Michael McKillop retains his gold medal in the T37 1,500 metres

He won the event in style, finishing in a time of 4:12:11 to claim the fourth Paralympic gold of his career.

Hillary Clinton says she regrets calling half of Donald Trump's supporters 'deplorables'

Hillary Clinton has rowed back on her claim that half of Donald Trump's supporters belong in a "basket of deplorables" of racists, homophobes, sexists, xenophobes, and Islamophobes.

The Democratic nominee was forced to state she regretted her words after accusing Mr Trump of galvanising this "irredeemable" group, saying "he has lifted them up".

Speaking at an LGBT fundraiser in New York, Mrs Clinton said: "You can put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables ... the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic - you name it."

Famine victims remembered at state ceremony in Glasnevin Cemetery

Famine victims were remembered yesterday at a state ceremony at Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin, some 164 years after the outbreak of the devastating potato blight.

The National Famine Commemoration event included prayers of remembrance, military honours and a wreath-laying ceremony by ambassadors to Ireland.

President Michael D Higgins delivered an address before unveiling a famine cross as a memorial to the more than 1 million people who perished.

Kilkenny overcome Cork to claim All-Ireland glory

Kilkenny turned on the style in the second half to power past Cork in the All-Ireland camogie final at Croke Park on Sunday.

At half-time, the League champions led by two points, 0-08 to 0-06, and it had been clear from even before the throw-in that there was no love lost between the two sides.

The turning point came in the second half however, as Kilkenny began to make their dominance count.

State of Wisconsin appeal against Brendan Dassey's overturned conviction

Last month it was confirmed that Brendan Dassey - one of the two men convicted of murder and the focus of the Netflix docu-series Making A Murderer - was having his conviction overturned and he was to be released from prison within the next 90 days.

Federal judge William Duffin ruled on Friday that investigators had made false promises to Dassey that he "had nothing to worry about".

His ruling said the "repeated false promises, when considered in conjunction with all relevant factors, most especially Dassey's age, intellectual deficits, and the absence of a supportive adult, rendered Dassey's confession involuntary" under the US Constitution.

But now the State Of Wisconsin Attorney General's office has made the decision to fight Judge Duffin's ruling - which means that Dassey could now be prevented from being released.
