Rob Kearney


Irish rugby legend Rob Kearney has been announced as the ‘Face of Christmas Jumper Day’ for CMRF Crumlin, to raise vital funds for CHI Crumlin and the National Children’s Research Centre. The CMRF Christmas Jumper Day will launch in schools and businesses across Ireland from November, and aims to raise €50,000 for some of Ireland’s sickest children.

Rob, who is a CMRF Crumlin ambassador, is encouraging teachers and students to set up a Christmas Jumper Day fundraiser in their school; and employees to set up a Christmas Jumper Day fundraiser in their companies, in aid of CMRF Crumlin.

“Christmas Jumper Day is a great way to support sick children in Crumlin hospital.” Rob Kearney said, “Over 150,000 children go through the doors of CHI Crumlin every year. CMRF has helped families in most communities across Ireland, so I’m proud to support this campaign. Hopefully I can encourage as many children, teachers and companies as possible to raise vital funds for sick children.

"Childhood illness takes too many precious moments of laughter, play and happiness. Christmas should be a special time for them no matter where they are. I’m calling on schools and companies across Ireland to join me, and host a Christmas Jumper Day in aid of CMRF, so that they can create some magical memories for sick children this Christmas.”

CMRF Crumlin is encouraging people taking part in Christmas Jumper Day to share photos on social media and to tag @cmrf_crumlin using the hashtags #ChristmasJumperDay and #WhateverItTakes.

Christmas Jumper Day packs can be sent out to schools and companies looking to participate in the nationwide fundraiser. Interested participants can email Sinead Nolan on christmasjumperday@cmrf.org to order their packs.



Pop superstar Katy Perry sat down with Eoghan McDermott to play one of our favourite teenage 'would you rather games' in a video that has since gone viral.

Katy was faced with a very difficult decision – choosing whether to snog, marry or avoid three of Ireland's top sporting stars. 

Dublin footballer Bernard Brogan, Galway hurling Joe Canning as well as Ireland full-back rugby player Rob Kearney were her three choices.

It was a tense decision-making process, with Katy telling Eoghan she couldn't possibly commit to marrying someone she had never met, and so changed the game to kiss, f***, discard.

Ultimately, she made the swift decision to bed Rob Kearney, shift Joe Canning and avoid 'trying her luck' with Dubliner Bernard Brogan.

Although they might not have been the star of the show at Jamie Heaslip and Sheena O Buachalla's wedding yesterday, we couldn't help but notice how loved up Rob Kearney and his model girlfriend, Jess Redden looked.

The pair, who have been together for two years, enjoyed yesterday's ceremony in Stephen's Green alongside a host of other Irish rugby stars.

Rob and Jess both took to social media to share their congrats with the newly married couple but we were too busy admiring them as a couple.

23-year-old Jess posted a beautiful picture of herself and her other half on Instagram with the caption:

"To the bride and groom."

While 30-year-old Rob shared a snap of the wedding table he and his teammates from themselves on.

"Strong to V strong table."

The couple have not been shy about sharing pictures before either so these just add to a long list of romantic snaps.


@leinsterrugby awards ball with the belle. Well done @ben.teo on his deserved award.

From weddings to workouts, there is no doubt that Rob and Jess are one seriously cute couple.

Well would you look at who we spotted having a smashing good time in the sunshine.

Ahead of some serious training in preparation for the World Cup it looks some of our favourite Irish rugby stars are indulging in some much needed R&R. Surely this is how all high-performance athletes blow off some steam ahead of their big competitions, right?

The lads do look like they’re in good form though, and we do give some recognition to the Kearney brothers for representing their Leinster colours.

Surely that bright blue was eye catching enough to distract the competition. We’re not going to lie, it certainly caught our eye while we were mid-scroll on Instagram. 

Here they are working on their hand-eye coordination:

They also enjoy a nice sunset:


Couldn't pick a better group to get my downtown with #r&r

It's certainly nice to see that some people are enjoying their summer season. Let us never forget the summer of blue shorts. 

Thanks guys!




Rob Kearney has slammed reports he had a cheeky kiss with TV presenter, Laura Whitmore at this weekend’s Electric Picnic festival.

An article in the Irish Mirror had said that the two were seen getting close at the festival with much flirting and kissing going on, hmm!

According to Rob, however, the report is “totally untrue” as he took to his Twitter account to voice his annoyance: “@Demelzadeburca inaccurate and totally untrue article you’ve written. As a result I’ll never do another sports interview with your paper!”

Eek, you know that old Irish saying, right? Whatever happens at Electric Picnic stays at Electric Picnic! 



TV star Kathryn Thomas made us green with envy by posting a snap with two of the hottest men in Ireland.

The Operation Transformation star posted the picture on Twitter at an event this weekend nestled in between rugby hunk Rob Kearney and The Voice Ireland star Bressie.

Good work Kathryn, but maybe send us an invite next time!
