Donald Trump hints at violence against Hillary Clinton, Mayo and Dublin must do it all again, and Terry Wogan to receive posthumous honour
After a busy weekend of news and sport, here's what you need to get caught up this Monday morning.
Republican US presidential candidate Donald Trump is facing criticism after being accused of hinting at the assassination of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for a second time.
Speaking at a rally in Miami, Mr Trump called for Mrs Clinton's bodyguards to give up their guns and "see what happens to her".
He told supporters his rival wanted to "destroy the second amendment" - referring to the right to own guns.
"I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons, they should disarm," he told the crowd. "I think they should disarm immediately.
"Take their guns away, she doesn't want guns. Let's see what happens to her. It would be very dangerous," he added.
Ireland's boxers had a tough time at the Olympics in Rio 2016, and when they turned to their corner for help, the familiar face of Billy Walsh was nowhere to be seen.
The Wexford man had lead Ireland's High Performance Unit and their boxing team to incredible success, with Katie Taylor, Michael Conland and Paddy Barnes all flourishing under his guidance.
Speaking to Off the Ball, Walsh stated that it was hard not to be affected by what happened to the team and to the Irish boxers in particular that he had spent so many years working with.
"Michael Conlan was hijacked," said Walsh. "It was very sad because I sat with Michael after London, sat down with him and said: 'Micheal you're 20 years of age, you're going to be 24 at the end of this year  and you've plenty of time to go professional. We're going to broker a deal, we're hopeful the Sports Council will support us and the IABA will support us and I really feel you could win a gold medal in Rio.'
"He was on track to be that gold medalist, and for it to be taken from him in that manner was very, very cruel and very, very sad because he put four years of his life on hold to make that happen."
Sinn Féin has risen four points and unaligned independents have also grown in the public's affections in the latest Behaviour & Attitudes opinion poll for The Sunday Times.
Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil are down two points each, but Micheál Martin's party retains its strong five-point lead over Fine Gael and is the most popular party, six months after the general election.
The Sinn Féin rise comes near the end of a long parliamentary recess and following a vigorous public debate about the EU's ruling that Apple owed the Irish state €13 billion in back taxes.
Mayo have secured a second chance to contest the Sam Maguire on October 1st, but the honours could have been there's had two own goals been erased from today's script.
Colm Boyle and Kevin McLoughlin were the unfortunate two to direct the ball into their own net, thus gifting Dublin with a six point cushion which sustained them throughout the game.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the final whistle, however, Mayo's Aidan O'Shea insisted that his side were undaunted by the impact of those moments.
"We know there's gonna be crazy things happening in All-Ireland finals, we know that better than anybody. We felt comfortable in the game and the goals just came at a bad time for us. The defence was excellent all day bar the two goals."
The late BBC broadcaster Terry Wogan will be honoured for his contribution to the Irish diaspora as he has been named as a recipient for the Presidential Distinguished Service Award for the Irish Abroad for 2016.
Mr Wogan passed away in January at the age of 77 after a short illness, and was universally known having spent the majority of his career working with the BBC.
Born in Limerick in 1938, the broadcaster became a household name through his work on television presenting shows such as Blankety Blank, Children in Need and the Eurovision Song Contest, as well as his hugely popular BBC Radio 2 show Wake up to Wogan.
In a statement announcing the recipients of the prize, Minister for Foreign Affairs Charlie Flanagan said that Mr Wogan would be honoured with a posthumous award, and that "through his long and universally acclaimed broadcasting career, he always reflected all that is good about Ireland and the Irish community in Britain".
