    I’m also stuck with clue :

    25d….she met 63d in New York (7) ??R??N?

    the 63d is Brendan Martin cup won by the winner of Ladies All-Ireland team. It may be a sports person as it’s a sports crossword. I’m completely baffled!!!!!



  • Registered Users Posts: 109 ✭✭Alidee


    20d is an anagram, and you have all the letters there. 20a is a famous golfer, and again you have the letters there almost.......can I see the penny dropping?

    Can anyone help with 14a, One is skilled in a Japanese martial art (6). - - - O - L



  • Registered Users Posts: 111 ✭✭guardianangel


    14a….JUDOKA

    5d is Haaland then 14a ends in “a”



  • Registered Users Posts: 111 ✭✭guardianangel


    Sorry to say thanks for 20a and 20d….yes I’ve got them now.

    Any luck with 25d ?



  • Registered Users Posts: 109 ✭✭Alidee

    I think there’s a misprint in the crossword

    clue for 25dn should read:

    ”she met 64dn in New York” rather than 63dn. Might help you


    Stuck on 9dn myself:

    “The ladies with them have legal status at last (9)”

    C _ _ _ _ A _ _ S



  • Registered Users Posts: 111 ✭✭guardianangel


    9d…….Contracts



  • Registered Users Posts: 111 ✭✭guardianangel


    I was thinking on those lines myself as “Brendan” is correct but I could find no connection to Katie. Thanks



  • Registered Users Posts: 111 ✭✭guardianangel


    I’m stuck on 46a….From player to pundit to manager

    (7). - - M. - R. - E

    any idea on this one ?, please



  • Registered Users Posts: 111 ✭✭guardianangel


    Thanks everyone for all your help.

    I’m sorry but I’ve now discovered that my 3rd letter in 46a was incorrect. It was ‘O’ so the answer is ‘O’Rourke.’
