With the 25th season of the Premier League about to get underway, what better time to take a look back on some of the most memorable Irish moments in the league? Today we take you through the top 10 moments,while you can look back on numbers 25-11 here. As Everton fans love reminding everyone, the Toffees got a bit of a bargain when they signed Seamus Coleman for just £60,000 from Sligo Rovers and the Irish defender made an immediate impact on his home Premier League debut.
Phil Babb’s Liverpool career never really lived up to its early promise. Signed from Coventry City for £3.6million on the back of a great 1994 World Cup performance alongside Paul McGrath, the Irish international was the most expensive Premier League defender at the time. Unfortunately for Babb his most memorable Anfield moment came four years later when the Reds hosted Chelsea.
Conor McGregor promised to knock-out Floyd Mayweather inside of four rounds when the two meet inside a boxing ring on August 26. Speaking in front of 20,000 fans at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, the two-weight UFC Champion and Mayweather were on the first step of a four city tour to promote their bout.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
