Na Fianna man Farrell has worked with the bulk of the current squad in recent years, having steered the Sky Blues to All-Ireland success at minor (2012) and U21 (2014 and 2017) levels.

More recently, he has worked under Pat Gilroy with the county’s hurlers and also managed the Glasnevin club in 2019.

As a player, he won six Leinster titles with the county and was part of the side that won the All-Ireland title in 1995.

He was also a founding member of the GPA, acting as the association’s CEO from 2003 to 2016.

Several high profile names had been linked with the post in recent weeks, including Gilroy, Declan Darcy and Tommy Conroy.

“Dessie has played an integral role in the success of the Dublin footballers over the past decade in his time as manager of the Dublin minor and U21 teams,” said county board chairman Seán Shanley.

“We wish Dessie the very best and look forward to the 2020 season.”

'Sesame Street' Movie Bumped Again to January 2022

Film was last moved to Summer 2021 after originally slated for a January 2021 opening

In honor of the 50th anniversary of iconic children’s program on Sunday, here is a list of some of the absolute cutest and most heartwarming celebrity guest appearances on “Sesame Street.” There are far too many to list them all  — 650 in total — but here is a smattering of our favorites, from John Krasinski helping Murray define the word “soggy,” to Julie Andrews helping Kermit the Frog sing “It Isn’t Easy Being Green.” Catch a bunch more celebrity guests including Sterling K. Brown and Elvis Costello on Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. during HBO’s “Sesame Street 50th Anniversary Celebration,” hosted by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

PBS

  • John Krasinski

    The “Office” star came on “Sesame Street” in 2011 to help Murray define the word “soggy” — hint, it means very wet. Little did Krasinski know, he would become the example of what a soggy thing looks like when he gets sprayed with a surprise blast of water from an elephant’s trunk. The best part is the into-the-camera look of defeat Krasinski gives at the end, “The Office” style.

    PBS

  • Steve Carell

    Another star of “The Office” came on the show in 2012 to explain what the word “vote” means by asking Abby Cadabby and Elmo to vote for their favorite snack foods. Spoiler: they choose the last-minute third party candidate, pizza.

    PBS

  • Lupita Nyong’o

    “12 Years a Slave” star Lupita Nyong’o visited “Sesame Street” in 2014 to help Elmo define the word “skin,” which Elmo discovers he has for the first time underneath his red fur. It’s a very touching moment.

    PBS

  • Ed Sheeran

    The “Shape of You” singer visited “Sesame Street” in 2015. He and the Muppets sang a pretty adorable song called “Two Different Worlds” about how to behave at school vs. at home.

    PBS

  • Julia Roberts

    The “Mystic Pizza” star came on the show in 1990 to demonstrate the meaning of the word “afraid,” but every time Elmo tries to scare her, he just makes her laugh because of his impossible cuteness. Go figure. 

    PBS

  • Mark Ruffalo

    Next time you’re having a bad day, play this video. Ruffalo, who plays “The Hulk” in “The Avengers” franchise, explains the meaning of the word “empathy” to Murray in a 2011 appearance. But in order to help Murray understand what he’s talking about, Ruffalo tells him the story of how he lost his favorite teddy bear, which leads the two collapse into a fuzzy puddle of tears. If that’s not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen, you might need to check your own empathy levels.

    PBS

  • Adam Sandler

    The “Happy Gilmore” star visited Sesame Street in 2009, and he brought his guitar with him. As he makes up a song about Elmo, the two brainstorm different words that rhyme with the fuzzy lil’ guy’s moniker, such as bell-mo, smell-mo, and farewell-mo. This one is also particularly cute because you can tell how much fun Sandler is genuinely having. 

    PBS

  • Michelle Obama

    The former first lady came on “Sesame Street” in 2014 to convince Grover why he should eat a healthy breakfast every morning… but little did she know that in all his excitement, he would end up eating hers.

    PBS

  • Bill Hader

    The “Trainwreck” star came on the show in 2015 to define the word “grouchy.” To get him in the spirit, Elmo and Murray present him with some of his biggest pet peeves: cereal with no milk, when a woodchuck wears his favorite hat, and of course, veggies dancing the polka. 

    PBS

  • Zach Galifianakis

    The “Hangover” star came on the show in 2015 to learn what the word “nimble” means. Murray explains it to him by unleashing a piranha muppet so that Zach runs away — nimbly! — to avoid being bitten.

    PBS

  • Queen Latifah 

    The “Last Holiday” actress visited “Sesame Street” in 1992 to do an extremely hip hip-hop number about the letter O with a little help from some Muppets.

    PBS

  • Aziz Ansari

    The “Master of None” star and Grover wear chicken suits to explain the meaning of the word “ridiculous” in a 2014 appearance. It is exactly that, but in the best possible way.

    PBS

  • Bruno Mars 

    The “Uptown Funk” singer visited “Sesame Street” way back in 2011 to sing a surprisingly catchy song about the importance of not giving up.

    PBS

  • Julie Andrews

    The “Sound of Music” and “Mary Poppins” star visited “Sesame Street” in 1973 for what may just take the cake as the most heartwarming celebrity appearance of them all.  She starts by dancing onto the iconic street with a bunch of well-choreographed trash cans, only to be surprised by Oscar the Grouch. Then she makes small talk with Big Bird and helps Kermit sing “It Not Easy Being Green.” To thank her, Kermit gives her some roses — which the Cookie Monster promptly gobbles up.

    KABC-7

  • Tyra Banks

    The supermodel visited in 2014 to sing the ABC song with Abby Cadabby — until the letter Z comes and interrupts them to complain about how his letter doesn’t get enough credit.

    PBS

  • Jason Alexander

    The “Seinfeld” star stumbles across Big Bird and a group of kids while waiting for his bus into the city on “Sesame Street” in a 1996 appearance. While teaching them how to play a game that involves jumping up and down, turning around, and then falling down, he gets so distracted that misses his bus. Totally worth it.

    PBS

  • Buzz Aldrin

    In a 2005 appearance, the famous astronaut visited “Sesame Street” to talk about outer space with a little boy named Alex, who declares that one day when he’s an astronaut, he’ll have a shirt just like Buzz’s when he comes to “Sesame Street.” 

    PBS

  • Maya Angelou

    The late poet, singer, and civil rights activist visited “Sesame Street” in 1996 to sing a song with Elmo and two kids named Lexi and Carlo about being proud of their names.

    PBS

  • Benedict Cumberbatch

    The “Sherlock” actor visited the show in 2014, where Murray decided to rename himself “Murray-arty” and become Cumberbatch’s new nemesis. In a truly mind-bending challenge, Cumberbatch enlisted the help of The Count to figure out how many apples and oranges are on the table in front of them.

    PBS

  • Janelle Monae

    The “Dirty Computer” singer visited in 2014 to sing a song called “The Power of Yet,” all about continuing to try even when things don’t work out the first time.

    PBS

  • John Mayer

    When the “Gravity” singer visited “Sesame Street” in 2009, he declared one thing for certain — “Nothing cute is about to happen.” Elmo agreed. But soon their resolve is broken and cuteness ensues when the pair slowly turn to each other and have a nice hug. 

    PBS

  • From Michelle Obama to Mark Ruffalo

    In honor of the 50th anniversary of iconic children’s program on Sunday, here is a list of some of the absolute cutest and most heartwarming celebrity guest appearances on “Sesame Street.” There are far too many to list them all  — 650 in total — but here is a smattering of our favorites, from John Krasinski helping Murray define the word “soggy,” to Julie Andrews helping Kermit the Frog sing “It Isn’t Easy Being Green.” Catch a bunch more celebrity guests including Sterling K.

    Kristen Stewart Pic ‘Seberg’ To Roll Out In February Following Oscar Qualifying Run

    EXCLUSIVE: After making its limited qualifying run this Friday, Amazon Studios’ Seberg which stars Kristen Stewart as French New Wave icon and FBI target Jean Seberg will have a platform release starting Feb. 21.

    The noir thriller directed by Benedict Andrews and written by Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel, made its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival before continuing to TIFF, Deuville and the London Film Festival among many others.

    Breathless star Seberg was the center of the FBI’s attention in the late 1960s because of her support of the civil rights movement and romantic involvement with Hakim Jamal (Anthony Mackie), among others. Seberg’s life and career are destroyed by J. Edgar Hoover’s overreaching surveillance and harassment in an effort to suppress and discredit the actress’ activism.

    Stewart executive produces with Jack O’Connell, Margaret Qualley, Zazie Beetz, Yvan Attal, Stephen Root, Colm Meaney, Vince Vaughn (he plays a ferocious FBI agent in the pic) and Anthony Mackie. Producers are Fred Berger and Brian Kavanaugh Jones of Automatik, Marina Acton, Alan Ritchson, Kate Garwood, Stephen Hopkins and Brad Pilz.

    Also in the mix this awards season for Amazon is Honey Boy which received four Independent Spirit noms including best director for Alma Har’el and Shia LaBeouf as supporting male actor (who wrote the feature based on his turbulent experiences with his father as a child actor). Amazon also has France’s official Oscar entry Les Miserables, the Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne reteam The Aeronauts, and Scott Z. Burns’ The Report which has a Golden Globe supporting actress nomination for Annette Bening.

    Freddie Mercury: Reinhold Mack spills all on HILARIOUS first meeting and creating song

    Freddie Mercury left quite the first impression with those who knew him. And now German record producer Reinhold Mack – who worked on four Queen albums and Mr Bad Guy – has revealed his “really, really funny” first meeting with the Queen singer. Speaking with uDiscover Music, the 70-year-old said: “I remember our first meeting in 1980 very well.”

    Mack continued: “I was working with Gary Moore in Los Angeles and was told Queen would be in Musicland Studios, in Munich, and might need me. 

    “I bought a plane ticket and went to Munich. 

    “When I met Freddie, he said, ‘What are you doing here?’ 

    “I told him I had heard there might be a good chance Queen wanted to work with me.”

    The music producer continued: “He said not really, because the band were coming off a Japanese tour and only had two more weeks to spend outside the UK. 

    “‘Anyway,’ he suddenly said, ‘I hear they have these wonderful beer gardens.’ 

    “It was early summertime and we knew it was very nice outside, so we headed to the Chinese Tower for a couple of beers.

    “What happened next was really, really funny.”

    Mack revealed: “Freddie was wearing ballerina shoes, and shorts that matched his Hawaiian shirt. 

    “The beer garden was packed with full tables and about 8,000 to 10,000 people were there, all told. 

    “We had to walk right through this huge crowd. 

    “We walked next to each other, his arm hooked through mine, with all his other people walking behind us, and it must have looked really weird.”

    What happened next was the beginning of one of Queen’s best-loved songs.

    He said: “We became very happy with the beers and we went back to the studio and that is where the Crazy Little Thing Called Love single started for the album The Game. 

    “Freddie assured me that he couldn’t play guitar, but he would play the melody for me anyway. 

    “I just ended up recording the whole impromptu thing he did. A couple of hours later, drummer Roger Taylor and Deacy [John Deacon] arrived – and I asked them if they wanted to listen to the song.”

    Mack added: “They weren’t sure and thought the studio I had set up was a bit basic. 

    “I said, ‘Why not give it a listen – it’s three minutes out of your life and it won’t hurt. If you hate it.’ 

    “I told them, ‘I can just wipe the tape and it’s gone.’ They checked it out and said, ‘Oh, this is really good – we should finish this’. 

    “This is how working with them started and a few hours later we had the brilliant Crazy Little Thing Called Love finished – and it was the song Freddie wrote in his Munich hotel.”

    Huey Lewis Says He Was Suicidal After Hearing Loss Diagnosis: 'I Actually Contemplated My Demise'

    Huey Lewis

    Huey Lewis has struggled to cope with his hearing loss diagnosis.

    In a new interview with the Whitefish Review, a literary journal in Montana, the beloved singer and frontman of Huey Lewis and the News opened up about living with Ménière’s disease and revealed that he contemplated death by suicide when he first got the news.

    “This [his diagnosis] has ruined everything. This has absolutely ruined everything,” Lewis, 69, told the Review. “I try not to let it get me down.”

    “In the first two months of this, I was suicidal,” he admitted. “I can honestly share that with you. I thought, s—, I’m just going to commit suicide. I actually contemplated my demise. You know, like pills. I figured pills were the easiest way to go. I mean, would I have? I don’t know.”

    Ménière’s disease is an inner-ear disorder that produces feelings of vertigo, as well as tinnitus (or ringing) and hearing loss. The lifelong rocker said he first noticed the symptoms in March 2018 during a performance in Dallas, and that it has become most severe since then.

    Huey Lewis

    “This is now a year and eight months, and it’s awful,” Lewis said in the interview. “I can’t hear music. It’s hard enough to hear speech. But music is impossible.”

    “The music is cacophony for me and now my hearing fluctuates. I can actually get better sometimes where I think, ‘Oh, my gosh, I can almost sing.’ And I have sung twice in the last two years when my hearing was better. And I sang one song acoustically. But I couldn’t do it for a set,” he added.

    In April 2018, Lewis canceled all upcoming tour dates for the band so that he could deal with the diagnosis. While he misses his work and the “camaraderie” of his band, Lewis said his fans have helped him get through the difficult reality.

    “The fans have been amazing — the letters I get. The support I get from people, ordinary people, is amazing,” he said. “Because when you do this, you don’t think about that. You do it because you’re just writing a song. You’re having fun, and you don’t realize you’re affecting people’s lives. And I get these letters from people who have cancer or they’re debilitated somehow or have life-threatening stuff going on.”

    “I was always going so fast, I would never take a chance to really appreciate what that means,” he added.

    Earlier this month Huey Lewis and the News announced a new album, Weather, which will be released Feb. 14, 2020 — as well as a new single, out now, titled “While We’re Young.”

    The disc, which includes seven tracks, marks the first release of original material since their album Plan B in 2001. It was recorded by the Grammy-winning band at their own Troutfarm Studio in Marin County, California.

    The music was largely recorded before Lewis was diagnosed with Ménière’s disease.

    If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), text “STRENGTH” to the Crisis Text Line at 741-741 or go to suicidepreventionlifeline.org.

    Jax Taylor & Brittany Cartwright: FINALLY Address Pregnancy Rumors!

    Looks like we’re on the verge of some big news from the world of Pumptinis and See You Next Tuesday celebrations!

    From the moment Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright got married back in July, there have been rumors that the couple is secretly expecting their first child.

    Brittany addressed those rumors in a recent interview with Hollywood Life, and her comments have fans thinking a pregnancy announcement is on the way.

    Which is a little weird, considering she flat-out stated several times that she’s not currently pregnant.

    “I feel like I always say this answer, but it’s almost, it’s like the sense of family that I know that we’re together, and that we’re going to try for a family eventually, and that we’re starting something, it’s really cool,” Cartwright told the outlet.

    “I mean we’re in the process, yeah, I’m super excited,” she added, confirming that she and Jax are actively working on having a baby.

    Brit went on to say that she “hopes” to have a baby in 2020 but reiterated, “I’m not pregnant yet, I’ll say it again.”

    If and when they welcome a child, the couple will become the first members of the Vanderpump Rules cast to become parents, perhaps signaling the start of a new era for the long-running Bravo series.

    No doubt it’s an exciting time for all the former SUR staffers (We know they technically still work at the West Hollywood eatery — but, c’mon.), however, until she makes an announcement, it seems Brittany will have to contend with obnoxious speculation from over-eager fans.

    “Oh man, so you diet, you diet, you diet, you diet for a wedding, you lose a bunch of weight, you’re so stressed, you’re so excited, you can’t wait, and you’re working out so hard,” she said of the fascination with her waistline.

    “And then after the wedding you might gain some, and then all of a sudden you’re pregnant. Which I know people are stoked, super excited for if we do become pregnant. I am too. But sometimes you just gain weight,” Cartwright added.

    Brit continued her generous interpretation of the situation by sharing her response to all those “baby bump photos” floating around social media:

    “I just try to be like, ‘Okay, that’s an unflattering photo. I know I can get my angles right and I’ll be okay.’ I just have to think of it like that,” she said.

    “I know people are excited. It can hurt your feelings, of course, if you’re feeling down on yourself, but I always try to stay as positive as I can.”

    That’s exactly the attitude that’s made Britanny such a fan favorite on Bravo.

    We wish these two all the best in their efforts to conceive.

    Obviously, it would be a very bad time for Jax to get fired from Vanderpump Rules, but to be clear, that should totally still happen, because Jax is a bigot.

    But hey, these two will be fine either way.

    After all, people will always like Brittany.

    Scientists discovered 71 new species in 2019 including goblin spiders, sea slugs and a fish called Wakanda – The Sun

    DOZENS of new branches on Earth’s tree of life were discovered this year thanks to a team of researchers that scoured the globe for new species.

    Mediterranean ants, goblin spiders, sea slugs, flowering plants and coral were just some of the 71 new species researchers at the California Academy of Sciences uncovered this year.


    In total, 17 fish, 15 geckos, eight flowering plants, six sea slugs, five arachnids, four eels, three ants, three skinks, two skates, two wasps, two mosses, two corals, and two lizards were discovered by scientists across five continents and three oceans.

    Researchers made the incredible finds by “venturing into Croatian caves, diving to extreme ocean depths, and surveying savanna forests,'' the academy said in a statement.

    Among the finds was a bright purple fish dubbed Cirrhilabrus wakanda — a nod to the Marvel comic and hit movie, Black Panther.

    The colorful species is found in “Twilight Zone” reefs in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania, about 260 feet below the surface.


    “When we thought about the secretive and isolated nature of these unexplored African reefs, we knew we had to name this new species after Wakanda," Yi-Kai Tea, lead author of the study, told CNN.

    Another discovery, a rare white-blossomed plant named Trembleya altoparaisensis, had proven especially difficult to find in the wild, Emeritus Curator of Botany Frank Almeda said.

    “People don’t think plants move but they do,” he said. “When an environment changes, plants will move to areas that better suit them.”

    Another find was the myrmecicultor chihuahuensis arachnid — an ant-loving spider that calls the Chihuahuan Desert in Mexico home, while researchers also uncovered a striking cat-eyed cardinalfish that swims in the waters of Papua New Guinea.


    And there are still plenty more yet to be unearthed.

    “Despite decades of tirelessly scouring some of the most familiar and remote places on Earth, biodiversity scientists estimate that more than 90% of nature’s species remain unknown,” Shannon Bennett, PhD, and Academy Chief of Science, said.

    “Each newly discovered species serves as an important reminder of the critical role we play in better understanding and preserving these precious ecosystems.”

     

    Sadly, the new number of new species discovered falls well short of the number of species at risk of potential extinction, with the United Nations warning earlier this year as many as one million are at risk.

    “The overwhelming evidence of the IPBES Global Assessment, from a wide range of different fields of knowledge, presents an ominous picture,”  Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Chair, Sir Robert Watson, said in May.

    “The health of ecosystems on which we and all other species depend is deteriorating more rapidly than ever. We are eroding the very foundations of our economies, livelihoods, food security, health and quality of life worldwide.”

    J. Cole Announces Second Annual Dreamville Fest

    J. Cole has announced the second annual Dreamville Festival will take place on April 4, 2020, at Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina.

    Cole has promised a legendary event for all attendees. Cole and his Dreamville buddies will be joined by a number of up-and-coming stars as well as some established acts.

    The entire lineup taking over Dorothea Dix Park will be curated and unveiled by Cole early next year.

    A portion of the proceeds from the 2020 edition will be given to the Dreamville Foundation and the Dorothea Dix Park Conservancy program.

    Back in July, Dreamville shared the Revenge of the Dreamers III compilation featuring “Down Bad” and “Middle Child.”

    All the Gifts Your Dog Definitely Needs This Holiday Season


    Back in July, I woke up on a random Saturday and decided that was the day I was going to adopt a dog. I drove four hours to a small town in Pennsylvania and brought home a baby Bernese Mountain Dog that I named Sully. I have since become ridiculously obsessed with him and think he is absolutely the greatest thing to ever happen to me. As a result? I spoil him rotten. While I still have to do quite a bit of Christmas shopping for my friends and family, Sully already has an enormous pile of dog gifts under the tree.

    We love giving gifts this time of year but if we’re being honest, we love spoiling our pets the most. Nothing beats the excitement on their furry little faces when you bring home a treat or new toy. Sure, doggie bones are nice and your dog will definitely love chowing down on them but there are so many unique and adorable gifts these days that we wanted to make sure you’re seeing the best of the best while shopping for your doggo. Ahead, you’ll find the best dog gifts 2019 has to offer. I only ask that you please tweet me pictures of your dogs enjoying them because nothing brightens my day more than cute doggy pictures.

    Faux Fur Dog Bed

    Dog bed, but make it fashion. This comfy and cozy bed also doubles as stylish rug for your home. It’s really a gift for your dog AND you.

    BarkBox

    Why not give a gift that lasts all year long? Every BarkBox has two innovative toys, two bags of all-natural treats and a chew made in the USA. Every box is curated with a different theme and an entirely brand new experience. BarkBox subscriptions start as low as $29 a month.

    Vegan Leather Leash and Collar

    Leather collars look good on every dog but we definitely feel guilty purchasing leather. This one is 100% vegan so you can enjoy the gorgeaous leather aesthetic without any of the guilt. 

    SmartBones

    A great alternative to raw hide, these chews are a safe and delicious treat. I usually give Sully one when I leave the house and he gets so distracted that he doesn’t even notice me leaving. 

    Bully Sticks

    These are hands down Sully’s favorite treat. He goes nuts for them and I love knowing that they’re totally digestible and safe for him to chow down on. These particular bully sticks are also odor free so your dog can chew them in your home without needing to burn a candle to mask the smell. 

    Furbo

    We love to spy on our pets while we’re away and make sur they’re not gettinginto any trouble. This genius invention not only lets you check up on your pup, but lets you toss them a treat remotely so they feel a little better anout being left home alone. 

    Elk Antler

    I give Sully one of these to chew on whenever I need him to leave me alone so I can get work done. He would chew it for hours if I let him. They are pricey, but ne antler lasts about one month so you definitely get a lot of ouse out of it. 

     

    Slipper Toy

    I’m not sure why dogs are obsessed with chewing slippers but they are. In an attempt to save your own slippers, give them a pair that you are totally OK with them destroying. 

     

    Bandana

    Buffalo check is the trendiest pattern this season and a cute bandana is an easy way to add a little festive flair to your pup’s outfit. It will help keep them warm and you’ll be able to take the perfect Insta pic. 

    Soup Bones

    These chews last a bit longer than most other chew treats and they aren’t filled with a bunch of processed ingredients. In the summer, I freeze them for Sully as a nice, cool treat but they’re just as delicious during the winter months. 

    Whistle Go Tracking Device

    Your dog may not appreciate this gift right away, but if they ever get lost they (and you) will be thankful for this purchase. This small device snaps right onto their collar and is waterproof so even if they decide to go for a swim, you’ll be able to find them. 

    Ultra-Durable Chew Toy

    If you have an aggressive chewer, this is the toy for you. Practicaly indestruictible, this ring is non-toxic and made from natural rubber.
