Portugal's Perfect for Kris and Paul

Killarney's Paul Nagle and his Tyrone driver Kris Meeke are once again on top of the rallying world as they won Rally de Portugal in their Abu Dhabi Total Citroen DS 3 WRC.

It was almost the perfect event for the duo and their Citroen as they dominated the rally from early on with Kris enjoying the fastest time on a number of the stages. As they are only competing in a shortened programme this year, this win is even sweeter according to Paul.

He told Kerry's Eye that the weekend could not have gone much better. "Even though it is five months since we did a gravel rally, we found the right feeling in the car from very early on and Kris was in brilliant form. Maybe it was being away that had us so excited!"

They led Ogier by 31.9 seconds after Day 1 and continued their good form into Day 2.

O'Donoghue out of Munster opener

Kerry senior selector Mikey Sheehy admitted that James O'Donoghue, Johnny Buckley and Anthony Maher are all doubtful starters for Kerry's Munster Championship opener against either Clare or Limerick on June 12th.

Speaking to Kerry's Eye earlier this week Sheehy said, "This is just my own personal opinion but I would think that both James O'Donoghue and Anthony Maher will struggle to make it back in time for Clare or Limerick. They are both doing very well with their rehab but you must remember that they have very little football played.

"Johnny Buckley is also a doubt. He had an operation on his knee after the League final and has not played any football since.

"We probably made mistakes in the past playing guys who were not fit so we have learned from that. We are happy with the squad that we have and some of the young fellas that have come in have made a big impression."

Rás races into Dingle

Stage 3 of the An Post Rás saw the weather gods smiling with huge crowds on the stage, especially on top of the Conor Pass. The Stage saw the riders complete 133km from Charleville and there were constant breaks from the off.

All the riders spoke of the pace with speeds of over 48km an hour on average.

22 riders got away but this was whittled down to 8 and then 5 with 5k to go.

Pedal Heaven rider James Gullen was involved in all the action and stayed ahead up the hill to the Dingle finish just ahead of Aaron Gate, Ireland An Post Chain Reaction and Nick Holler from Germany.

The yellow jersey was retained by Clemens Fankhauser (Austria Tyrol Racing Team) who took 4th on the day.

It was a good day from a Kerry point of view with Sean Lacey the first of this county's riders home.

Kerry GAA Night of Champions at the Kingdom Greyhound Stadium

All roads lead to the Kingdom Greyhound Stadium in Tralee this Friday night for the very popular BoyleSports Kerry GAA 'Night of Champions'.

This is a chance for Kerry GAA supporters of all ages to mingle with their county football and hurling heroes.

The buzz is always electric on the night and the occasion has become one of the big Kerry GAA social events of the year. The addition of a live broadcast by Radio Kerry and Weeshie Fogarty from the Stadium will ensure a very entertaining night. Posters and handouts will be available for juveniles.

The staging of this event is a huge logistical challenge and it would not have been possible without the support of the many generous sponsors, the Clubs around the county and their many members, the GAA public at large and of course Declan Dowling and his staff at the Kingdom Greyhound Stadium.
