on the shirts of Irish club Bohemians.

League of Ireland side Bohemians have been forced to drop their new away kit, which was set to feature a giant image of Bob Marley on the front.

In a somewhat tenuous link, Bohs wanted to include Marley's picture to celebrate the musical heritage of their Dalymount stadium, with The Wailers having played one gig there back in the 1980s.

However, the club have since been contacted by representatives of the agency that handles Marley's image, who informed them that they do not have the rights to use...

Ireland club Bohemians' 2019 away kit steeped in roots, rock, reggae

League of Ireland club Bohemians have released an interesting new away kit for 2019 that is steeped long in roots, rock and reggae.

The Dublin-based side's new Rasta-tastic shirt features a large graphic of Bob Marley on the front, complete with red, gold and green trim.

The fairly tenuous explanation from Bohs is that Marley played one concert at their Dalymount ground during the 1980s -- thus, the jersey is designed to pay homage to the stadium's "special place in the hearts of both football...

Cork City winger scores from own box

Cork City mustered a 3-1 away victory over St. Patrick's on Friday night to keep themselves within two points of the top of the League of Ireland Premier Division.

With their guests already 2-1 up and injury time dwindling away, St. Patrick's sent goalkeeper Tyson Farago up for a corner in desperate search of a late, late equaliser.

Unfortunately, the set piece came to nothing -- well, nothing other than an 80-yard mega goal for Cork winger Kieran Sadlier.

Outrageous strike, but the best part is...

Game on! Match to go ahead despite Storm Ophelia wreaking havoc

Cork City's Turners Cross Stadium suffered severe damage due to Storm Ophelia
Cork City need just one point from the match against Derry to win the Irish title.

Amid all the damage and debris, Cork City felt the full brunt of Storm Ophelia as high winds swept across the Republic of Ireland on Monday.

Thankfully, nobody was injured as Cork's stadium was ravaged by the storm overnight, causing the Derrynane Stand to collapse.

Naturally, this left Cork's Irish Premier League tie against Derry City, scheduled to kick off at 7:20 p.m. on Tuesday night, hanging in the balance.

However, despite the stadium roof lying crumpled atop the terraces, the club confirmed...
