Sky News have apologised to offensive comments made about Stephanie Roche and Peamount United on their morning Newspaper review show on the Morning Sunrise programme.


In yesterday's newspaper review, the topic was on the Puskas award and Stephanie Roche's wonderful goal for Peamount United in the Irish Women's League against Wexford Youths.

Tom Newton Dunn, the Sun's political editor, was the source of the comment in which he labelled Peamount United as "some bog-trotting side in Ireland somewhere".

Stephanie Roche who scored the greatest goal possibly ever. Watch what she does here, turn and right in the back of the net, a truly terrific goal from some...um...bog-trotting side in Ireland somewhere.

Sky News have said that no offence was meant in the comments.
