2 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 Tanker crash kills man A MAN has died after a lorry tanker veered off the road in Co Monaghan. The crash occurred at around 7.20am yesterday morning in Knockaconny. The man, aged in his 60s, was the driver of the lorry. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Gardai believe that the tanker veered off the road, before ending up in a ditch. The man’s body has been taken to the mortuary at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda for a post-mortem examination. The N12 road at Knockaconny remains closed as a forensic investigation is carried out. Gardai are appealing for witnesses. 10,000 children maimed TEN thousand Yemeni children have been killed or maimed since a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia intervened in March 2015 after the Iran-aligned Houthi group ousted the government, the United Nations children’s agency UNICEF has said. “The Yemen conflict has just hit another shameful milestone. We now have 10,000 children who have been killed or maimed since March 2015,” UNICEF spokesperson James Elder told a U.N. briefing in Geneva after returning from a visit to Yemen. Man is killed in assault PSNI detectives have launched a murder investigation after a man died in hospital following a town centre assault. The 23-year-old man was assaulted in Portadown, Co Armagh, in the early hours of Sunday morning.

SCOOTERS GO LEGAL Legislation approved for use in public ZIPPY: E-scooter user in London gets around on the nifty device TRIAL: Hutchings LEGISLATION that will allow e-scooters on Irish roads has been approved. E-scooters are currently not regulated in Ireland, as there has been no specific law covering them. Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan and Minister of State Hildegarde Naughton yesterday announced the publication of the Road Traffic and Roads Bill 2021, which will create a new class in law of powered personal transporters (PPTs), including e-scooters. The Transport Minister said he hopes to introduce the legislation in the Dail in the next few weeks. “We committed in the Programme for Government to resolving legal barriers to the use of e-scooters, as well as e-bikes, and this Bill will deliver on both of those commitments,” Minister Ryan said. Active “These proposals in the Bill should be seen as part of our wider efforts to encourage alternative forms of mobility, reduce our culture of reliance on the private car and open opportunities for active and healthy travel,” he said. THE solicitor for British army veteran Dennis Hutchings has called on the British government to halt the historical prosecution of veterans after his client’s death while on trial for attempted murder. Hutchings died in Belfast on Monday after contracting COvID-19 while he was on trial over the attempted murder of John Pat Cunningham in Co Tyrone in 1974. His lawyer said Hutchings would have told the court he fired two warning shots, but ■■Keith FALKINER The new laws will also deal with the off-road use of scramblers and quad bikes . The boss of an e-scooter firm last night hailed the move to legalise e-scooters on roads. Steve Pyer, UK & Ireland country manager at Spin, said: “We welcome the government’s decision to make e-scooters legal for use in Ireland. Safe “Responsible e-scooter programme operators like Spin have shown how e-scooter sharing schemes can be run in a way that promotes safe and responsible use that respects the needs of all road users. “Just last month, we organised e-scooter safety demonstration events in both Dublin and Cork where we showed how the latest e-scooter models can be set to sound an alarm once they are illegally ridden on a footpath. “The same technology also encourages users to make sure that they park a scooter in a designated area.” ‘DENNIS’S LAW’ PLEA another soldier fired the fatal shots. Philip Barden said: “I hope the government will enact a statute of limitation that will end the shameful pursuit of Army veterans in Northern Ireland.” EUROMILLIONS RESULTS Jackpot €17 million - no winner EUROMILLIONS LOTTO NUMBERS 4 4 20 20 12 12 l GAlWAY 14 15 11 l CORK 12 WEATHER NEAR YOU TODAY Summary: Sunny spells with some showers ISEIR NORTHwEST COAST A mostly dry day with sunny spells.

ISEIR AMAZED: Evanna Magic helped Lynch HARRY Potter star Evanna Lynch told how she has battled with anorexia since she was 11 year of age. The Harry Potter books helped get her through the horrible ordeal and eventually she was inspired to write to author JK Rowling to thank her because the spirit and magic of Harry had helped save her life.

The radio and TV host revealed he’s thought about taking part in the hit RTE One show while chatting to Westlife’s Nicky Byrne. Energy Ray told guest Nicky on his Radio One show: “In flights of fantasy, I do go, ‘Yes, that’s me...’, and then I come back down to earth, and I realise, ‘No, I just don’t have the energy or time’.” ‘SARAH’S SpiRit wAS tuning in’ COMpETITION: Nadine on show and (right) with Sarah nadine sure late pal got in contact during filming FORMER Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle has revealed she believes her late bandmate Sarah Harding was sending her messages from beyond the grave while she was filming Last Singer Standing. The 36-year-old is a judge on the RTE One show, which is set to air this Saturday, alongside Joey Fatone and Samantha Mumba, while Westlife singer Nicky Byrne will host the show. She said she believed Sarah, who died from breast cancer on September 5, “made ■■Sandra mALLON Showbiz Reporter her presence known” during filming, revealing headphones would fly off the table. The mum-of-one said: “I was so close to her in life. There’s definitely been things, she’s made her presence known a few times. As I was shooting the show, it was right in the middle of it all and people were being so kind. “There was a couple of days when the headphones just flew across the table and it happened three days in a row and the makeup girls were saying, ‘that has to be Sarah.’ “I thought, ‘It has to be Sarah, there’s no other reason why they would fly so far.’ “Then I was talking about her one night in my house and something went flying off a shelf.

She said: “The show was scheduled, everything was booked. There was no way they could take a break for me to grieve.”

4 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 ISEIR ‘FREEDOM DAY’ IS ‘THiS iS CASES RISING: Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan Tony warns of another lockdown The country’s top doctor has warned that lockdown restrictions may have to be reimposed if current measures can’t get COVID-19 under control. It comes as the country recorded another 2,399 cases of the virus yesterday, while 473 patients are in hospital and 74 are in ICU. In his letter to health Minister Stephen Donnelly, Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony holohan said the public’s compliance with basic public health measures will be “critical” in avoiding a return to more restrictive measures. he wrote: “The NPheT cautions that the re-imposition of public health restrictive measures may be warranted should the application of the above measures not have sufficient effect on the profile of disease.” however, Government ministers including Taoiseach Micheal Martin have recently said the Government would not reintroduce lockdown measures. Restrictions An avoidance of further restrictions in the future remains dependent upon “public understanding and buy-in to the basic public health measures in order to minimise opportunities for this virus to transmit,” Dr holohan said. The Chief Medical Officer has also warned that COVID-19 will get worse before it gets better. Speaking yesterday, health Minister Stephen Donnelly said he has received updated modelling from NPheT’s Professor Philip Nolan. he said: “The no policy change position is that if we were essentially to not continue with the restrictions — in other words if we were to remove all restrictions from this Friday — the modelling suggests by the end of November, [we’d] be at about 800 to 1,000 hospital cases with about, which is probably more important, about 150 to 200 of those being in ICU. “The advice from Dr holohan to me is that it’s going to get worse before it’s going to get better because there has been an increase in cases and we haven’t yet seen that increase in cases translate into hospital and ICU.” STADIA BACK TO MAX CAP THE Aviva Stadium will play host to crowds of 50,000 for Ireland’s World Cup qualifier against Portugal and the November rugby internationals after the latest lifting of COVID-19 restrictions. The government announcement that sports stadiums can be at full capacity from this Friday will be a financial boon to the FAI and IRFU as a hectic month of November looms. The FAI are set for a €1.2M boost with a full house for the World Cup qualifier with Portugal on November 11. Andy Farrell’s Ireland rugby team also face Japan at the Lansdowne Road venue on November 6, and will return to the Aviva on Saturday November 13 for a showdown with New Zealand. ■ Fuming publicans: More bars will close if restrictions remain New rules at a glance NPHET has recommended that ●masks and social distancing measures remain in place until February 2022. Covid certs (inset) will be required for entrance to hospitality venues and nightclubs. Table service only will continue in ●pubs and restaurants with a cap of 10 persons per table, or 15 including children. There will be no capacity limit on indoor or outdoor events — giving major sporting events and concerts the green light. Nightclubs will be allowed to reopen for the first time in 19 months on Friday, however, the specific rules are still being developed and were not confirmed yesterday. The Government announced that ●a ‘phased’ return to workplaces will continue but a full return will not be possible until spring of 2022. PUBLICANS have warned that maintaining restrictions in the industry will see dozens of more bars close by the end of the year — describing the Government’s latest plans as “utter lunacy”. Taoiseach Michael Martin yesterday confirmed the nation’s worst fears as he revealed that Friday’s ‘Freedom Day’ has been stalled until next February at the earliest. however there was some good news for nightclub owners and revellers alike, as the Government confirmed that they can reopen on Friday — with the Taoiseach declaring: “What traditionally happens in a nightclub will continue to happen in a nightclub.” The new rules announced for the sector mean: ● Vaccine certs will be needed for entry into pubs, restaurants and nightclubs. ● Table service must remain in pubs, with a maximum of 10 people per table. ● Dancing will be allowed in nightclubs, but social distancing will have to be adhered to. ● Live music shows will have to be allseater events. Announcing the measures yesterday, the Taoiseach acknowledged that there would be anomalies with the new rules, such as dancing being allowed in nightclubs, but no sitting at the bar in pubs. he added: “Inevitably, some people will PINT OF NO RETURN: (l-r) VFI chief executive Padraig Cribben, LVA chairman Ronan Lynch, LVA CEO Donall O’Keeffe and LVA chair Noel Anderson at a protest last year ■ clubs to open but will need certs & social distancing ?? Days ’til FREEDOM* *WELL, THERE’S ALWAYS NEXT YEAR ■■Nicola DONNELLY say, hang on a second, how come you can have dancing in a nightclub, but you can’t have dancing at a live venue, for example. “And I think first of all, we have to accept that it is an anomaly. “And the advice we have from NPheT is that we could proceed with the reopening, we want to obviously open up the economy as much as possible.” But there are fears that maintaining restrictions will lead to the closure of more and more pubs. One furious publican has called it “utter lunacy” that pubs must continue with mandatory table service, reduced capacity and no bar counter service — while nightclubs can reopen for dancing. Noel Anderson, managing director of Dublin’s Lemon and Duke pub and the Bridge 1859, has warned there will be “mass disobedience”. “If people are allowed at a bar in a nightclub and allowed to dance but not allowed to leave their seats in the traditional pub, there will be mass disobedience,” Mr Anderson, who is also chair of the Licensed Vintners Association (LVA), warned. “You can’t have one rule for one nightlife establishment and another rule for another. It’s utter lunacy.” Dance Noel said because he has a music, singing and dance licence, he can “change his pub to a nightclub” at a certain time. “The lunacy is I can say the Lemon and Duke is a nightclub at 11.30pm or 12.30pm and allow customers dance.” And because the number of people permitted at a table is remaining at 10, he has already had to cancel parties from this weekend onwards. “It will be the end of Christmas parties — unless they have them in nightclubs,” he warned. Ronan Lynch, of the Swan Bar on Dublin’s Aungier Street, called the treatment of the pub industry by the Government’s latest decisions “absolutely appalling and shambolic”. “For an industry that has sacrificed so much, we have done everything right, but we have been treated appalling by the Government’s decisions,” he said. “It’s another sucker punch. The ICU capacity has not been addressed in any shape or form and there has been no thought put into ventilation systems. “It’s shambolic. We are trying to run a business, we are trying to give employment.” Meanwhile, Michael O’Donovan, proprietor of the Castle Inn in Cork, said he fears it is inevitable more pubs will shut their doors for good within the next 12 months.

ISEIR IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 5 PUT BACK TILL ’22 LUNAcy’ BLOW: Pubs could be forced to close their doors for good; (inset) nightclubs and DJ Sunil Sharpe Last week, Revenue figures showed almost 350 pubs have closed since the pandemic began. “Pubs are fighting for survival. We have done everything right. We have been losing money most weeks and now our electricity and gas bills are going up,” Michael told The Star. “it is hard to get your head around it. You can dance in a nightclub but you have to remain seated in a pub, with reduced capacity.” Michael also said because new guidelines have not yet been issued, he and other publicans in Cork do not know what to expect with the annual Cork Jazz Festival taking place this weekend. “We are 80 hours from the Jazz Festival and we don’t know what the guidelines are for operating late venues. There are nearly more questions than answers with these announcements. it feels very unfair for publicans.” Mellett’s Emporium in swinford, Co Mayo, has blasted the latest announcement as “an attack on small rural pubs”. BOTTLED IT: Martin has rowed back on plans to lift harsh pandemic pub rules “We’ve done absolutely everything asked of us so far but how the hell do we expect customers to remain seated when they can dance in a nightclub, which incidentally is 40km away. an outright attack on small rural pubs,” the family-owned pub tweeted. Reacting to the announcement, the Vintners’ Federation of ireland (VFi) said it is a devastating blow to the sector. The VFi said the decision not to ease restrictions is a direct result of the Government failing to deal with the small percentage of people who remain unvaccinated and who have a disproportionate impact on hospitalisation numbers. Passes VFi chief executive Padraig Cribben said: “Over 92 per cent of people are vaccinated so we could easily have removed mandatory table service by limiting entry to customers with vaccine passes. “ i nstead, the Government has guaranteed the closure of more pubs over the coming months.” and LVa CEO Donall O’Keeffe expressed astonishment at the latest announcement. “All they have done is sow confusion. We now have a night-time sector reopening shortly and we don’t know what restrictions they will be trading under or whether it will be viable to open in the first place,” he said. Meanwhile, one of ireland’s top DJs has welcomed the announcement that nightclubs are set to reopen — but has called for the immediate publication of guidelines. sunil sharpe, who is also spokesperson for the Give us The night campaign representing venues and nightclubs across the country, has said it has been a long 19 months of closure for such premises. However, he said the Government’s announcement yesterday is “confusing” and more clarity is needed. “It was confusing, I think everyone across the hospitality, entertainment and music venue sector we are all still trying to decipher the announcement,” he told The Star. sunil said the issue that needs to be clarified is what are the music events for which either standing, or only sitting or standing at seats, is appropriate. “as a DJ i perform to a standing crowd, so i don’t think events like this should be postponed or scaled back on,” said sunil, who has two gigs booked to perform in both Limerick and Dublin this weekend. Jail for man who struck a protester ■■Declan BRENNAN a Man who hit a woman on the head with a wooden post during an anti-lockdown rally last year has been jailed for two years. Judge Martin nolan described the attack by Louth man Michael Quinn (30) on Ruth O’Rourke – aKa izzy Kamikaze – as cowardly. Dublin Circuit Criminal Court yesterday heard how on september 12 last year Ms Kamikaze (58) had attended a rally near Custom House in support of front line workers. she later encountered a further protest against Covid lockdown regulations outside Leinster House where Mr Quinn hit her with the post. Coward Ms Kamikaze yesterday said that after being struck she fell. she said she lay on the ground for 10 seconds with protestors “baying” for her blood. “Ten seconds is a long time to listen to that chanting. Ten seconds is a long time to listen to a mob baying for your blood,” she said. “i thought i was about to die or receive lifethreatening injuries,” Ms Kamikaze said. Quinn, of Market street, ardee, Louth, had entered a guilty plea to assault causing harm.

ISEIR 6 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 EX-GARDA’s CHILLING ‘SHAME’: Lt Gen Clancy Action due on Army abuse THE Chief of Staff of the Defence Forces has directed that a series of “immediate action” responses be carried out to issues regarding workplace behaviour and organisational culture within the Army. It comes amid a slew of sexual abuse allegations that have been made by female members of the Defence Forces. “We must ensure that these behaviours are not repeated or tolerated,” Lieutenant General Sean Clancy said. Network He added: “Having met with the Defence Forces’ women’s network on a number of occasions, I was deeply concerned and ashamed that the issues of sexual harassment, harassment and discrimination that we believed we had consigned to the past remain in our organisation today. “There is no place for any form of abuse, or failure to act on any form of inappropriate behaviour within our organisation.” Thief in jail for robbing elderly A CONVICTED sex offender who burgled three homes in a gated retirement complex in the middle of lockdown has been jailed for 45 months. Felix Moorehouse (19) of West Pier Halting Site, Dun Laoghaire, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to three burglaries and an attempted burglary at the Dublin complex on January 14, 2021. The court heard that each of the residents was over 90 years old and two of the victims met Moorehouse when he was in their home. Cash, bank cards, expensive jewellery of sentimental value and a phone were stolen. Moorehouse has 25 previous convictions, including one for sexual assault. ‘I hope Larry is convicted and jailed for killing Deirdre’ INTERVIEW: Tosh with Star reporter Michael O’Toole ‘HIS COLD EYES HAVE ALWAYS STAYED WITH ME’ A RETIRED garda who faced opened up on how he briefly met Murphy down Larry Murphy a year in the Kildare/Wicklow area in late 1997 EXCLUSIVE or early 1998, before his suspected murder of Deirdre and the attack on the before he raped and tried to kill a woman today declares: “I met ■■Michael O’TOOle Carlow woman.

And he told The Star he hoped and prayed he would face justice for that killing. “Nothing would give me greater pleasure than for Deirdre to be found and for him to charged and convicted of her murder,” he said. Mr Lavery also said he hoped that Murphy being charged and convicted of Deirdre’s murder would bring fresh hope to the families of other missing women, including JoJo Dullard. The 21-year-old from Callan, Co Kilkenny, disappeared from Moone in Kildare in November 1995. Like Deirdre, her case has been upgraded to murder, even though her body has not been found. Close Although Moone is also close to where Murphy was caught trying to kill his February 2000 victim, Mr Lavery does not believe he was involved in Ms Dollard’s murder. Instead, he believes she was killed by someone from south Leinster.

The officers believed they were being pulled over at the time by another Garda vehicle — only to find Mr Magee, who admitted he was not a member of An Garda Siochana, and claimed he’d flashed them by “accident.” Our exclusive pictures show Magee (45), who has now been suspended from driving, getting into the ‘07 Renault he was caught in on April 9 of last year — which also contained inside a fake Garda badge and radio scanner. The former haulage driver first told gardai at the scene that he “trains” Garda members, members of the Emergency Response Unit (ERU) and members of Dublin Fire Brigade. However Dublin District Court yesterday heard that he later retracted that claim under caution — once gardai made enquiries and found no evidence that that was the case. The Dubliner, who the court heard lost his job following the arrest, claimed to gardai that he had “accidentally” turned on the blue lights with his EXCLUSIVE ■■Paul HEALY Chief Reporter knee — later changing that claim to with his hand, when pulling over near his home at Myrtle House on Baldoyle’s Grange Road. Having blue lights in a civilian vehicle is in itself an offence — but not the one he was being accused of, the court heard. Gardai initially had stopped ahead of Mr Magee after seeing his vehicle flashing blue lights — and at the time believed they were in fact being “pulled over” by another unmarked Garda car. Patrol Giving evidence before the court, Garda Collins said he was in the passenger seat of a patrol car when his colleague Garda Kerry Harmon, who was driving, received an official work phone call at around 3pm on April 9, 2020. He told the court that when his colleague took the call he noticed flashing blue lights “from the vehicle directly behind us” coming from the grille of the car. At that stage he believed the vehicle, an ‘07 Renault Megane, was indicating them to pull over and stop. He told the court his colleague drove on for a short distance before pulling in — and the Renault then pulled in behind them. Garda Collins then got out and approached the Renault, and the driver, Mr Magee, also got out of his car. “I had a conversation with the accused and wanted to figure out if he was a garda, to see what the story was really,” he told the court. Garda Collins said he produced his own identification badge informing Mr Magee that he was a serving member — but Mr Magee was evIdence: fake Ids found in the car by real gardai “hesitant” to answer his ques- tions as to whether he was an officer himself. Garda Collins said the accused then told him he trained members of the ERU, Dublin Fire Brigade and gardai — but he was not a garda himself. He then made enquiries in relation to Mr Magee’s claims and at that stage he retracted the claim under caution. After walking around the vehicle Gda Collins said he discovered further blue lights at the rear, just behind the headrest. Mr Magee then allowed the officers to search his vehicle, where they discovered a Garda badge, a sign saying ‘Fire Officer On Call’ and “some sort of a radio scanner.” The accused subsequently voluntarily allowed gardai to search his home, the court heard. There gardai said they found “unofficial garda T-Shirts” and an “old school Garda hat,” as well as a Sergeant’s badge. Arrest On April 12, 2020, Mr Magee was arrested and detained and questioned by gardai. In interview he denied that he intentionally switched on the blue lights and said “on reflection that he didn’t knock the switch with his knee but with his hand,” the court heard. The switch, located beneath Mr Magee’s steering wheel, activated the blue lights, in a similar fashion to the way it works in a normal Garda vehicle. However when asked if it is possible to accidentally trigger the switch, Garda Collins said “you would really have to manoeuvre the knee” and that he never had done so. ISEIR Council wins on appeal THE Court of Appeal has overturned a €113,000 High Court award to a man who fell off his bicycle when he went over a broken concrete ramp overlapping a cattle grid. Edward O’Riordan was 64 when the accident happened while he was out for a cycle near his home in Shannon, Co Clare, on August 3, 2014. He suffered a serious injury to his left ankle and sued Clare Co Council and Response Engineering Ltd. The council appealed the High Court decision and Mr Justice Seamus Noonan, on behalf of the three-judge CoA, “with considerable regret” allowed the appeal. Building scheme opposed A DUBLIN local authority has recommended to An Bord Pleanala that a planned €135 million ‘build to rent’ apartment scheme for former Blackrock College lands be refused on a number of grounds. As part of a 69-page planning report, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council has recommended that planning permission be refused on four separate grounds for the 244 unit apartment scheme by Lioncor at lands at Cross Avenue on a site adjacent to the private fee paying school. €294k of drugs seized MORE than 15kg of drugs were uncovered at a mail centre yesterday. The herbal cannabis and 3-chloromethcathinone crystals worth €294,000 were destined for addresses in Louth, Wexford and Limerick. The haul was in parcels labelled as shoe boxes and coffee bean bags that had arrived in Athlone from Spain and the Netherlands. A Revenue spokesman said: “This seizure is part of our ongoing operations targeting the importation of illegal drugs.” Prem player’s bail extended A PREMIER League footballer arrested on suspicion of child sex offences has had his bail extended until next January.

ISEIR COVID-19: Reframing the challenge, continuing our recovery and reconnecting COVID-19: Proceeding with Caution COVID-19 infection rates are once again increasing along with hospitalisations and ICU admissions – which means that we must all continue to proceed with caution. The resilience and solidarity of our people, however, combined with exceptional support for the vaccination programme, means that we can move forward carefully. Here are four important things to know: 1 Vaccinations work 2 Act immediately if you have symptoms Vaccination is the best means of protection against COVID-19. The vaccines are free, safe and effective.. If you experience any symptoms, you must self-isolate and get tested even if you are vaccinated. Stay at home — do not go to work, school or college. Do not socialise. 3 4 Take steps now to reduce your risk of infection Your actions influence others Vaccination does not eliminate the risk of spreading the virus. That is why it is important to wear masks, clean our hands, cover up when we cough or sneeze, choose outdoors over indoors, keep our distance, and ensure indoor spaces are well ventilated. These behaviours ARE effective - they DO work. And remember if you are in a place where guidelines are not being followed and you don’t feel safe – take your business elsewhere. Think about what you can do to support and encourage all of the people around you to stay safe - your work colleagues, your clients and customers, your family members and friends. The following measures will continue for the time being: COVID-19 Pass — Proof of vaccination or recovery (e.g. Digital Covid Certificate) is necessary for access to indoor hospitality and events. Keep your distance as an important protective measure. Wear a face covering in the appropriate settings. Return to workplace continues on a phased and cautious basis Wear a face covering in the appropriate settings. We will have to live with the virus for some time to come. We must continue to work together so that it causes minimal disruption to our lives. For further information please go to gov.ie/recovery

Counsel told the court there were “red flags” during labour which went unobserved and misunderstood and Caitlin suffered very serious brain damage and is profoundly disabled. Liability in the case was admitted in August of this year. ■■Grace TRESTON A letter of apology from the Cork University Maternity Hospital (CUMH) clinical director Professor John Higgins was read to the High Court said: “On behalf of CUMH, I would like to apologise unreservedly to you and Caitlin and family for the life changing injuries caused to Caitlin at the time of delivery in CUMH on December 13, 2011.” Regret It added: “We know that Caitlin, you and your family have faced enormous difficulties since these events and we want to express our sincere regret to Caitlin you and your family for what has happened.” Caitlin had through her mother Michelle Twomey sued the HSE over the circumstances of her birth.

Bookies have been forced to slash her odds to 7/2 from 6/1 to appear on the reality TV show following the flurry of bets. Other Irish celebs who could possibly make the cut include Greg O’Shea at 8/1 and Vogue Williams at 12/1. Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “Maura Higgins would be such a fun addition to the I’m A Celeb line-up next month. With rumours flying, the odds are starting to suggest that a stint in the Welsh castle is very likely.” MOVING ON: Maura shared snaps of lovely new home Star unveils new pad but stays coy on goss ■■Katie gallagher Maura Higgins broke her silence as rumours flew of a split with her boyfriend yesterday — by sharing snaps of her new apartment. Strictly Come Dancing star Giovanni Pernice reportedly dumped the Irish reality star and model because he didn’t want to “settle down”. The professional dancer (31) is said to have split with the Irish Love Island star two weeks ago, leaving her “utterly heartbroken”. Taking to Instagram for the first time since rumours began circulating, Maura shared a video of her glamorous new home with her 3.3 million followers. In a clip, that showed off a glass dining table with white flowers, a silver mirror and velvet sofa in her new home, she said: “New place is finally coming together — I totally forgot how stressful moving is.” Break Posting a picture of her lunch, she added: “Well deserved break from unpacking.” The Irish bombshell has been dating Giovanni since June and it was believed that the former lovebirds were set to move in with one another this month. But both parties appeared to confirm the split this week by deleting all trace of each other from their social media channels. The busy stars’ “suitcase lives” and work commitments have reportedly been blamed for t h e s h o c k break-up.

12 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 ISEIR IRISH WORLD CUP BID ‘IS STILL ALIVE’ NEW STORE: Krispy Kreme in Dublin Kreme of the shop to expand KRISPY Kreme is set to open its much-hyped second store in the country next month in north Co Dublin. And it is expected the donut maker’s Swords outlet will be a massive hit on the northside of the capital — similar to when it opened its first store in West Dublin three years ago. The Blanchardstown store has enjoyed huge success locally since it opened in 2018 and it became the company’s best performer worldwide in its first year of operation. However, such was the popularity of the store, which serves hand-crafted donuts, it had to close its 24-hour drive through service within days of opening it, following reports of heavy traffic queuing up and excessive noise by local residents. Outlet The American outlet had said that the response to the Blanchardstown store’s opening was “beyond initial expectations.” It’s second store will now be located at Swords Pavilions Shopping Centre, creating several jobs, including delivery drivers and store workers. Ireland Country Manager Declan Foley said: ”We are thrilled to open our second store.” ‘Fly me to the moon’ RUSSIAN film director Klim Shipenko said yesterday he was up for making a movie on the moon or even Mars after returning from 12 days of shooting aboard the International Space Station that transformed his ideas about the possibilities of cinema. Shipenko and actress Yulia Peresild returned to Earth on Sunday after gathering more than 30 hours of material for The Challenge, billed as the first space movie and hailed by Russian media as a world-beating achievement. Asked about a possible sequel, Shipenko told reporters: “We believe space cinema should be filmed in space.” PLANS to bring the World Cup to Ireland have ramped up a notch. Government ministers have agreed to set up a company to prepare a bid to bring the FIFA World Cup here in 2030. Minister for Sport, Jack Chambers, brought the issue to Cabinet yesterday where he told his Government colleagues that plans are picking up pace in the process. The potential bid would be a joint one with the UK and would be worth “hundreds of millions” of euro to the Irish economy if successful. The formal bid must be in early next year, with FIFA to make a decision in 2024. The World Cup is up there with the Olympics as one of the top two sporting events in the world. ■ Ferghal bLANEY A spokesman for the Minister for Sport said: “Officials from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media along with the football associations and government partners of the UK and Ireland continue to undertake feasibility work to assess the viability of a bid before FIFA formally open the bidding process in 2022. “A wide range of factors will be examined during this feasibility study prior to any final decision to bid. “A bid company is being established to help direct and oversee this work. “Both the Irish Government and the FAI will make nominations to the board of this bid company. “If a decision is Whale hello there...

14 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 ISEIR OUR WORLD: SPORTING INJURIES WARNING AS PLAYERS ARE PUT AT RISK ■■Sean MccARTHAIGH An “unAcceptAbly high rate” of inter-county hurlers suspected of having sustained a concussion during a game are allowed to resume play without adequate assessment, according to a new medical study. An analysis of potential concussive events during all inter-county hurling league and championship matches in 2018 and 2019 found only 10 out of 43 players who showed one or more signs of concussion were removed from play. Researchers from University College Cork’s School of Medicine claim their findings show that action is needed from the GAA to ensure there is a consistent application of standardised concussion assessment across Gaelic games. They said similar findings from associated research on inter-county players in Gaelic football suggested that current concussion training programmes by the GAA have had limited success. Guidelines Awareness of sports-related concussion has increased in recent years and led to the GAA introducing guidelines in 2018 which recommend players with suspected concussion be removed immediately from play and medically assessed using a protocol that takes a minimum of 10 minutes to complete. However, one of the study’s co-authors, Darek Sokol-Randell, said researchers were unable to identify any assessments in line with the protocol from their analysis of 183 potential concussive events during 82 competitive inter-county hurling matches during the 2018 and 2019 seasons. “The use of a standardised assessment protocol must be enforced to ensure that concussions are not missed and that players only return to play if it is safe to do so,” said Mr Sokol-Randell. The study said because hurling is by its nature a fast-paced contact sport that places players at risk of concussion, it is imperative that concussion management guidelines are followed. It also noted that players who suffer a second head injury before a primary concussion is resolved are at risk of a severe condition called secondimpact syndrome — which can result in catastrophic brain swelling and even death. Mr Sokol- Randell said that while the phenomenon has never AlARM: Sokol-Randell been officially docu mented in Gaelic games, it is extremely dangerous. “It is important that players are made aware of these risks and feel reassured by the systems in place to protect them,” said Mr Sokol-Randell. He added: “While it is impossible to eliminate concussion from sports entirely, it is imperative that sporting leagues take measures to optimise the identification, assessment and substitution of athletes suspected of having sustained a concussion.” Assessments The video analysis of suspected concussion incidents found 86.3% of affected players were assessed by medical personnel. Of these, 81 per cent of assessments lasted less than one minute. However, the study found a strong association between the number of concussion signs and the length of the assessment. A potentially concussive event (PCE) is ‘Hurl lot of concussions get ignored’ FASt-pAceD: the study found that hurlers are often rushed back into play after suffering a blow to the head OUR WORLD defined as any incident where a player is unable to resume play in a meaningful capacity within five seconds of a direct and visible head contact. Just seven per cent of players were removed from play following a PCE — a total of 13 players, of which 10 had shown one or more visible signs of concussion. The analysis shows 25 players suffering a PCE received no assessment before returning to play. In another finding, five out of seven players visibly bleeding following a PCE were either temporarily or permanently removed from play. The study noted that a 2017 survey found 54 per cent of GAA athletes had reported a personal history of concussion with 44 per cent having experienced a blackout on two or more occasions.

It noted there was less adherence to the blood substitute rule in hurling, possibly due to the disguising effect of helmets. The study’s other coauthor, Mario Pasquale Rotundo, said the finding underscored the importance of removing players suspected of concussion so they may remove their helmet to be thoroughly assessed. he recommended education training programmes for players, coaches, volunteers and parents are promoted and made available at all ADVIce: Mr Rotundo levels to promote a grassroots change. Analysis The study also recommended video analysis each season to provide quality assurance that an appropriate level of care is being offered to players. “Increased oversight from the GAA is necessary to ensure its training events are producing the intended effects and that its concussion management guidelines are reaching players on the pitch,” said Mr Rotundo.

Unvaccinated get blame for Government failings aS SURe as a groundhog will go into hibernation, npheT has arisen from its own momentary slumber to cast a shadow of new covid curbs on the country. The omens certainly weren’t good last week when Deputy Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn went off on a solo run to declare that people should continue to work from home. His fellow risk averse zealot, Prof Phillip Nolan, went a step further as he declared anyone who pops outdoors with a sniffle these days to be as bad as a drink driver. Maybe if Irish families had access to rapid antigen tests in their homes, people wouldn’t have to go outdoors to a testing centre to discover the source of their runny nose or cough. It can’t be forgotten, of course, that Prof Nolan once described those offering antigen tests as “snake oil salesman”. Speaking of which, we seem to have ventured a long way off from when publicans were describing the Government’s plans to introduce the discriminatory vaccine certs for indoor hospitality as “like Nazism”. On the day that phrase appeared on the front page of The star on June 30 of this year, both the Licensed Vintners Association and the Vintners Federation of Ireland described the vaccine cert as a “discriminatory and unenforceable” plan that would create a two-tier society. Reversal On the same day, Labour leader Alan Kelly blabbed on about how the Government would learn a lesson for pushing this practice of discrimination, and would have to rescind the plan. Not only did the vaccine cert come to pass, but, fast forward a few months, and DOOm anD glOOm: those in the hospitality prof phillip nolan industry who were initially against it are now begging the Government to keep it going, for fear they will be hit with new restrictions. With all eyes now on those dastardly people who haven’t taken a vaccine, they are inevitably getting the blame for any remaining restrictions. Which means the Government are once again getting a free pass on the absolute shambles of a hospital system they preside over. PET TAX IS RIP-OFF THE value that a pet like a cat or a dog can bring to a household is priceless. Yet anyone already being stiffed for eye-watering rent would baulk at having to pay extra to have them live in their home. In this rip-off Republic, pet rent is now the latest way the greedy can squeeze a few more quid out of people struggling to pay their bills. Greed This issue came to the fore earlier in the week when a man who went to view an apartment in north Dublin was told he would have to shell out €75 extra a month for his two cats. Talk about rich landlords — in this case a real estate developer — getting their claws into hardpressed renters. Surely their greed has gone too fur this time though.

16 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 ISEIR ‘Pig exports are snout of order’ Defamed ambulance driver’s €32k compo ‘Reckless’ DRink-DRive GARDA cAll A GArDA alert for an ambulance driver suspected of drink driving was based on “a criminal complaint” by a senior HSE nurse manager that “was wholly without foundation”, a court has heard. The hSE was ordered to pay €32,500 in damages to paramedic gary Fitzpatrick (46) of Murroe, co Limerick, after finding he was defamed by a senior hSE nurse manager on March 26, 2017. At Ennis circuit court, Judge Brian O’callaghan said that Assistant Director of nursing (ADn) at Ennis general hospital, ■■Gordon DEEGAN carol cotter was “reckless” in making “the criminal complaint”. Judge O’callaghan said she made the allegation “without honest belief” from the point of view of the Defamation Act 2009. Judge O’callaghan said that if Mr Fitzpatrick had not self-presented at killaloe garda Station to take a breath test to disprove the allegation on the day, “undoubtedly, he would have been stopped at some stage by gardai, arrested and brought into a station”. The court heard when he did present himself to gardai for a breath test — which turned out to be negative — the garda said into his radio: “Stand down, the ambulance has self presented”. A blood test was also negative for alcohol. The court heard carol cotter called gardai in Limerick after two nurses at Ennis general hospital told her there may have been a smell of alcohol from Mr Fitzpatrick’s breath. Angry however, Judge O’callaghan said the two nurses concerned were “angry” after a stand-off that they had earlier with Mr Fitzpatrick. he said there were many steps that Ms cotter should have taken before taking the “drastic action”. Ms Cotter told the court she felt compelled to act on the nurses’ information. The judge O’callaghan also ordered that the hSE pay Mr Fitzpatrick’s costs in the case.

Prisoners Security was heavy as the judge and legal staff made their way into the court. Between 1939 and 1945 some 65,000 people died of starvation and disease or in the gas chamber at the concentration camp near gdansk, in today’s Poland. They included prisoners of war and Jews caught up in the nazis’ extermination campaign. The trial was postponed after Furchner left her home early on September 30 and went on the run for several hours, before being later detained. New tool for comm hackers A hAcking group with suspected ties to china burrowed into mobile telephone networks around the world and used specialized tools to grab calling records and text messages from telecommunication carriers, a U.S. cybersecurity company said yesterday. crowdStrike said the group, which it dubbed LightBasin, had been acting since at least 2016, but had more recently been detected wielding tools that are among the most sophisticated yet discovered. Telecoms companies have long been a top target, with attacks or attempts seen from china, Russia, iran, and others.

Back in February 2020, Donegal schoolboy Daragh Curley became famous overnight when he wrote to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp asking him to lose some games. The Glenswilly lad was left stunned when the German manager wrote back to the now 12-year-old as part of a school pen letter exercise. Daragh and his family became overnight sensations and even appeared on RTE’s Late Late Show. Now Man United have invited the Curleys to Old Trafford as their special guests for this weekend’s game against Liverpool. The family will have their own huge sofa called the Seat of Dreams from which they can watch the big game.

He revealed: “When they heard about the letter they wrote to us and invited us over, but when Covid struck we thought that was the end of it. “However, Man United were true to their word and kept in touch and last week contacted us to ask if we would like to go to Old Trafford for the Liverpool game.

22 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 ISEIR CELEBS WHO ARE olden out SCHEME: Dylan Cronin targeted blameless family Jailed for €25,000 extortion attempt A mAn who took part in an attempt to extort €25,000 from a “completely blameless” family has been jailed for 18 months. Dylan Cronin (20) and another man went to the family’s home at night, claimed one of the children was involved in drugs that had gone missing and demanded the family give them €25,000. Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard this claim was entirely false and had been concocted in order to attempt to gain the money. The blackmailers returned on two more occasions, during which property was damaged and notes were left demanding the money. Cronin, with an address at Grange Abbey Crescent, Donaghmede, Dublin, pleaded guilty to three counts of demanding money with menace at an address in malahide, Co Dublin, on September 5, September 8 and September 11, 2020. He has no previous convictions. Threats Passing sentence, Judge Patricia Ryan said this put an “enormous stress” on the family, not to mention fear. She said the offences occurred at night time at a person’s home, were planned and “veiled threats” were made. Judge Ryan said that while Cronin has said he was coerced, he was to receive two or three thousand euro for being involved in this offending behaviour. She said he allowed himself to be involved and allowed his car to be used. “It did not happen once, it did not happen twice, it happened three times,” she said. The judge said that given the serious nature of the charge, it deserved a custodial sentence. She said the court was taking “a very serious attitude” to this offending behaviour. Judge Ryan sentenced Cronin to three years’ imprisonment, but suspended the final 18 months of the sentence on strict conditions. Judge says ‘speed kills’ A JUDGE has told a court that if a motorist driving at 200 kmph crashes into someone “there is devastation and death”.

Judge Larkin commented: “I can’t imagine a car going that fast.” Solicitor for Mr Mongan, Tara Godfrey said: “It wasn’t a car like my car. It was a car that was safely able to drive at higher speeds.” But Judge Larkin described the speed as “extraordinary”.

24 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 €11k is forked out for a stick A WALKING stick once owned by Northern Ireland’s first prime minister has sold for £10,000 (€11,900) at an auction in Belfast. It comes in the year that Northern Ireland marks its centenary. Karl Bennett at Bloomfield Auctions described the aid once used by James Craig as the “star lot” of yesterday’s sale. The walking stick is made from blackthorn wood with a silver collar to commemorate Craig’s first public visit to Lurgan in 1925. While it had been expected to sell for between £4,000 (€4,700) and £5,000 (€5,930), significant interest in the item prompted bidding in the room, online and by phone to reach a surprise £10,000 (€11,900). The successful buyer was an online bidder. The auction house said the walking stick was bought by a private collector in England a few years ago for approximately £30 (€35). Star Earlier this month a walking stick which once belonged to Irish republican leader Michael Collins sold for more than £50,000 (€59,300). Mr Craig was a leading unionist figure and opposed to home rule. He became the first prime minister of Northern Ireland in 1921 and served for nearly 20 years until he died in 1940. Kidnap ransom at $17m A HAITIAN gang that kidnapped a group of American and Canadian missionaries is asking for $17 million (€14.5m) to release them, according to reports. Haiti’s Justice Minister Liszt Quitel said the FBI and Haitian police are in contact with the kidnappers and seeking the missionaries’ release.

PAL RUNS MARATHON FOR TRAGIC JOE WHO DIED HERE A FRIEND of a young football fan found dead in Ireland has run the Paris Marathon to raise awareness of the unsolved case. Joe Deacy (21) from Hertfordshire, England, died while visiting relatives near Swinford, Mayo, three years ago. The 21-year-old was discovered on August 12, 2017, outside a friend’s house in which he had been staying. He died the following day at Beaumont Hospital in Dublin. A postmortem revealed the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head. A murder inquiry was launched but On Sunday, close family friend Joe Caunce ran the race not only in his honour, but to make the world aware of an ongoing injustice. He said: “When we first heard, there were obviously rumours going around and we were just trying to make sense of what had happened. “We thought at first that it was a haemhorrage, a freak of nature accident where you might believe ‘it was their time’. You still felt really robbed and that it was early death was exacerbated by the idea that his close friend may have been killed. He added: “In the days that passed, it was identified as a blunt trauma, which opened it up as a criminal case. You felt even more robbed with just the sense of injustice. “That is the problem.

A SWORD IN THE SANDS An ISRAELI scuba diver has salvaged an ancient sword off the country’s Mediterranean coast that experts say dates back to the Crusaders. Israel’s Antiquities Authority said the man was on a weekend dive in northern Israel when he spotted a trove of ancient artefacts that included anchors, pottery and a metre-long sword. The diver was about 150 metres off the coast in five-metre-deep water when he made the discovery. Experts say the area provided shelter for ancient ships and is home to many archaeological treasures, some dating back 4,000 years. Fearing his discovery might be buried, the diver took the sword ashore and delivered it to government experts, the authority said. The weapon is estimated to be 900 years old.

ISEIR WHOOPS: Krauss ‘It’s my wurst theme’ GREAT British Bake Off’s German-born contestant Jurgen Krauss suffered the “wurst” possible fate last night.

ISEIR NEW HALLOWEEN Hallo darkne ■■Laura harding JAMIE Lee Curtis cannot believe she is playing Laurie Strode again. She couldn’t believe it back in 2018 too, when she reprised her most famous role for a reboot of the Halloween franchise, which had made her a megastar back in 1978. But here she is, at the age of 62, facing off with Michael Myers again in the next terrifying instalment of the modern trilogy helmed by filmmaker David Gordon Green. “The last thing I thought I would be doing is a Halloween movie in 2017, when Jake Gyllenhaal called me in June and said that his friend David Green wanted to speak to me,” she remembers. “It was not my intention to do another Halloween movie, I felt like I had done them. Conflict “and yet what he had written, and how he told the story of laurie, and her daughter, and her granddaughter, and all of the conflict, I felt it was really a very exciting way to tell that story. and it was a no brainer for me and I just said yes immediately. “I didn’t know it was a trilogy when we signed up for the first one. I found that out only after we’d shot the first movie. “That is when I learned we were doing more. But as soon as I understood what David was doing, to bring back not only legacy characters, but to talk about the concentric circles of grief and trauma ‘I don’t like these movies. I’m not a fan of the genre’ that happened around a centralised figure, a community in trauma. “I thought it was a really inventive way to bring back characters... this generational movie which we watched, an entire movie about three people, and start the spin cycle. “Now watch these people start to reject the system, the system fails, the police officers seem inept, they cannot help. and to watch that growing tide of people was very scary and powerful.” Trauma The daughter of Hollywood legends Tony Curtis and Janet leigh, Curtis was immediately dubbed a scream queen for her star-making turn in the 70s horror film and she has returned to the role of laurie numerous times over the years, including in the 1981 sequel, 1998’s Halloween H20 and 2002’s Halloween: resurrection. In between she’s had roles in box office hits such as a Fish Called Wanda, My girl, True Lies, Trading Places and Freaky Friday, as well as turns on TV in shows including Scream Queens and new girl. But it’s the new trilogy, which will conclude with the upcoming third instalment, entitled Halloween ends, that has brought in a different audience to laurie Strode. “I think that’s when a movie becomes a universe,” Curtis reflects. LEGACY: Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode and (below) with Judy Greer as Karen JAMIE LEE LOOKS BACK ON ICON “Before it was just a little low budget slasher movie, made in 21 days for $300,000. “Then there were a couple of movies, so you could call it a franchise, then the producers decided to make a bunch of movies. now it’s a franchise, you’re just going to churn out movie, movie, movie, movie. “When David Green showed up, he had prescience about female trauma, colliding with the MeToo movement, a movie written two years before. “In the same way that he wrote a movie in 2018, that we shot in 2019, that talks about mob violence, and a group of people rising up saying we are not going to take it any more, the system is broken, prescient to what’s going on socially all over the world. Affection “Now it’s a universe. Now it feels like because you’re bringing back legacy characters, you’re bringing in a whole new group of people, FEAR: iconic slasher villan Michael Myers in Halloween Kills audience members and young ple who are seeing it for the time. “It feels now that it is has be the Halloween universe and just elevates it, because now i grow and continue. “and the amount of affection fans can now grow and it’s r exciting.” Does she have any concern a revisiting the world so often the franchise may be run into ground?

I think there’s a very clear path here that I think will be incredibly satisfying to the audience at the end. “I think it will make them ask a lot of questions, I think they will be shocked by the ending of the next movie, and will be sort of stunned by what David Green is talking about. So that seems to be a perfect place to not run it into the ground, but actually put it up into the cloud, put it up into the universe, and let it just sort of spin around for a while. “Obviously, I’m not going to rejoin another Halloween movie so quickly, but it certainly tees it up for you to be able to explore other characters, it’s quite extraordinary what they’re doing.” But for all her protectiveness of the world of Halloween, Curtis drops one surprising fact. Excited “I don’t like these movies. I don’t watch these movies. I’m not a fan of the genre. “I am a fan of the fans of the genre. I love that people love them. I don’t have to love them. I don’t have to say they don’t have value, they have value. People love them. “I just spoke to one gentleman, he was out of his mind and he’s so excited and I’m thrilled for him that he loves these. I don’t have to love them. “I love the filmmakers. I love the filmmaking. I think the last 20 minutes of this movie are so beautiful. And yet they’re incredibly violent. “But I also think the filmmaking is exquisitely beautiful, beautiful homages, beautiful orchestration, visual orchestration. So I can appreciate the genre without being a fan of it.” ● Halloween Kills is out in cinemas now.

28 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 ISEIR Your essential guide to health ‘YOU CAN’T KID ABOUT WITH DIET’ ANNA GEARY would love to see a greater emphasis on nutrition and health in homework. The former Cork camogie star is one of the ambassadors for Laya healthcare’s Super Troopers programme — which is aimed at kids aged nine-to-12. She told Fitter Happier: “A lot of my friends have kids and I see first-hand that it’s easier to instill healthy habits the younger they are. “Often when it comes to health and wellbeing, there is this idea that it’s a chore. “Once something is fun, engaging and there is a certain element of challenge, younger people will get involved and buy into it. “The Laya Super Troopers programme, importantly, is designed around the three pillars — nutrition, physical activity and mental wellbeing. “You are giving them tips and tools that they can incorporate as nineto-12-year-olds and they can then use them as teenagers and adults.” Geary continued: “Why shouldn’t homework be around those areas? “Learning about nutrition, and physical and mental wellbeing, is just as important as maths and English. “I was really lucky in primary school that because I was involved in sport at such a young age, that taught me the importance of nutrition and making sure I was moving all the time. Age “Sport taught me that, but not every kid is involved in sport, so at least with the Laya Super Troopers programme, it’s not leaving anything to chance.” According to a study carried out on behalf of the healthcare firm, only four in 10 children are getting adequate levels of physical activity per day. Five percent of children aged between nine and 12 are not exercising on a daily basis. The positive impact physical activity has on a child’s mental health is widely recognised by parents, with 87 percent saying that their child is happier after exercise. And 76 percent of parents say they would like to see more of their child’s homework being focused on learning about nutrition and physical and mental wellbeing. The Super Troopers programme aims to educate kids in a fun way about their health and wellbeing. “This year they have introduced Laya Super Troopers TV, so there are these 10-minute online episodes which, for 28 weeks, will broadcast weekly,” Geary explained. Positive “Anybody can access them on the Laya Super Troopers website. “There are experts and ambassadors involved in them too. We talk about our own experiences and our own mental wellbeing. “It’s geared towards younger people.” Rugby star Johnny Sexton and fitness expert Karl Henry are among those who share their know-how on the weekly shows. PLEA: Anna Geary wants change in class rooms HOPES Rowing champ shares his optimism Rowing champ shares his optimism MARK POLLOCK believes that we are closer than ever to finding a cure for paralysis. And he will continue to raise funds and bring together some of the best minds in science, technology and finance until that breakthrough is finally achieved. Through his Run In The Dark initiative, over €2 million has been gathered over the last 11 years — and that has translated into something even more valuable. “What it has allowed us to do is to create collaborations worth €15m, bringing scientists, technologists and investors together,” he told Fitter Happier. Pollock, who has been blind since his early-20s and paralysed since July 2010, has set up a charity called Collaborative Cures, which he believes will speed up the search for a cure. “Over the last 10 years what we find is that fragmentation is in every part of society,” said Pollock, who medalled for Northern Ireland in the 2002 Commonwealth Rowing Championships. “And the biggest issue to finding a cure for paralysis is fragmentation between scientists, investors, charities and technologies. Collaboration “So what we are trying to do is create the conditions for collaboration. “That’s the purpose of Collaborative Cures, because fragmentation seems to be the biggest barrier to finding a cure and is slowing everything down. “So over the last 10 years or so I’ve been going around and meeting scientists, technologists and investors to try and work out how we might advance the cause of curing paralysis. “We have raised that money and created projects worth €15m, and now we have created Collaborative Cures to scale up that impact and to do more. “It’s been 10 years of building and now we are looking to the future.” In explaining his optimism, Pollock pointed to the major advances in paralysis treatment since his accident, when he broke his back in a fall from a secondstory window. “When I had my accident 10 years ago there were no robotic legs, they didn’t exist. Spinal stimulation didn’t exist. It’s now about to become commercialised,” he said. “So what we are seeing with the advances in technology as well as biology, they are driving things forward.” It wouldn’t be possible, however, without the funds raised by the thousands of people who take part every year in Run In The Dark. This year up to 25,000 people from all across the world are expected to take part, as the event goes virtual for the second year in a row. Runners will get a bandana, flashing armbands and a finisher’s medal — as well as a smartphone app that allows them to join a global leaderboard. The race organisers have teamed up with Fastway Couriers to ensure that all race packs are delivered in good time ahead of the November 17 run. “We made a decision earlier in the summer, taking a bit of a lead from the Dublin Marathon, to stick with a virtual event this year,” Pollock explained. “People will time themselves on the Run In The Dark app. “They will run wherever they are in the world and if you have got a mate in Sydney or New York or B e r l i n o r wherever, everyone gets their time on the app, they go onto a global leaderboard and they can see how they did against their friends. “You can post your time directly from the app onto social media. “It’s a virtual event, but it’s connected through the app. So hopefully lots of people will join us on the virtual start line.” The uncertainty around Covid restrictions at the time of debating how to stage this year’s race informed the decision. The impact of Covid on Pollock, however, has had a much greater reach than just the staging of his annual FINAL LAP: Mark preparing for Run in the Dark fundraiser. “I have spoken to other people with disabilities and for many of them, barriers to going out in the world are significant,” he said. “And even when you do go out in the world, there are more barriers there. So lots of people with disabilities face these challenges all the time. “I had a long period after blindness when I was 22 where I was essentially on lockdown. Lockdown “I was 16 months in hospital after my spinal cord injury, so I was very much in lockdown in the hospital bed. “So I think maybe w ith lockdow n being my third time at it, I was in a way prepared for it.” “Very early on in lockdown I had a couple of nights where I felt terrible. “But I didn’t drink for the vast majority of lockdown. I lost 15kg in body weight. “I’ve got my handbike on a turbo trainer in the living room and I’m using exercise bands and dumbbells. “So I basically got into a routine of working very early in the morning, training, another block of creative work and then onto Zoom calls in the afternoon.” What is he looking forward to now that restrictions are all but lifted? “There is nothing I like more than going out for a match. Not necessarily to the stadium, but I like to go to the pub to watch a match with friends, having pints and a burger,” he said. “I’m still being a bit cautious, but I have been a couple of times.” e-mail fitter happier: fitter@thestar.ie Workout song...Menno de Jong - Spirit (Paul Miller rework)

ROUTINE: Mark built a strict training regiment for lockdown FRagMENT: Mark Pollock praises advancements in technology IMagINE for a second what it feels like to cross the finish line of a half marathon. Most people, I believe, would associate it with positive imagery — cheering from onlookers, happiness and a sense of achievement. crossing under the finish gantry is your moment of triumph. high five, you made it! however, in these cOVID times we are not encouraging spectators to come to races. and participants are asked to leave quickly once they finish. Therefore, finishing a race is a bit more subdued than it used to be. So how do you mentally adjust for this? The way to mentally prepare for this new finishing experience is to focus inward on yourself. It is now all about you and less about everyone else. This isn’t being selfish — this is being intrinsically motivated to finish. You are in it for your own sense of satisfaction and achievement, and not a big ‘slap on the back’. Experience Let me tell you why this is a good thing. From my experience of being intrinsically motivated, I know that the positive feelings last longer and go deeper. The opposite to this is being extrinsically motivated when it is all about what other people think or say about you. That can be short lived as people move on. a mixture of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation is the best formula to have. however, I recommend that you always have more intrinsic reasons to do something. That is often a good benchmark of how successful you will be. If unsure, draw a line in a page and write them down so you can see what your motivations are. When the going gets tough, being intrinsically motivated will give you energy, perseverance and a lift. Bring some of that energy to the Wheelworx FaSTLaNE half marathon or 10km on November 7 in clondalkin. Last call for entries at www.runindublin.com. hope to see you there!

Oral care is booming. Indeed, research shows that, thanks to seeing ourselves up close on screens during the pandemic, we’re putting our money quite literally where our mouth is — and currently spending more on our smiles than ever. Looking after teeth and gums is crucial to staying healthy and keeping the immune system robust. Not to mention a gleaming smile brightens the whole face — and there has never been more choice when it comes to oral care. From the latest tweakments at the clinic, to exfoliating toothpastes and microbiome boosting supplements, it has never been easier to give your mouth a total makeover. Here, Chic Lifestyle are sharing how it’s done... aT THE ClINIC Whether you want fuller lips, to reduce a gummy smile, or improve the look of your teeth, there may well be a smile-boosting tweakment for you. The lip flip As we age, the upper lip naturally thins and turns inwards as we smile. The lip flip uses Botox to lift and boost the lips, injecting tiny amounts at the corners of the cupid’s bow and nearby. It relaxes the muscles and instantly improves the shape, giving the illusion of a fuller pout. Costs from €240, available from most clinics. Gum-tox A gummy smile, which can occur naturally or be a result of ageing, is when more of your gum shows than teeth. Injecting Botox into the upper lip helps weaken the retractor muscles, which ensures the lip won’t rise as high. Costs from €240, and results last from three to six months. Jaw-tox It’s a hard habit to break, but constantly clenching and grinding your teeth takes its toll on your smile. When your jaw muscles are overworked, they can become bulky, giving your lower face a wider, square appearance. Grinding can also cause your teeth to look worn down with chipped edges and a loss of enamel. Botox injections into the jaw muscles can stop grinding and reduce the square look of the jaw. Treatment takes five minutes and results last up to six months. Costs from €220. Cosmetic bonding Rather than expensive veneers, which require the natural tooth to be filed down into a point, the less destructive and more natural process of composite bonding is now in demand. It can solve many aesthetic issues, such as closing gaps, repairing chips, masking discolouration or restoring worn teeth. A tooth-coloured material is used to change shape and colour without causing permanent damage to the natural teeth. Pain-free, just one treatment is often required. Expect to pay from €600 per tooth. HIGH STrEET HElPErS From tooth exfoliators to gum serums, and everything in between, oral care is booming on the high street and online. Mouth makeover Spotlight Oral Care Smile Rejuvenation System, €150 (spotlightoralcare.com), is a PEarlY WHITES: Know what products to use and treatments to have to perfect your smile DON’T MISS YOUR FREE 48-PAGE ■■Rachel BERESFORD three-step at-home microneedling kit to knock years off your smile. Using a roller, a serum with actives and a lip-plumping sheet mask, it helps minimise fine lines around the mouth, cheeks and chin and tightens the jawline. Microbiome magic We know how important our gut microbiome is, but did you know we should be looking after our mouth microbiome too? While traditional toothpastes blast all bacteria – 99 per cent of which are beneficial – Gallinee Toothpaste, €14 (gallinee.com), supports the mouth microbiome with prebiotics. You could also try Gallinee Mouth and Microbiome Suckable Supplements, €20, for a prebiotic boost during the day. Enamel care By the time we reach our 40s, our teeth may suffer from enamel erosion from consuming acidic food and drink. This results in yellowing of the tooth as erosion exposes the layer of dentin underneath, which is yellow in colour. And as enamel protects the nerves and prevents them being exposed, it can also lead to hypersensitivity. Regenerate has launched a new product to tackle both issues. Hypersensitivity Toothpaste, €15.50 (feelunique.com), helps to restore enamel with a formula that shields exposed nerves, treats hypersensitivity and restores natural whiteness. Teeth conditioners The latest research shows we should condition our teeth like we condition our hair. Swiss Smile Pearl Shine Dental Conditioner, €90 (harrods.com), should be used as a second step after brushing and adds a protective layer to the teeth for 16 hours. With hydroxyapatite for strengthening and glycerin to moisturise, plus xylitol to combat tooth decay, apply the airy foam with a toothbrush or pump straight into your mouth, swill around, then spit out. Gum serum Skincare — but for your gums. Colgate’s skin-loving, serum-like Elixir Gum Booster Toothpaste, €14 (Boots), contains skin-plumping hyaluronic acid and fluoride technology to keep gums healthy and hydrated, and ward off harmful plaque. Brighter smile Research has shown that discoloured teeth can age us by 13 years. Exfoliation can help reveal a whiter smile, using ingredients like silica to gently polish the enamel and remove stains. Try London Smiling MySmile Toothpaste, €21.99 (londonsmiling.com), which was created by dentist Dr Uchenna Okoye and contains enamelrebuilding ingredients hydroxyapatite and fluoride, essential for preventing cavities.

ISEIR IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 31 starchicmag StarChic Starchicmag Pooch perfect BGT’s ASHLEIGH REVEALS HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DOG SHE won Britain’s Got Talent thanks to her amazing performances with pooch Pudsey – now dog trainer Ashleigh Butler is sharing her skills with the world in a new book. Ashleigh, who won BGT in 2012, has been training dogs since she was five, and loves spending time with them. She says: “My mum’s a dog trainer so when I was born I was thrown into it as it was something I was natural at. “It’s such a special bond that you just don’t have with people. You will come home and walk through the door and every single time, no matter how long you’ve been away for, your dog’s happy to see you.” The 26-year-old admits winning BGT completely changed her life. But sadly Pudsey is no longer with Ashleigh after his death in 2017. She has trained crossbreed Sully to take Pudsey’s place and become her main trick dog, and he comforted her through the loss of Pudsey. Ashleigh says: “The first time I performed with Sully without Pudsey something changed in him and he rose to the occasion — it was strange. “Sully helped me a lot because he’s quite sensitive. He might not have known what had happened or what was wrong but he was definitely there for me. “Dogs are way cleverer than we give them credit for.” Ashleigh, from Northampton in England, reveals Sully is currently filming for an upcoming movie. However, he hasn’t always taken to the limelight. “When Sully was younger, he lacked quite a lot of confidence,” she explains. “He was quite sensitive and noise reactive. Stage “There was a point where I thought, ‘He’s never going to get on a stage or be able to perform.’ It’s something that I’ve had to really work hard with him on. “Now he will go into most situations and cope absolutely fine — that’s a big thing for me.” Like for most people, the last year-and-ahalf of lockdowns has had an effect on Ashleigh’s day-to-day life as well as her career. She says: “It was difficult for me because I’m a person that needs a goal and a focus to train towards, then obviously I lost that.” But it did give her the chance to go for long walks with Sully, as well as her other pups — Eliza, Zula and Vi, plus new addition Nacho, who is 13 weeks old. She says: “What was really important was spending time with them and getting out of the house.” Covid has seen a huge surge in people buying puppies, with research finding more than three million households have acquired a pandemic pet. So there’s no better time for Ashleigh’s new book ‘Happy Puppy, Happy Dog’ to be released. Aimed at children and families, it covers all the basics you need to know about bringing a puppy into your life, from what to do before you get a dog to how to pick a breed that suits your lifestyle. There are also lots of fun tricks to teach, and even a guide on how to read a dog’s body language.Ashleigh says: “It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while. CoVID and a lot of people going out and getting dogs was the push I needed. “There’s loads of different training BEST PALS: Ashleigh with Pudsey on Britain’s Got Talent and (inset left) at an animal welfare awards gala ■■Rachel BERESFORD techniques that I use with my dogs in there – basic things like crate games, boundary games and also tricks. There’s something for everyone. “A lot of children — and even adults — don’t know how to read dogs’ behaviour. “That’s a big part of the book.” Ashleigh, who hopes to compete in Crufts next year, says it’s all about building confidence, making sure the dog is happy and finding out what motivates them. She says: “Every dog is completely different. Sully loves his toys but I can’t use them when training him to do tricks, otherwise he obsesses and can’t concentrate properly. “I also have to be calm when I’m training him because he’s crazy enough as it is. “They learn in different ways and want different rewards, so it’s adapting my training and methods to each dog. “My younger dog Vi prefers to work for toys — I get more concentration out of him that way. Sometimes I even use a slipper as a reward because he loves them.”

Me, myself and I prove the best company today. Treat yourself to a little of what you fancy. Sometimes for all our figuring out, a solution evades. Perhaps when we don’t want to find it. When others won’t, make an executive decision. Business and pleasure mix with ease. It’s fine to think but more important to think through and when you think through, let it go! Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that. (Martin L. King) No matter how dark the scowl, meet the sour with a sweet smile. Love is our greatest weapon in any war. ‘Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do’. (Bruce Lee) You are ready, willing and able and you know what you have to do! The time is now. ‘A man’s errors are his portals of discovery’. (James Joyce) Forgive yourself and others. We all have our faults and our failings. The important thing is to learn and to grow. Let someone know that you are not in anyone’s pocket. You are your own person. Pay heed to a man’s actions. Pay heed to a man’s deeds. If they tally, that is good account.

34 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 ISEIR 3 dear siobhanSIOBHAN I fear I hardly know the man I’ve married. a month after our wedding I received an anonymous letter telling me my new husband has a secret partner and child living 50km away. a few days later a debt collector turned up demanding €500, which I withdrew from my personal account. Haircut causes fuss at home I KEEP my hair short because it’s thinning. My new boyfriend says I need to get a transplant or he’ll dump me. I never used to be self-conscious, but he’s made me doubt myself. What’s wrong with wearing hats and scarves? I worry about the cost and the pain involved. Plus I’ve gotten quite used to the fashionable cut I ask for in the hairdressers A vivAcious colleague is actively pursuing me. co-workers tell me that she fancies me and is desperate to get me into bed. i’m flattered but she’s simply not my type. Apparently, she’s had a bad time with an abusive ex and wants to smile again. O’BRIEN ANSWERS ALL YOUR QUESTIONS NEW HUSBAND’S SECRET PAST LIFE I’ve asked him if there is anything else I should know, but he won’t say. He won’t tell me about his past lovers or business dealings, but still expects me to have sex with him and continue like nothing has happened. SIOBHaN SaYS: You have to start trusting your instincts. Don’t let pride stop you from making the most important decisions of your life. You are just married, yet your new husband is evasive and dishonest. If he won’t come clean, then you have to get out. Don’t let him drag you down to his level or steal more of your cash. Come clean to those you love and trust. They will be desperate to support you. This is no time for embarrassment.

SIOBHaN SaYS: Take the heat out of this situation by talking to your colleague in a quiet place — away from prying eyes. Gently explain that you are flattered but you’re not looking for love or to get involved in a relationship at the moment. She might be embarrassed, but there’s nothing to stop you from being both good friends and colleagues. It’s admirable that you know your own mind and aren’t being swayed by the crowd. You don’t have to justify yourself to anyone when it comes to your own love life. If there’s no chemistry, then that’s an end to it.

This whole fish is cooked with ginger, garlic and spring onions and served with noodles. Serves 4 INGREDIENTS 1 tsp sunflower oil 1 sea bass, about 800g, cleaned and scaled 1 lime, cut into 4 slices 6 spring onions, cut into fine shreds 1 carrot and a 2.5cm piece of fresh ginger, both cut into fine matchsticks 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced Just club together place the fish on top. Place the lime slices inside the fish and scatter over the spring onions, carrot, ginger and garlic. Drizzle over the soy sauce and sesame oil, and sprinkle over the coriander leaves. 3) Bring the ends of the foil together and fold and twist to seal in the fish. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 30–35 minutes or until the fish will flake easily. 4) Meanwhile, place the noodles in a saucepan of boiling 2 tbsp light soy sauce 1 tsp toasted sesame oil 1 tbsp fresh coriander leaves 250g fine Chinese egg noodles 1 tbsp sunflower oil 2 small red onions, cut to wedges 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced 300g beansprouts 3 tbsps light soy sauce water, return to the boil and simmer for three minutes. Drain well. Heat the oil in a wok, add the onions and garlic, and cook over a high heat for 30 seconds. Add the beansprouts and cook for one minute or until they begin to soften. Add the noodles together with the soy sauce. Cook over a high heat for three minutes, stirring and tossing well and serve with the fish.

The visitor’s continually re-shouted the home side’s coded calls, purposefully putting the words in different orders and introducing other similar words. So, with Munster shouting their coded throw as, say, ‘Gibraltar Red Echo Five Moyross…’ This would be met by a cacophony of Connacht players shouting variations such as ‘Echo Gibraltar Ballynanty Red’ and specifically changing the number. Munster Voices There were, it seems, lots and lots and lots of voices echoing in the Thomond night and, as it turned out, they successfully confused the Munster thrower and jumpers through the first-half. Simply put, Munster’s line-out folded! Derek FOLEY REPORTS “It is certainly not illegal,” noted van Graan when asked was it ‘illegal’, ‘gamemanship’ or a ‘brilliant stroke’. “Now, obviously with some of their players having been here before they might have had an inkling of how we call — that is just the nature of sport. “Some of the very best players in the world, someone like Maro Itoje for instance, is brilliant at the tactic and we have got to have the ability to adapt.” Worried staff couldn’t wait for half-time to try and get to grips with the confusion. “That’s what you get at half-time, a chance to readjust you strategy. I felt we did that really well. “We changed the way that we called and what we would go to, for an MAIn MAn: Beirne rises high against Connacht and (below) van Graan Beirne praised for big line-out display example a ‘silent call’, so the opposition can’t call it back to you. “Tadhg called the second-half line-out really well and that gave us the maul, that gave us penalties, that gave us second-half position. “The line-out has really become an art in terms of what you need to see. Call “ I t i s an underestimated position, your line-out caller is the player who has got to adjust in real time in terms of what it is happening next to him and when there are problems. “It is easy to make a call but executing that, looking at what the opposition bring, what do they call, how do they shift, how do they change, how much of a gap do they give you, have they got two pods or a single pod supporting, do they stay down, do they go up? “In just what I have outlined there alone, there is maybe three hours of discussions! “So somebody like Tadhg, somebody like Fineen Wycherley too, is phenomenal in that, so if I can use the example of somebody like Billy Holland, certainly one of his biggest strings is his ability to execute under pressure. “There are examples of good line-out callers all over the world, mostly second-rows and No.6’s. “But whomever calls the line-out, that’s a speciality position and you have to have the ability to perform under pressure, which was what was needed as Connacht posed us a problem that needed an urgent solution!” FAI HANDED AVIVA SELL-OUT BOOST ■■from back page fixture with ulster will take place at the Aviva on saturday. the FAI yesterday welcomed the Government announcement. In a statement, the governing body confirmed “that capacity at the Aviva stadium will return to 100 per cent” for the november 11 visit of Portugal. “We are delighted to inform supporters that pre-sale for season ticket holders, Club Ireland members and Corporate Box customers will open on thursday, October 21, with all stakeholders to be informed of sale details by email. “Public sales for all remaining tickets will commence on ticketmaster.ie from tuesday, October 26 at 10am.” Connacht scrumhalf Kieran Marmion was delighted by the news. “We are all excited by it, to get to play in the national stadium is obviously a great experience,” he said. Empty “I’d rather we had them in the sportsground but while it might feel a little bit empty, at the same it is great that we can get to the Aviva when we can.” It is a pitch that holds few fears for Connacht, not least from their last outing — beating ulster in their first game back following the suspension of the 2019/20 Guinness PrO14. “the last time we played there we played pretty well so it suits our fast game and hopefully the weather will be nice.” It was a sentiment echoed by flanker Conor Oliver — he had a sensational ruck-time steal in that game. “I like playing there because it is a faster surface and the running game is the game we want to play,” says the skerries-born flanker. “I think ulster will also want to run the ball as well so I think it is going to be a really good game. “I am hoping it is not too close and it comes out in our favour but I feel it will go down to the wire.”

38 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 A SWING AND MIS’ ■■Ben GIBSON MISHRIFF attempts to redeem himself after disappointing in Saturday’s Champion Stakes at Ascot when he runs in next month’s Breeders’ Cup at Del Mar. Winner of the Juddmonte, Saudi Cup and Sheema Classic, Mishriff finished fourth behind French raider Sealiway at Ascot. Ted Voute, racing manager for Mishriff’s owner Prince Faisal, said: “They’d a bit of rain in the morning and with both John (Gosden, trainer) and the jockey (David Egan), the first thing out of their mouths was that he wasn’t going on the ground.” Appleby on brink CHARLIE APPLEBY is on the brink of being crowned champion trainer for the very first time. Bookies have stopped taking bets on the race to be the number one as the Newmarket handler is £500,000 (€595k) clear of John and Thady Gosden. The title race, which started in January, runs until December 31. The balance of power has also returned to Godolphin with Sheikh Mohammed’s operation becoming the season’s leading owners. Appleby, who has won the ■■Michael HENNESSY Derby and St Leger, is expected to continue his phenomenal season with fancied runners at Newbury on Saturday. Contest Noble Truth is on course for the Group Three Horris Hill Stakes and Siskany lines up in the St Simon Stakes, also a Group Three contest. Meanwhile, Appleby will also continue his lucrative forays abroad with Goldspur running at Saint-Cloud on Saturday and Kemari at Longchamp on Sunday. Appleby and his team also have a huge amount to look forward to next season with as he trains two of the top colts for next year’s Classics in Native Trail and Coroebus. David Stevens, of Coral, said: “We’ve stopped all betting on the trainers’ title as Charlie is so far clear. “The Gosdens will need to win every race on the allweather. Also, it looks like Charlie has not stopped winning with his runners.” SCORE: Noble Truth with William Buick wins the Flying Scotsman Stakes from farside Hoo Ya Mal ISEIR NEWMARKET 1560 999 910 1.00 DISCOVER NEWMARKET FILLIES’ RESTRICTED NOVICE STAKES (GBB) (DIV I) (4) 7f 2yo only £4,860 10 runners. 1 (2) 531328 SILVER KITTEN (41) (D) M Johnston 2-9-3 J Fanning 87 2 (7) 79 CANTERBURY BELL (21) W Haggas 2-9-0 T Marquand 75 3 (5) LILA GIRL Michael Bell 2-9-0 A Atzeni - 4 (4) 7 MORE DIAMONDS (30) R Hughes 2-9-0 W Buick 81 5 (3) 4 SOCIAL CONTACT (23) R Varian 2-9-0 D Tudhope 92 6 (10) TROIS VALLEES J Tate 2-9-0 R L Moore - 7 (6) CENTRALLIA R Beckett 2-8-12 R Hornby - 8 (8) SCOTCH MIST Miss J Feilden 2-8-12 D Hogan - 9 (1) 8 YOU’RE ON MUTE (25) C Wall 2-8-12 J Mitchell 55 10 (9) CRAFTY MISTRESS E Dunlop 2-8-10 K Shoemark - 2020: Entwine 2 9 0, Pat Cosgrave 4/1 (Jim Boyle), 8 ran.

ISEIR IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 39 Stamina will be at a premium in the British EBF Future Stayers nursery Handicap, especially with the rain. that will suit Wind Your neck in (3.15 newmarket), who has looked a strong stayer over Salisbury’s stiff mile on his last two starts, and is sure to be suited by the longer trip here. He’s also more likely to cope with soft ground than market rival Educator and showed improved form when winning by a wide margin when tackling a testing surface there last time. i wasn’t as impressed by Bashkirova as some when she won at newcastle last time, with that race setting up nicely for her, making me think she will be vulnerable now handicapping in the Fillies’ Handicap. Being by Pivotal, it will be posited that she is likely to improve for soft ground, but the notion that Pivotal’s progeny fare better in the mud is not backed up by some very robust stats. Pivotal himself wanted quick ground, but his progeny seem to have no generic preference, and they need to be treated as individuals. in the hope that the unbeaten Haggas filly is overbet, i am keen to back random Harvest (3.50 newmarket – nap) against her. Heavy Ed Walker’s filly won on heavy ground on her only start last year and shaped as if better for the run when third on her belated return at Kempton recently. She’s clearly had her issues, REAP REWARDS WITH RANDOM HARVEST but remains the type to progress well. She hails from the family of top-notch milers Barathea and Gossamer, and her dam was a multiple winner for Luca Cumani. the meeting closes with the newmarketracecourses.co.uk nursery Handicap, and there aren’t many who look especially well treated. One who could be, however, is Ralph Beckett’s convection (5.00 newmarket), who was getting the hang of things late on at Kempton last time. She’s a daughter of Oasis Dream out of a sister to Falmouth Stakes winner timepiece, and half-sister to musidora winner Passage of time, herself the dam of Brigadier Gerard and York Stakes winner time test. i’d be surprised if an opening mark of 68 proved anywhere near her limit.

ISEIR ■ GAA TIME TMO GALWAY football captain Shane Walsh has called for the introduction of a Televison Match Official in light of the injury he suffered in this year’s Connacht final. Having been influential in scoring one goal and setting up another as Galway marched into a five-point lead against Mayo, an off-the-ball incident led to the player receiving a pain-killing injection at halftime and his contribution was severely diminished in the second half as his side slumped to a six-point defeat. Walsh explained yesterday he “cracked a bone” in his shoulder and was left with torn ligaments and heavy bruising, resulting in eight weeks on the sidelines. Galway manager Pádraic Joyce was left fuming over the incident and with referee Conor Lane having not witnessed it and video evidence proving inconclusive, there was no punishment handed out. “I’d probably be one who would be in favour of a TMO coming into GAA because there is an awful lot of stuff like that going on,” said Walsh, speaking in his role as a John West Féile ambassador. “For me, it’s very frustrating. Your Championship game is taken away from you in a couple of seconds. In fairness, if it happens on the ball, you’re unlucky and it happens. But it wasn’t on the ball. “When I put my hand across as he was running out, he was the one who initiated the grabbing of me and bringing me to the ground. “It happened so quickly and I was tired at the time. I was after running for the second goal. JOINING: Cian O’Neill will be part of Joyce’s coaching set-up off the ball incidents must be tackled FOR A ■■Pat NOLAN “There needs to be more done because there are linesmen there. Refs need support in games. It’s very hard. The game is moving on so quickly. “There is all this structure talk and rule changes but refs have to deal with all of that, keep the flow of the game and then watching what else is going on around them. “It’s difficult for them. I think more help is needed. They just have two eyes.” Walsh says that he never gets too perturbed about verbal sledging from opponents but he’s irked by off the ball incidents. “It’s happening all the time. On the ball it’s more obvious whereas off the ball stuff is hard to spot. “But you need to cut that out as well because young kids, they see that now and they replicate everything. Simulating “You see under-8s and 9s in my own club and they’d nearly be simulating diving because they see soccer players on TV at it. “A case of two players going for a ball and rolling on the ground if they don’t win it. Holding their face, nearly. I’m shocked. “Players have to be looked after. It’s all about player welfare. The GAA has to be doing their best to make sure the players are looked after. “They are the ones taking to the pitch. You want the best ones doing that.” Walsh added that he wasn’t going “cry over spilt milk” with regard to the video evidence being inconclusive, which meant that the CCCC could propose a suspension. “My job is to represent Galway and I’m enjoying that and it’s just a case of the way that happened and the way the cameras were, I don’t know, like I’ve seen it back a LET’S BACK B FOR THE GREATER GOOD SHANE WALSH would like Special Congress to back Proposal B (League as Championship) for the greater good. He said: “The stronger teams are fine, they wouldn’t care if the Championship doesn’t change. “The teams on the other side of the spectrum, who have couple of times but I’d have a good recollection of what happened with it but that’d be one word against another, so it wouldn’t stand up in court as they say.” Walsh’s injury was particularly disheartening, as he was in such a rich vein of form and he explained how that his game had come together nicely after the Connacht semi-final win over Roscommon. ■■Pat NOLAN the minimal amount of games each year, that’s where Proposal B would be a benefit to them. It’s more games, and more games against your peers as such. Option “Initially you have the option of winning an All-Ireland and if that’s taken away, you still have something to play for. “It’s important that the GAA make that worthwhile as well because there’s no point in running it off and then being “I felt I was really getting into my groove and obviously that was probably the most frustrating thing. Impeded “Fair enough, these things happen but the fact it completely impeded me for the rest of the game it’s very hard because then our chance is gone and for me, even if we had won that game, I wouldn’t have been back for the like, ‘Oh, we’ll just fix that game there for the sake of it’. He continued: “A couple of years ago, our last league game and our first Championship game had 11 weeks of a gap, which is an eternity. “If you could fill that up with four or five games in those 10 or 11 weeks, why wouldn’t you do that? “If it works, great, then we’ll proceed with it, if not, we’ll look to change it again.” Elsewhere, he welcomed the addition of former Kildare manager Cian O’Neill to IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 41 MAN OF THE (JOHN) WEST: Galway footballer and John West Féile Ambassador Shane Walsh, at the launch of John West Féile, 2021 at Croke Park. Celebrations for John West Féile’s 50th anniversary are taking place at Croke Park and Thurles over Halloween semi-final. “I’m one of those footballers that probably would be playing the game pretty clean in the sense that all you’re thinking of is getting the ball and trying to work it to your team-mates to kick a score and helping out at the back then to not concede a score. “That’s probably as simple a way of putting it, in my head. of how football should be played.” Pádraic Joyce’s coaching team for 2022. “It’s great. He worked with Kerry back in 2014, was with Liam Sheedy in 2010, with Kildare obviously, the Newbridge or Nowhere fiasco, then he’s been with Cork obviously. Experience “So huge experience staying the game right up until now, so I’m sure he’ll bring huge knowledge to the set up in relation to the different environments he’s been in, and how best to work that.” BLOW: Eoin Morgan eoin’s windies defeat agony ■■Jeremy CROSS EOIN Morgan has revealed he spent months coming to terms with England’s stunning defeat to West Indies in the last T20 World Cup final. And the England captain wants to use the pain of that crushing loss to drive him to go one better this time, and conquer the world again in the white-ball game. Morgan and his teammates were left shattered and broken in 2016 when Carlos Brathwaite smashed 24 runs off the final over, including four consecutive sixes, to see the Windies snatch victory in Kolkata. But leading England to World Cup glory in the 50-over format at Lord’s in 2019 helped make amends. Thought England begin their Super 12 campaign against the Windies in Dubai on Saturday and Morgan said: “I probably thought about what happened for about six or seven months afterwards, to try to understand it. “It was one of the most incredible sporting events you’ll ever watch. “It’s not something that you can just let run off your back, it’s something that you need to understand and learn from. “For a guy to come in and hit four consecutive sixes to win the game for his team is just an incredible feat within itself, that’s the way I’ve understood it. “It’s never been done before. There are always cornerstones of motivation to try and drive success, and they normally stem from failure.” Meanwhile, Ireland continue their ICC Men’s T20 World Cup campaign today with a clash against Sri Lanka, starting 3pm. Head Coach Graham Ford and captain Andrew Balbirnie have a full squad to pick fro. Ford said: “It will be a huge game for us, but I think it will be a really exciting challenge — we’ll focus on going out and really enjoying this opportunity.”

42 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 Djokovic puts defence of Oz title in doubt NOVAK DJOKOVIC has threatened to pull out of the Australian Open in January after officials insisted that unvaccinated players are unlikely to be allowed into the country. The nine times Australian Open champion has said he is prepared to miss out on the chance of defending his Melbourne title and a record-breaking 21st Grand Slam win because he refuses to release his vaccination status. Djokovic said: “Things being as they are, I still don’t know if I will go to Melbourne. “I will not reveal my status, whether I have been vaccinated or not. It is a private matter and an inappropriate inquiry. Judge “People go too far these days in taking the liberty to ask questions and judge a person. Whatever you say ‘Yes, no, maybe, I am thinking about it’, they will take advantage.” The state of Victoria, scheduled to host the first Grand Slam of 2022, has introduced a vaccination mandate for professional athletes as it battles a resurgence of Covid-19 cases. Premier Daniel Andrews said: “I don’t think an unvaccinated tennis player is going to get a visa to come into ■■Don MARRINAN this country and if they did, they’d probably have to quarantine for a couple of weeks. “The virus doesn’t care what your ranking is, or how many Grand Slams you’ve won. It’s completely irrelevant. “You need to be vaccinated to keep yourself safe and to keep others safe.” Djokovic this summer said he hoped vaccination would not be made mandatory for players, insisting it should come down to freedom of choice. Charity The world No1 was forced to apologise after staging a charity event in Serbia in 2020 with no social-distancing measures, after which several players, including Djokovic, tested positive. Australian prime minister Scott Morrison announced on Friday that international travel to and from the country would resume from November 1 for citizens and permanent residents, but emphasised “no decision to allow other visa-holders” had yet been made. Last week Andy Murray said players should get vaccinated, insisting: “I support vaccination. “I hope more players get it done.” ■ SOCCER second-half showing at WIN REALLY ISEIR FIRM STANCE: Novak Djokovic will not bend for the new rules Galway stall on naming manager ■■from BACK PAGE Championships marginalised, along with the provincial councils themselves, reaching the 60 per cent threshold for it to be passed will still be quite the challenge. When top table votes and the sizeable overseas delegation are factored in it will be particularly difficult. Meanwhile, confusion reigns as to who the next Galway senior hurling manager will be. Reports emerged early yesterday that Davy Fitzgerald had got the nod to succeed Shane O’Neill but he had not been appointed as of late last night. Stocked Also, suggestions that he has lined up a backroom team heavily stocked with fellow Clare men are believed to be wide of the mark. Brian Hanley and Jeffrey Lynskey are also in the shake-up.

ISEIR pairc ui chaoimh was key to all-ireland win IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 43 tIppeD sCALes IF there was one place Karl Lynch admits turnaround in Munster O'KANE GAA fans could take a time machine back to from the past season, it would surely be the Limerick dressing room at half-time in the Munster final. It was the one time in the 2021 Championship that John Kiely’s now three-time All- Ireland champions were truly rattled. Liam Sheedy was slapping his players on the back in the way into the changing rooms at half-time in Pairc Ui Chaoimh. The ground was buzzing. Could Limerick muster a response? Cian Lynch was wondering, himself. A series of long puckouts had caught Limerick cold, with John O’Dwyer and Jake Morris plundering goals. Limerick had shipped a whopping 2-16 in the first half. Were Limerick succumbing to the pressure again in their pursuit of the county’s first ever back-to back All-Ireland titles, having missed out in 2019 with the semi-final defeat by Kilkenny. Outscore All those questions and more, were answered emphatically in the second half, and long before the final whistle. In the third quarter Limerick would outscore Tipp by 1-10 to 0-1, and the second half scoreline was Limerick, 1-17, Tipperary 1-5, with the final tally 2-29 (35) to 3-21 (30). There were only five points in it at the end, but it felt a lot more convincing than that. It was one of the final nails in the coffin of an aging Tipperary side. Coming through that moment when they were truly rattled was not only a huge psychological boost to Limerick but a warning shot to anyone coming for their All- Ireland crown. reports karl.okane@thestar.ie That Limerick could pulverise you in the blink of an eye, so the game is never over against them. “I suppose Tipperary blitzed us really in the first half,” says Lynch. “We went in at halftime asking ourselves, ‘How can we come back from this?’ Bounce “But we just put our heads down. Thankfully things went our way and we were able to get the few breaks, got a goal early after half-time.

We were able to drive on and push on again. “Tipperary are an unreal outfit and we’ve had battles down through the years and there is never much between us. We know each other fairly well, so it was just nice to be able to get a result that day for ourselves.” AB MAJOR BLOW FOR RAFA eVertON have been hit by a major injury blow with Abdoulaye Doucoure suffering a broken foot. the midfielder has a fractured metatarsal which could keep him out for up to two months.

44 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 Referees are not listening says Bradley STEPHEN BRADLEY has lashed out at League of Ireland referees — saying all but a handful refuse to communicate with managers. Bradley (below) was fuming after centreback Roberto Lopes was red-carded shortly before half-time in Monday night’s 1-1 draw with Bohemians. The 10-man Hoops had to battle back to earn the point — and it leaves them needing just six from their remaining five games to retain their Premier Division crown. However, it was the performance of referee Neil Doyle that dominated his postmatch thoughts. Lopes was the NINTH player to see red in the last 10 meetings between the — with Doyle dishing out three of those dismissals. Fence Asked if Rovers could appeal the decision, Bradley replied: “I’m not sure. Sure, you might as well talk to that fence.” As it happens, mistaken identity is the only grounds for appealing a red card — even if a manager feels his player has been sent off in the wrong, as many observers felt about the Lopes incident. “It was a shocking decision. I know I said it, but Jesus Christ,” continued Bradley. “Unbelievable decision. It really is. Honestly. Incredible.” The incident between CONTROVERSY: Roberto Lopes is sent off on Monday by Neil Doyle ■■Mark McCADDEN Lopes and Bohemians striker Promise Omochere looked to be 50/50, grabbing onto each other, before Omochere fell on the edge of the area. Bradley was asked if he spoke with the referee afterwards, but replied: “He has no interest in listening. “That’s the problem in this league. Managers have said it all year, I’ve stayed quiet. “That’s the problem. “There are one or two who will listen and have a conversation with you. “And they wonder why people are giving out.” He added: “We’ve all had decisions go against us throughout the year and you just bite your lip and get on with it. You hope they even themselves out. “But games like that, he makes a decision like that, it’s not good enough and it’s not acceptable. “Try to speak to him? You’re joking me. It’s incredible. They wonder why people are speaking about them. Unbelievable. “Like I said, there are a couple. There are two who are really, really good in terms of speaking to you. “Whether they get them right or wrong, they’ll speak to you and you take that on the chin. “But when they don’t even speak to you and, ‘Get out of my face, you’ll be sent off’... have a conversation.” hOOPS GET BARRED ■■Mark McCADDEN HOSTILITIES between Bohemians and ■Shamrock Rovers were cranked up last night when the Dalymount Park side announced they would bar away fans from next month’s derby in Phibsborough.

Asked for his thoughts on Friday’s semi-final opponents, he said: “The exception would have been how they maybe had a mediocre season throughout the League campaign. “But the rule is that they’re a really good team and they’re showing that now kind of when they’re coming to the business end. Perfect “A cup semi is perfect for them because it’s giving them all an opportunity to get to another cup final and maybe salvage a season. “Ultimately look if you went through their one-to-11 when they play us on Friday, I think any neutral would say that’s one of the strongest teams in the league and that’s just the bottom line. “They’ll be at it on Friday, as I said it’s a Cup semi-final and a good platform for them all to showcase themselves and try to get to a cup final. “We’re not training this week wondering what type of Dundalk is going to turn up. “We know what type of Dundalk is going to turn up, it’s going to be a really good Dundalk with all their really good individuals ready to rock — and that’s what we’re preparing for. “That’s what is going to come on Friday, as you’ve seen in their recent league form a s we l l, beating FlASheS OF FORM: dundalk celebrating against Rovers recently maybe the champions elect, the league leaders, only a couple of weeks ago. “They’re capable of that and you’re not surprised when they get good results. “Ultimately you only go back into the summer when it’s big sort of one-off occasions, from the second half onwards against Vitesse Arnhem in Tallaght, more or less they absolutely destroyed them so that’s the level they can get to.” Battles Despite their contrasting form this year, the three battles between the two sides so far have produced a win each and a draw. Dundalk left Richmond Park in late May with a 2-0 win, but O’Donnell expects a different Lilywhites side this time around. “They totally sat in against us at Richmond and sat off the game massively, and sort of played in a tight sort of condensed shape and maybe done us on the counter,” he explained. “We would have had lots of the ball and I don’t expect to see the same Dundalk on Friday in that regard. “I think they’ll be more back to what you’d associate Dundalk with, pressing and getting after the game.” As for St Pat’s recent form, they have lost two of their last three league games — at home to Shamrock Rovers and away to Derry City. However, O’Donnell insisted: “Even though we’ve lost two of our last Forest win is Taylor made TWO stoppage-time goals from substitute Lyle Taylor gave Nottingham Forest a 2-1 win to extend Bristol City’s Ashton Gate nightmare. The hosts have not won at home since January, but looked set to lay the jinx after teenage midfielder Alex Scott had fired them in front on 39 minutes. On 90 minutes, Nathan Baker fouled Djed Spence in the box and Taylor made no mistake from the spot, sending Dan Bentley the wrong way. ■ChampionShip Round-up Seconds later Bentley parried a shot from Joe Lolley and Taylor pounced on the rebound to steal all three points.

The on-song striker now has eight goals in his past 10 second-tier outings, as the Cherries stretched their unbeaten league start to 13 games. Stoke shot-stopper Adam Davies inexplicably spilled Ryan Christie’s shot six minutes into the second half, and Solanke pounced to score from point-blank range. Crossbar The former Chelsea graduate also rattled the crossbar with a thunderous drive, to thrill the 549 Cherries fans who had made the long journey from the south coast to Staffordshire.

But the breakthrough came as the Cherries forced the pace early in the second half. Jordan Thompson then came within a whisker of restoring parity, but his thunderous shot struck the right post. Centre-back Harry Souttar headed wide from Mario Vrancic’s cross as Stoke tried to find a way back, before substitute Tyrese Campbell rifled a shot straight at Ireland goalkeeper Mark Travers.

And after a day off yesterday, he returns to work intent on preparing his struggling side for this weekend’s trip to crystal Palace, with the Magpies still searching for their first win of the season. Bruce accepts he has no long-term future at St James’ Park.

Former Bournemouth boss eddie Howe heads the betting to become the Geordies’ new boss — but he is not the only serious contender. Newcastle are also understood to be in talks with Paulo Fonsenca and Lucien Favre, while former england team-mates rangers’ boss Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard remain in the running. Howe turned down the celtic job in the summer but has told friends he would be interested in taking over at St James’ Park if and when the job become vacant. women’s world cup qualifier ireland v sweden tallaght stadium, tomorrow 7pm IreLANd striker Leanne Kiernan says her dad encouraged her to move to Liverpool last summer. However, she won’t be sending a framed jersey — with the iconic No.9 on the back — home to her family in Bailieborough, Co Cavan, as a thank you. That’s because the Kiernans are all huge Manchester United fans! The 22-year-old completed her move to the Women’s Championship side in June, after her contract with West Ham expired a month earlier. And she has hit the ground running, scoring four goals in her last three games ahead of her return to the Irish camp this week. With that kind of goalscoring ability, could she have stayed in the Women’s Super League? “Of course my agent was in and out but honestly when Liverpool came up, and obviously Beardy (Matt Beard) knows me very well (from their time together with the Hammers), we had a Zoom call with him,” she said. Fresh “I had a few more options on the side but my dad said straightaway, ‘Listen Leanne, I have a really good feeling about this and I think it’s a really good move for you’. “I felt it myself but sometimes it’s quite handy when I have an opinion that I really respect, and that’s the case with dad and I took it. So it worked out and I was happy-going. I needed a fresh start away from West Ham.” How has the move gone down at home? “I have a lot of people who can’t even watch me play with Liverpool,” she laughed. “They are all big United fans at home, even myself, I am a low-key United fan, which I don’t put out there that often. “They said, ‘Ah Leanne, we are very happy for you, but don’t dare come home with a jersey for us. You are with the wrong type of Reds!’” Kiernan felt she needed a fresh start after an injury-hit Hammers spell. A painful bout of shin-splints Mark McCADDEN reports mark.mccadden@thestar.ie effectively had her off her feet for six months. “I got injured at the very, very start of last season, the first game, with my shin splints and it is not something that just goes away overnight,” said the 22-year-old. “So I played for maybe three or four months in agony, and then I just put the hat in and said I couldn’t do it anymore. So I took six months off completely, went home for a few weeks. “I am not a massive gym head and when you are shoved into the gym every day, looking at yourself in the mirror, there are only so many songs that you can listen to on the speakers. “But it worked out for the best.” She added: “The pains in my shin bones were absolute agony and I am quite athletic and like to run, and when you can’t run, it takes a lot from my game. “I couldn’t walk.

Nobody is benefitting from this.” Kiernan revealed that she initially declined the No.9 shirt when it was offered during the summer. Silly “I told him (Beard) I am not sure I want it, do you not have a bigger number, a 33 or something,” she said. “I am quite easy-going, laid-back, like to be in the background and show what I am about. He told me to think about it. “I mentioned it to my Dad and he said, ‘Are you silly? You got offered the No.9 9 and you are not taking it? Take it, will you’. “It was a nice treat getting the No.9. It’s great that the coach believes in me like that, giving me that shirt, shows he has faith in me.” Kiernan aims to impress another man- ager this week. She is with the Ireland squad ahead of tomorrow’s World Cup qualification opener against Sweden. All 4,000 tickets available for the Tallaght Stadium clash (7pm) are sold out. The match falls just hours short of the return to full capacity at outdoor sporting events. Asked for her motivation ahead of the Sweden and Finland games, she replied: “To be the best player I can be for my teammates around me. “Just do as well as I can and be positive coming into the game. It’s a great opportunity for us to do very well in front of a full Tallaght. “We’re not silly, we’re aware of where they (Sweden) stand, in the top two in the world. Listen, you want to play the best teams. You learn a lot from playing the best teams. “We know what we’re about and we’ll have a game plan going in there, and who knows? “When you have 4,000 Irish fans screaming at you at the game, it always helps, doesn’t it?” KATIE SUPPORTS AWARENESS ■■Mark MCCADDEN IreLANd captain Katie Mccabe and her teammates are helping raise awareness of breast cancer this week — ahead of their world cup qualifiers against Sweden and Finland. For the second year in a row, the players have linked up with Breast cancer Ireland to encourage more women to be aware of breast cancer, as 30 percent of those between the ages of 20-50 will be diagnosed with it. Ahead of tomorrow’s game, the players and backroom staff will wear Breast cancer Ireland face-masks. Duty these can be purchased on breastcancerireland.com to help fund research. Mccabe (inset) said: “As much as we are focusing on starting our world cup qualifying campaign in the best possible way, we feel it is our duty to promote awareness in breast cancer. “we are fully aware of our responsibility as role models for young women and this is something that directly affects them, so we need to be educated about it and know how to tackle breast cancer.”

Over three decades later and he was driving Ferencvaros mad. The Aussie refuses to engage reverse and his flat-out approach finally released their Group G handbrake. Kyogo’s brilliant opener had the stamp of Postecoglou all over it and the manager could even afford for Callum McGregor to have a subsequent penalty saved.

However, in between those moments, Celtic settled, probed and displayed some glimpses of intent themselves. Jota forced a couple of saves from keeper Denes Dibusz.

The excellent Adam Montgomery and Jota passed their way out of potential trouble before the Portuguese had a difficult pass on to Kyogo and the execution was magnificent. Touch It was drilled 50 yards into the striker’s run and his cushioned first touch was equally brilliant. The Japanese Bhoy’s composed instep finish into the near post was textbook. The visitors should have been broken five minutes later when Celtic were awarded a penalty. Henry Wingo tumbled Montgomery in the box and Danish referee Jakob Kehlet had no hesitation in pointing to the spot. McGregor’s strike was solid, but Dibusz guessed correctly and it was a good height for him to beat clear. Grabbing the two-goal cushion would have been priceless at that stage, but it would come in the end. It could have been a tense last 20 minutes, but, in truth, Celtic had more sightings to finish it before they actually did. Jota stepped inside and then failed to really catch the shot which rolled into Dibusz’s arms. Carter-Vickers just missed a Turnbull corner and sub Giorgos Giakoumakis took a Kyogo cross on his chest before volleying over. But, with nine minutes to go, finally that comfort. McGregor stole possession and fed Jota in the box who crossed for Turnbull.

The 21-year-old Chelsea star lifted the lid on his break-in hell yesterday. James was playing in a 1-0 win over Zenit St Petersburg last month when his €3m Surrey home was broken into. The gang of five masked men also made off with his Euro 2020 runnerup and Super Cup winner’s medals. The heartbroken England full-back, who branded the culprits “cowardly”, said: “There’s no lead from the police or anyone. It’s obviously tough to take, someone breaking in and taking such valuable items. “But there’s nothing I can really do. I’m going to just have to take it and move on. The medals would mean a lot to any player. To win a trophy is hard.” Bounce James expects to be in the team to face Malmo tonight as the holders look to bounce back from defeat by Juventus in the competition. He said: “Nothing changes. It happened. It may well happen again. No-one knows. “It doesn’t affect how I prepare for the game. I still have the same routine, the same mindset.” James wants to put the affair behind him as Thomas Tuchel’s (above) men return to Champions League action. Chelsea will have to improve if they want to defend their title as they have not been at their best recently. But James (below) insists their best is yet to come as players grow into the campaign. He said: “The last few games haven’t been of the highest level from us. But there’s still a long way to go this season. Form “Once we start winning and finding form and picking up momentum I believe our performances will get better.” Despite his young age James has already played more than 150 senior games in his budding career. And he admits he and some of his teammates are feeling the strain after going all the way last season and then playing in the Euros.

50 IRISH DAILY STAR, Wednesday, October 20, 2021 ■ SOCCER Cole joins in as City Phil boots MANCHESTER City’s conveyor belt of talent just keeps rolling them out. Not only do they have the next Kevin De Bruyne in Phil Foden, they also have the next Foden in Cole Palmer. Foden dazzled on a night when the build-up had been about De Bruyne’s first club game in his homeland since 2012. Foden operated through the middle as a No 9 and crowned his fine all-round performance with a superb assist for Joao Cancelo’s opener. He settled the debate over whether City need another striker and Bruges could not lay a glove on him. Foden fizzed about all over the pitch, collecting ball from deep-lying positions to launch attack after attack. City have another star in the making in Palmer and he scored his first Champions League goal within two-and-a-half minutes of coming on to make it two in his last three appearances. The 19-year-old Palmer is a special talent and the attacking midfielder played the last few minutes of Saturday’s win over Burnley at the Etihad before popping over the road to score a WoW JoAo: Cancelo celebrates after scoring for City by david anderSon club brugge. safadfda 1 man city......

There was so much to please Pep Guardiola and Riyad Mahrez scored twice to take his tally to seven goals in his last seven games in the competition. Full-backs Canelo and Kyle Walker also netted to show this is a City side bristling with goals. Routine This win was as routine as they come and City barely broke sweat to beat the Belgian champions in the Jay Breydel Stadium. They twice had the ball in the ball in the back of the Bruges’ net but Jack Grealish’s effort was ruled out because he shoved over Clinton Mata and Rodri’s was disallowed for offside. City’s pressure was unrelenting and Foden fired into the side netting and De Bruyne shot straight at former Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet from a great position when he should have done better.

The home fans dis- played an ugly side by loudly booing both sets of players when they took the knee before kick-off and bottles were thrown at Cancelo as he celebrated his goal. City added a second two minutes before halftime when Stanley Nsoki bundled over Mahrez in the box for a penalty. Mahrez slotted the spot-kick into the bottom corner, and City were home and hosed. They kept pressing and Mahrez had a shot saved by Mignolet from Foden’s pass. It was now just a question of how many City could be bothered scoring and they bagged a third on 53 minutes. De Bruyne, who had been quiet up until this moment, played an incisive ball down the right channel for Walker to slot home. Palmer produced a clinical finish to make it four from Raheem Sterling’s pass before Bruges skipper Hans Vanaken salvaged some pride for the home side in front of their passionate fans by pulling one back.

This was a sensational Champions League game won in dramatic fashion. It had everything. Brilliant goals, bad defending, a red card and, in true modern football fashion, some VAR drama. Jurgen Klopp’s men somehow left Madrid with a huge three points to put themselves in pole position in Group B, but they did it the hard way after blowing a two-goal lead and then surviving a late penalty shout for Atletico. Double Salah had scored the first, Naby Keita the second before a double from Antoine Griezmann got the hosts level. But when he saw red in the second half, the game swung again.

Liverpool returned to the stadium where they last lifted the European Cup in 2019. And they started like a side out to show they could go all the way to win it for the seventh time. They were in front after just eight minutes, Salah skipping past three Madrid players as he cut inside before striking from the edge of the area and into the bottom corner.
