The Giro d'Italia's arrival in #Dublin will be celebrated with a host of special events in the run up to the arrival of over 200 of the world's top professional cyclists. Such is the prestige of the Giro that Bradley Wiggans, 2012 Tour de France champion, has focused on the Giro d'Italia 2013 rather than defending his Tour de France title. There is a strong Irish connection to the Giro with Stephen Roche winning the famous 'Maglia Rosa', in 1987. www.dublinsightseeing.ie #LoveDublin

The Anthems from Ireland vs England at Croke Park
A momentous day for Ireland, and for sport in Ireland. During the 6 nations in 2007, Ireland and England played in Croke Park. This was the first time an English team had ever played in Croke Park due to the fractured relationship between the two countries in the past. The scenes in this video provide an insight into the significance of this event for both nations and the sporting reconciliation that occurred on this day.

Lansdowne Road to be renamed Aviva Stadium
The Old Lady Creaks No More- Lansdowne Rd was the oldest rugby stadium in the world. The creation of Lansdowne Rd Stadium was the vision of Henry William Dunlop, a young athlete who organised the first All Ireland Athletics Championships. His vision was to create a purpose built sporting venue and this he did at Lansdowne. A stadium full of wonderful memories for both rugby and soccer fans, many will say the redeveloped Lansdowne Rd does not, and may not ever have the same charm as the old lady.

Under Construction
This annual run is the largest event of its kind in the world, attracting upwards of 30,000 participants. It's less a competition than an opportunity to raise money for charity, and the vast majority of people walk rather than run the 10km (six-mile) course.

Despite his huge reputation as a legendary player, "Heffo" will probably be best remembered as one of the first true managers in the game. He led Dublin to All-Ireland titles in 1974, 1976 and 1983 and is regarded as one of the greatest managers of all time. Here, he takes in the moment at the final whistle of Dublin's semi-final win that year against Cork in 1983.
