O’Neill and Ireland can dream again

The dream is over or has it just begun? It’s not often a team exits a tournament in the last 16 with its reputation greatly enhanced.

Martin O’Neill’s Ireland have won back the hearts of the Irish supporters with a series of plucky displays in France.

The total disconnect between the players and the supporters under Trapattoni seems to have gone which is a great thing.

The Italian manager never really understood the Irish mentality but that was never going to be problem for O’Neill.

We all know this current bunch of Irish players lack quality but all we ever asked for was a team that played with passion, pride and a bit of skill.

Crowley doubt

Kerry's All Star defender Peter Crowley is a major doubt ahead of the county's Munster Final clash with Tipperary in Fitzgerald Stadium on Sunday.

Unconfirmed reports indicated that the Laune Rangers man sustained a broken nose in a behind closed doors trial game last weekend.

If this is the case then Crowley is unlikely to play any part in Sunday's Final.

It is also reported that James O'Donoghue played a leading role in that trial game although O'Donoghue is unlikely to be selected from the start against Tipperary.

Eamonn Fitzmaurice confirmed last week that Alan Fitzgerald will also miss the game along with Brendan O'Sullivan and Denis Daly.

"The injury situation has improved a good bit. Alan Fitzgerald won't be in contention for next weekend, he picked up a back injury. Brendan O'Sullivan and Denis Daly are long term absentees other than that everyone else is good to go."

Fitzmaurice was also upbeat about O'Donoghue's fitness.

"James is back, full steam ahead, he's good.

Ring romps in

It was another big weekend for rallying in Kerry with Alan Ring enjoying a flag to flag victory in the ever popular Raven's Rock Rally, run by the Carrick On Suir Motor Club. The one day rally on the Waterford stages always attracts a top field including many crews from Kerry.

For Castleisland's Alan Ring, alongside co-driver Adrian Deasy in their Ford Fiesta, it was a memorable day as he took the win by over 50 seconds and they were fastest on all of the 6 stages. A delighted Alan spoke to Kerry's Eye just after coming off the finish ramp.

"It was a great day for us and while we had a few issues they didn't hamper us too much! There was a time keeping error early in the rally but this was quickly sorted. We also had a faulty push-up valve that had us down a little down on power but we don't know how much.

"We have not been in the car since Killarney and wanted a run-out before the ALMC Stages next Sunday which is part of the Triton National Rally Championship but this surpassed all our hopes. And of course it's always great to win!"

Monika makes it to Henley Regatta finals

Killorglin's Monika Dukarska lines up against the elite of the single sculls world in the famous Henley Royal Regatta this week.

Monika was delighted to qualify earlier in the week and reflected that this is much better than her first visit to the Regatta.

"I was here in 2009 but failed to qualify which was disappointing at the time but I really didn't have the required experience. Now I have gained that and am a strong athlete but I needed every bit of my skill and experience as the competition was very tough. Only two scullers went through for the qualifying to join the 6 already in the race.

"For my qualifying race the conditions on the course were calm however recent rain fall caused a very strong flow on the Thames. There was also a stiff head wind hence conditions were hard. The race was not going to be fast. I had to focus on connecting and driving each stroke as the boat was slowing down into the flow. I went for a pre-paddle in the morning prior to the race to feel for conditions and loosen out.
