Available as part of a crowd funder for Paralympics Ireland.

Commercial Director at Paralympics Ireland, Patrick Haslett sez:

State funding provided €1.28 million for Paralympics Ireland this year but the cost of leading Team Ireland to Rio 2016 is enormous. We’re asking the public to help us on our way to raising an additional €500,000 overall in 2016 so we can fully support Irish Paralympic athletes on their quest for success [details at link below]…

Rory McIlroy speaking at a press conference this morning

Further to his recent decision to opt out of the Rio Olympics due to the the Zika virus…

Rory McIlroy commented on his decision at a press conference this morning ahead of The Open.

Rory McIlroy: “I’ve no regrets about it [deciding not to take part in Rio Olympics] and I’ll probably watch the Olympics but I’m not sure golf will be one of the events I’ll watch.”

Reporter: “Which events will you watch in that case?”

McIlroy: “Probably the events that, track and field, swimming, diving. The stuff that, the stuff that matters.”

What?

Wait.

It wasn’t supposed to be like this.

Wales have beaten a much overrated and underperforming (again) Belgian side tonight in Lille.

Hal Robson-Kanu (top) performed the most successful ‘Cruyff Turn‘ since 1974 to put Wales ahead and steer them on the road to the semi-final.

Final score: Wales 3 Belgium 1
