Have you heard of the relative age effect? asks Shane Keegan in a Sunday Times article headlined Calendar is tough opponent in League of Ireland. Keegan looks at research from Laura Finnegan, course leader on WIT's Recretaion and Sport Management degrees (both level 7 and level 8).

In the piece Keegan outlines Finnegan's findings, poses the question whether the relative age effect has a knock-on effect on the League of Ireland, and goes on to interview Lee Grace, one of just five men born in December playing in the League of Ireland.
