On the way to visiting the famous Guinness Storehouse, they had their wallets and matchday tickets stolen by thieves. RTE Sport explains what happened next:
Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov is best known for his laconic artistry on the pitch, but over the last year or so he's used Facebook to show off the artistic pursuits contained in his sketchbook. At least, the ones that aren't too sensual for social media.
I saw what one of my fellow photographers, Mr Andrew Him who shoots for The Unofficial Woodlands Wellington Supporters' Club (The Black Sheep), posted on his Facebook page days ago on taking match photos at various S.League venue that I thought it would be good to share what he said.
