Mayo hurler Shane Morley has been chosen on the Irish Hurling/Shinty Senior International side to face Scotland over the coming weeks. Morley impressed Irish manager Joe Dooley (Offaly) at recent trials held in Dublin, and was chosen on the 18-man Irish squad to face the Scots in the two-legged series. The opening game between the sides takes place tomorrow (Saturday) in Athy, Kildare, at 3pm - with the return leg taking place in Bught Park in Inverness on the following Saturday, October 29 at 2pm. The home game in Athy will be televised live on TG4 at 3pm. The side with the best aggregate score over the two legs in the hybrid game will win the series. Morley is one of eight players chosen from Christy Ring Cup counties, with 10 players on the panel being chosen from the McCarthy Cup sides. Michael Rice (Kilkenny) will captain the side in the series, while Tipperary duo Eoin Kelly and Brendan Maher are also included. Other notable names from the McCarthy Cup counties include Joe Bergin (Offaly) and Arron Graffin (Antrim). Twenty-six-year-old Morley (Tooreen) - who is making his first appearance in the Irish jersey - is the only Connacht player included in the 18-man squad.

Our image today is of an original drawing done in 1958 by Belfast artist Raymond Piper (now deceased) of the beautiful staircase in the Great Southern Hotel. When one entered the hotel, the reception desk was to the left, there was a small corridor leading to the dining room on the left, and another leading to the bar on the right. Just past these was a comfortable lounge area, and at the end of this was this magnificent staircase leading to reception rooms upstairs, and directly to the station platform.

It was mixed fortunes for Kilkenny hurling last weekend. The county side got off to the best possible start in the league when they proved too strong for All-Ireland champions Tipperary. While on Sunday both John Lockes of Callan and Dicksboro saw their All-Ireland aspirations go up in smoke against their Cork counterparts.
While they may not have gotten their five in a row on All-Ireland Sunday, the Cats added their five to the 2010 GAA All-star team.
