Lowry first had to play 11 holes to complete his rain-delayed second round of the 100th PGA Championship and did so in impressive fashion, signing for a 6-under 64. "I said to [my brother] Alan walking to 18, I said, 'Make birdie here and we have a right chance tomorrow.' Adding insult to injury, McIlroy enters the final round one stroke behind club professional Ben Kern. "It's a packed leaderboard and there are going to be about 10 of us looking for that round of the year tomorrow," Scott said. Lowry is happy to be among those in the mix, and have a chance to improve upon his disappointing final round at the 2016 U.S. Open when he shot 76.

The Irish Farmers' Association is calling for the urgent introduction of a fodder import scheme for farmers impacted by the drought conditions. Its president, Joe Healy, says there is no simple fix for the shortage, but the Government needs to give co-ops and merchants the best chance of sourcing fodder:"There's no one simple answer to all of this. "It's a variant of different answers. [quote]"One of them is the fodder import scheme and another one is the restrictions in the closing dates another one would be the rollout of low-cost loans.

The aerial strength and goalscoring drive of Cork’s U14s is encouragingWE took a detour through Killeagh on the road to Nowlan Park for the U21 semi-final last weekend. We’d a vested interest in these challenge matches, as two of Ballincollig’s most promising youngsters were involved, Tadhg O’Connell and James Dwyer. They’re serious hurlers, wristy and strong, and – even allowing for my bias – looked the part as the A team overpowered the Déise. James’ father Danny is the club’s intermediate boss and his uncle John coaches the Cork U21s; Danny and John both lined out for Cork from U14 up through the ranks. Two noticeable aspects of Cork’s attacking approach was their aerial strength and hunger for goals.

The Consumer Association of Ireland says anyone re-routed by the strike action who has had to pay for meals or accommodation out of their own pocket are entitled to reimbursement. Dermot Jewell, from the Consumer Association, says it is not considered a compensation element:If they've gone for the option of re-routing then that's fair enough.

By Will DowningAlex Wright came close to pulling off Ireland’s second medal of the European Athletics Championships, finishing tenth after leading with six kilometres to go in the men’s 20k walk. Wright, of Leevale AC, was up with the leading group throughout the first three-quarters of the race, capitalising on the relatively slow pace. Wright looked solid and continued up with the front men until picking up two cards himself around the 14k mark. It’s the first time I’ve led at a major Championships, so I was just a bit cautious. Recalling the potentially awkward clash caught live on TV and then replayed, Wright said: “I didn’t think anyone saw that.
