The Dubliner, 70, was on Zoe Ball’s Radio 2 Breakfast Show to chat about his new five-track EP Out Of The Back Of Boomtown. He called out the presenter for playing the last few seconds of And I Do which includes the apparently offensive line of “getting p****d”. “That is an edit of that,” Ball said after playing the final moments of the song adding, “because it’s the BBC and it’s early in the morning and we couldn’t play the full version”.

Suspicious activity prompted fresh body hunt by Paul Healy and JoHn Hand Chief Reporter A MAN seen dragging something from the boot of a car into the woods 23 years ago has led to the latest search for murdered Deirdre Jacob. The hunt at a three-acre woodland site in Co Kildare stems from the sighting which is alleged to have occurred on the evening of the young woman’s disappearance on July 28, 1998. Gardai have spoken to a witness who claims he saw a man dragging something from the open boot of a car into the woods at “Brewel East” near Taggartstown on that date. It is understood the man previously came forward with that information years ago – and he has since been interviewed again in recent times in connection with what he saw. The man’s claims have now formed the basis for what will now be a huge three-week Garda search at the site, disaPPeared JoJo Dullard which is located around 15km from Newbridge, where Ms Jacob was last seen. It is understood that officers wanted to search the site last year, but due to Covid restrictions, had to wait until this week, along with approval for funding from Garda Headquarters. Notorious rapist Larry Murphy, who lived close to the area at the time, remains the chief suspect in Deirdre’s disappearance – and a file is currently with the Director of Public Prosecutions in relation to this case. Officers now suspect that Murphy, who was from nearby Baltinglass, may have abducted the 18-year-old student and taken her to the remote site and buried her. A former cellmate said that the rapist “confessed” to him about the murder of Deirdre while in prison. Murphy, 55, who is now living in the UK, has always denied any involvement in the teenager’s disappearance. Officers suspect that several other unexplained murders which occurred within a similar time period, could also be connected to the site. Yesterday, Inspector John Fitzgerald, who is overseeing the search, said they are “mindful” of particular cases, such as the disappearance of 21-year-old JoJo Dullard and believe it is possible that her remains could also be located there. It is not far away from Moone, Co Kildare, where she was last seen on November 9, 1995. But he said: “There’s no link at this stage.” JoJo’s sister Kathleen Bergin revealed how she was informed by gardai of the fresh search but it was on foot of information relating to Deirdre. She said she is praying that it may bring closure to the Jacob family but also hopes that any new information may pave the way to solving the mystery behind JoJo’s disappearance. Kathleen told the Irish Mirror: “We’re praying hard that they find answers for Deirdre’s family. “And you’ll never know, it might just open up the door for some of the other investigations.

Our thoughts now are with Deirdre’s family and friends – we’re all praying that they get some answers after all of this time. “And if they do find something, please God, you never know because it’s in that area [near where JoJo disappeared].” Kathleen explained how it can be difficult to not get her hopes up when a development like this happens, but she is also managing her expectations. She added: “You’ll always be a little bit hopeful because of the location but we have to be realistic too because there’s been searches in the past and nothing came of them. But because of where it is, you can’t help but think that we might just be lucky.” It is understood between 10 to 15 gardai a day are to finely comb the area for any sign of evidence. It is expected that some trees may need to be cut back to assist the search, and ground penetration may be required. An incident room has also been established on the site for the duration of the search, which officially began yesterday. Insp Fitzgerald said: “There was unusual overgrown Conditions are challenging The area has been under review for some time DMEEIR activity in or around the time Deirdre went missing and based on that it felt prudent to commence a thorough search of the area.” The site is private land and has been closed off on foot of a search warrant which was obtained by the High Court. Insp Fitzgerald added: “The area has been under review for some time. We carried out a cursory search initially some time ago. “The recommendation was to commence a search in October to give us the best chance to have success, based on the fact it is thick woodland, there’s a lot of undergrowth there and this time of year gives us the best opportunity to gather any evidence that may be here. “We were reliant on the advice from the forensic archeologist in terms of the growth in the area but also there’s wildlife considerations as well and October was identified as the appropriate moment insp fitzgerald co kildare, yesterday suspect Larry Murphy base Control room hopeful Insp Fitzgerald TUESDAY 12.10.2021 IRISH DAILY MIRROR 5 tragic Deirdre Jacob – easier to dig up, not as thick undergrowth, it’s obviously autumn so it should be easier to get through it.” Eight women disappeared between 1993 and 1998 in areas around the borders of Leinster. Former detective sergeant Alan Bailey, who was part of the cold case review of both disappearances, said yesterday he still believes they were victims of the same person. He added: “I do believe that Deirdre and JoJo were both in the wrong place at the wrong time. They just happened to be in an area where a predator was operating.” To date, investigating gardai have followed more than 3,000 separate lines of inquiry – but the case has circled back to prime suspect Murphy. He was released in 2010 having served 10 years of a 15-year sentence for kidnapping, raping and attempting to murder a young woman in the Wicklow Mountains in 2000. news@irishmirror.ie Astronomy classes out of this world ASTrOnOMY Ireland is running weekly classes giving people an insight into the solar system.

At a sentence hearing yesterday, Detective Sergeant Michael Reidy told prosecuting counsel Bernard Condon SC that in 2017 Lynch lived with his brother at Pallaskenry. At about 4.20pm on the day of the murder Gerard Lynch entered a shop across the street from his home “roaring for help” with blood on his hands. When locals followed him back into his family home, they discovered the body of Willie Lynch at the top of the stairs. Gerard Lynch left the house, stole Court told of horror as man, 34, sentenced to life for stab murder three bottles of wine from a nearby shop and went to a park. He was arrested later the same day when he went to the home of another man who restrained him until gardai arrived. Det Sgt Reidy said Lynch had taken a combination of alcohol and drugs. There was, he added, an “innocuous altercation” between the brothers earlier that day before the fatal stabbing. Assistant State Pathologist Dr Margaret Bolster discovered four stab wounds. The fatal wound entered the ribs and damaged the thorax. Death would have been instantaneous, she wrote in a report submitted for the hearing. During interviews with gardai, Gerard Lynch admitted to stabbing his brother and told officers where to find the bread knife that he had used. He told gardai: “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it.” Lynch has 36 previous convictions, mostly at District Court level. He was jailed for three years in 2007 for arson for setting a hay barn on fire. His barrister Mark Nicholas SC described the case as “absolutely tragic” and said his client was deeply sorry for what he had done. He had penned a letter to the court in which he apologised to his family and in particular to his mother. In the letter, Lynch said that if he behind bars Gerard Lynch. Inset, at court in 2018 could turn back time he would and added: “I miss my brother very much.” Det Sgt Reidy agreed with Mr Nicholas that Lynch had been admitted to the psychiatric unit of Limerick University Hospital five times prior to the murder. He had a history of suicidal ideation and self-harm. He was diagnosed with ADHD which was complicated by his use of tablets, including Xanax, Det Sgt Reidy said. Mr Nicholas added that while his client faces a mandatory life sentence, under the Parole Act 2019, the parole board may take into consideration what was said during the hearing. Mr Justice Paul McDermott agreed to attach a transcript of the hearing to Lynch’s file. The judge expressed his sympathy to the Lynch family. He said he had “no option” but to impose the mandatory life sentence, which he backdated to 2017 when Lynch first went into custody. news@irishmirror.ie

10 IRISH DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 12.10.2021 COMMENT 1st Floor, Independent House, 27-32 Talbot Street Dublin 1 irishmirror.ie A Budget that’s on the money CONSIDERING what an ordeal the last year has been, today’s Budget will be a breath of fresh air. The news is largely positive, with increases for all sectors from pensioners to those on social welfare and even a new allowance for cancer sufferers. Much of this is based on the way the economy has roared back and is forecast to continue doing so. It is not so much growth as a release of pent-up demand, but it’s exactly what the country needs regardless. There are some negatives for taxpayers, of course. The fuel allowance hikes will not remotely cover the soaring cost of heating a home while motorists will be hit by a carbon tax. There is nothing to solve the housing crisis any time soon and if you’re a smoker, there will be 50c on a packet of cigarettes. Meanwhile, nurses will not be put off for long over their pay demands and they may not be the only ones. But all that is for the next few weeks and months. For the moment, we can be happy that things are looking up and the worst seems to be over. And that is reason enough to celebrate, whatever your political leanings. Families need some answers THE mysterious disappearance of Deirdre Jacob could be one step closer to being solved as a new search is under way. A site in Co Kildare will be combed for evidence over the next three weeks and it will bring hope to her family. And there are expectations that the search will also uncover information about JoJo Dullard’s disappearance too in what would be a monumental find. It’s a wonder why it has taken 23 years for this search to occur but at least it is being done and there is a chance for answers. Their loved ones deserve justice. A Qat above..

Mr Justice Scoffield delivered the declaration at Belfast High Court after Sean Napier brought judicial review proceedings into the lawfulness of the DUP move. The case centred around leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson’s announcement last month that his party would disengage with the North South Ministerial Council meetings as part of their campaign of opposition to the protocol. Mr Justice Scoffield said wording of the declaration had been agreed by legal counsel for both the applicant and the respondents. Mr Justice Scoffield said: “The statutory scheme, consistent with the Good Friday Agreement, is set up to ensure an appropriate minister must participate, or at least nominate some other minister to participate in their free Move Jeffrey Donaldson place.

A Central Criminal Court jury rejected Mark Whelan’s defence that he was psychotic through intoxication and did not know the nature and quality of his acts, didn’t know they were wrong and couldn’t prevent himself from carrying them out. They took just two hours to return their unanimous verdict and gasps were heard in the court. Whelan, 48, of Castlecurragh Heath, Mulhuddart, Dublin 15, had denied murdering 22-year-old Noel Whelan at his home on March 30, 2019. The accused is the father of the late Mr Whelan’s partner, who was pregnant at the time he was killed. On Friday Ms Justice Tara Burns told the jury there was “no issue” as to whether or not Mark Whelan killed Noel. It was up to the jury to decide whether or not the appropriate verdict was that Whelan was guilty or not of murder, or guilty of manslaughter. After reviewing differing expert I was satisfied Whelan was voluntarily intoxicated at the time psychiatric evidence, the judge told the jury the evidence in the case did not meet the threshold for Whelan to be found “guilty but with diminished responsibility”, or of being “not guilty by reason of insanity”. Last Wednesday Dr Francis Kelly told Michael Lynn SC, for the defence, that in his opinion the accused did not know the nature and quality of the act, did not know it was wrong and could not refrain from doing it. He added: “I was satisfied that at the material time of the offence Mr Whelan was voluntarily intoxicated with multiple substances – which included cocaine, cannabis and benzodiazepines “I felt he was psychotic at the material time, but I felt his psychosis was caused by intoxication.” But Prof Harry Kennedy, consultant forensic psychiatrist at the Central Mental Hospital, said he found no mental disorder present in Whelan.

DMEEIR irishmirror.ie 17 TUESDAY 12.10.2021 IRISH DAILY MIRROR john kierans The Beast from the East Time to give unvaccinated soccer stars the red card WHO in the name of God do some of our Irish international footballers think they are? This country has been to hell and back fighting the Covid pandemic and yet some of our players like Callum Robinson refuse to get vaccinated even though he had the virus twice. You kind of wonder what planet they live on. Are they living in their own little spoiled brat rich bubble, where they can do whatever they want, with little or no accountability and to hell with the consequences? The Irish manager Stephen Kenny, has a lot to answer for. He is the boss and he should have made it perfectly clear that any player who refuses to get vaccinated is not picked for the squad. By refusing to do so he showed how insecure he is, how he is afraid to upset his players, and he needs them more than they need him. Do you think any world-class manager like Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp would put up with this kind of player power and anti-vaccine Help residents & move on mica I don’t for the life of me know why the Government is messing about over the mica and pyrite scandal. Just make the scheme 100% redress and let’s get on with it. All the people affected in Donegal and Mayo did nothing wrong. Asking them to come up with 10% when they haven’t got it is ludicrous. Politicians had no bother finding €40billion to bail out the banks so there is no excuse for not helping out these people. I don’t agree with protestors blocking roads and bringing Dublin to a complete standstill on the M50. Any sane individual would support your cause. So don’t jeopardise that public goodwill by needlessly blocking roads. nonsense? No chance. Klopp publicly said anyone who refuses to get the jab is just like a drunk driver behind the wheel of a car. Whether you like it or not you are endangering other people’s lives. A lot of English Premier League footballers have refused to be jabbed because they fear it will affect their performance on the pitch. All nonsense. It was disclosed a few days ago only seven of the 20 Premier League clubs have more than 50% of their players vaccinated. Kenny’s decision to turn a blind eye is an insult to everyone who died from Covid in this country. This is a devastating disease for the elderly, vulnerable and people with underlying health conditions. Ask the families of anyone who died in the past 18 months and they would have taken your left arm to give their loved ones a vaccine at the early stages of the pandemic. It has been proven that the vaccine saves life, every minute of every day. There is no great conspiracy about them, any minor side effects are outweighed by the successful protection against the virus. Kenny should also look at the hospital numbers every day and he will discover that 70% of the people in hospital and intensive care have not been vaccinated. The manager of our national team and the FAI have a responsibility to our nation and should be leading by example. Instead Kenny tried to defend the indefensible – Robinson and the other players who did not take the vaccine – and then tried to criticise people who held Robinson to account. Do you think jabCallum Robinson the late great Jack Charlton would have put up with that nonsense? He would have told every player to take the jab and that would be the end of it. The IRFU confirmed its professional rugby staff is 99.2% vaccinated, an extraordinary number, and full credit to them. Those who aren’t won’t be playing. For whatever reason soccer players think they are different and can do whatever they like. Kenny does not deserve to be kept on as Irish manager for the way he has handled this whole dreadful Covid mess. If you are not vaccinated you should not play for Ireland. Far too many people I know and loved have died from this disease. ROSANNA’s class is out of this world.. Rosanna Davison, the former Miss World, is an inspiration to all of us. The poor woman suffered 15 miscarriages in her life and yet is now a proud and wonderful mother. Against all odds she now has three children – her daughter Sophie, carried by a surrogate in Kiev, Ukraine, and identical twin boys Hugo and Oscar who she gave i birth to last November. As she said herself, after all her pain and suffering, her dreams have finally come true and she can’t believe she has three kids. I have met Rosanna on a number of occasions over the years and she is a wonderful down to earth woman with no airs and graces. But then her dad Chris de Burgh and her mother Diane Davison are both very decent people. As the fella said, she didn’t lick the class up off the kitchen floor. What in God’s name is Dublin City Council thinking in letting one of the city’s most famous pubs, The Cobblestone, in Stoneybatter be demolished and replaced by a hotel? There should be a preservation order slapped on the building and that should be the end of the matter. A similar move must also be applied to Merchants Arch at the Halfpenny Bridge. We don’t need any more hotels in Dublin city centre, it is apartments we need. No matter what, we must protect the city’s heritage and culture. Chance for town to be a slicker city My home town Drogheda is the fastest-growing in the country. It has a population of more than 80,000 in the immediate surrounding area spanning a couple of miles into East Meath. Thousands of new homes are being built around the town on both sides of the River Boyne which traditionally divides Louth and Meath. So Drogheda is bigger than Waterford, Galway and Limerick and has no CEO or town clerk to run it. Instead it goes under the command of the CEO of Louth County Council based 20 miles up the road in Dundalk. Meath County Council also has its say in large parts of the town. Drogheda has applied for city status. There is absolutely no valid reason why it should not be given by the Government so it gets the proper local infrastructure and investment it deserves. That would not suit either Louth or Meath county councils so watch this space for the big battle ahead. Drogheda is not getting its fair share of the public purse per head of population. I flew back from Spain 6 to Ireland last week after a holiday and not one person at Dublin Airport asked to see my vaccine passport. It’s as if Covid never existed.

He doesn’t spend half his time moaning about things on air, he tackles the issues head-on.

Scientists have identified a trio of chemicals called microrNAs which are an early warning sign of the disease. Some 90% of those who had highly elevated levels of all three microrNAs developed Alzheimer’s within two years.

Comedian Jack Whitehall and parents Michael and Hilary share memories and offer tips on everything from fine dining to footwear. Jack, 33, and 81-year-old Michael’s overseas trips have kept us laughing for five years on Netflix show, Travels with my Father. These insights may make you think twice before spending too much time away with your loved ones... Fine Dining - egg I went with my family to a Michelin-starred restaurant, I won’t reveal in which country, but I picked up the menu and the first starter listed was Oeuf. OK, it was France. ‘Egg’. That’s what the dish was called: ‘Egg’. I’m going to need a bit more than that before forking out 30 quid on it. We looked closer. Beneath, in italics, it read: “Two eggs, one farm, three textures.” Who wrote this menu? Dr Seuss? My father called over the snooty waitress and asked for some more details. “The descriptions are ambiguous so the diner can go on a journey,” she explained. “I’m fine with a journey, darling,” he replied, perhaps a little too forcibly, “I just want to know the destination.” I guess he had a point. If you were going on a train you wouldn’t go to the ticket booth, hand over 300 quid and just say, “Surprise me.” And I’m not one of those people who likes to ask endless questions about the food. All I need to know is what I’m ordering. But in the case of ‘Egg’, I decided jungle look to take a punt. If for no other reason than Michael posing it might wind up my dad. ‘Egg’ arrived and in short shorts on holiday it was, as with all things gastronomical, utterly preposterous. Two eggs, some stuff smeared underneath one of them, and both of them covered in foam. doubles act I could see instantly why they were so Mum and son at Wimbledon coy in the first place. It looked like two poached eggs with a case of rabies. Which would have been a much clearer description for the menu; I wouldn’t order it but at least I’d know what my ‘destination’ was. While ‘Egg’ got my father bristling, it wasn’t until dessert that we encountered the straw that broke the camel’s back. My father has simple tastes when it comes to pudding. As a result, he ordered the deceptively straightforward ‘Strawberry’ and, no exaggeration, waited patiently for 30 minutes. My mother, as she always does in these situations, was trying to calm him down. Really the best way of dealing with Daddy is to treat him like a crisis that simply has to be calmly managed. “It’s fine, Michael, just relax, we’re on holiday, don’t make a scene.

It makes you immediately identifiable as a tourist. All the locals know how to spot the holidaymakers: they’re the ones who look as if their valuables have prolapsed out of them. The only thing worse than the item itself is, of course, its name. It’s like it’s been designed specifically to deliver the maximum amount of embarrassment possible to the child of the parent wearing it; double-barrelled shame. Given my father’s love of innuendo coupled with my mother’s fondness for vaginal banter, the fanny pack is like a red rag to a pair of old perverts. No boy should ever have to hear his own father utter the sentence, “I’m just going to have a rootle in Mummy’s fanny pack.” In the interest of balance and so that we don’t get too many complaints from the International Society of Fanny Packers, my mother wanted to add this. It is a strange hill she has chosen to die on... Hilary: defence of fanny packs I think that Jack’s protestations are a bit disingenuous, as I reckon secretly he wishes he had the confidence and panache, not to say the hips, to carry one off. Many’s the time he has been saved by an essential emergency item from the cavernous nether regions of my fanny pack (I can imagine him squirming as he reads those words, because he knows it’s true!). I have viva las vegas Hilary and Michael in Sin City been known on occasions to wear more than one at a time – double bagging, as it were – so as to get more fanny for my buck, creating what I think of as a very fetching double-decker or mezzanine effect. I also have to factor in that Michael is likely to say to me once we are far from home he “doesn’t want to ruin the line of his jacket by carrying his stuff in his pockets” and could he slip something of his into my “fanny”. Well, Michael Whitehall packs quite a lot in the valuables department I can tell you; we are talking glasses, fountain pens, leather diaries, on dressier occasions even his Prince Albert, a fob watch he inherited from his father, an item Jack for some reason finds even more disturbing than my fanny pack. Michael’s odds and sods would fill a whole fanny pack with ease, hence my requirement to carry more than one. MicHael: THongs down Under I have never understood how anyone can get their foot into a flip-flop, let alone keep it on their foot while walking. In Australia, when filming Travels with my Father, I discovered that they refer to them as ‘thongs’, although no one thought to pass this information on to me before we got there. You can imagine my concern when an eager young production runner called Steve bounded over to me at breakfast one morning and asked if I’d packed my thongs for the beach scene. “I most certainly have not!” I replied. When he suggested I might borrow a pair of his, as we looked about the same size, I nearly spat out my tea. I wasn’t sure if this was impertinence or an attempt at flirtation. I wonder what on earth they call the other thong?

DMEEIR irishmirror.ie 25 As data centres take up more and more energy, campaigners say.. TUESDAY 12.10.2021 IRISH DAILY MIRROR BY SHAUNA CORR Environment Correspondent tech giants like Facebook and Google they have become the lifeblood of the digital age. Vast data centres that store your every search and post in the allknowing “Cloud”. But the reality beneath it is an ever growing bricks and cables network of storage facilities for the powerhungry data industry, much of it dotted across the Irish landscape. And climate change campaigners are warning the lifeblood big tech demands is being sucked from the veins of Irish communities and the environment, along with enough energy to power almost one third of homes in the country. This week data centres became a frontline in Ireland’s war to slash its carbon emissions by 2030 and help the global effort to hold back devastating climate change impacts. Political battlelines were drawn when the Government — including the Green Party — shot down an opposition bill that would have paused all new centres until their impact on Ireland’s climate targets is fully understood. The coalition instead wants to classify the digital storage network as part of Ireland’s strategic economic infrastructure. There are also growing concerns the energy-hungry monoliths now dotted across our cities and countryside could turn out the lights while heralding a raft of new fossil fuel power plants. The facilities could be sucking up almost a third of the electricity generated across Ireland by 2030 according to EirGrid. Other estimates put this as high as 70%. The same energy that powers homes, schools and hospitals. STABLE Dublin City University Professor Barry McMullin says immediate concerns the “electricity grid will not be stable over successive winters” could soon overshadowed by “the emissions impact” of Ireland’s growing data centre sector. The companies behind them benefit from Ireland’s low corporation tax rate while Government says they helped rebrand the country as an “innovative economy”. But their growth has also triggered a wave of unease that sparked a failed Social Democrats motion for a temporary moratorium as well as a People Before Profit Planning and Development Bill which sought a ban on any further applications. According to a report from Ireland’s Data Hosting Industry, 10 new data centres went on line from 2020-2021 bringing the total in operation to 70. Between them they were using 900MW of connected power capacity – enough electricity for more than 600,000 homes – and created 1.85% of Ireland’s carbon emissions. The current pressure on electricity supplies from the sector has seen EirGrid and the GrowinG ConCern More data centres, like Facebook’s in co Meath, are in the works We don’t feel there has been enough of an assessment Jerry MceVILLy Friends oF the earth Picture: RTE NEws Tech action on carbon emissions Commission for Regulation of Utilities raise concerns, with the latter warning of “rolling blackouts”. EirGrid chief Mark Foley told the Oireachtas joint committee on Environment and Climate Action recently: “It is correct to say a significant amount of Ireland’s forecasted growth for electricity is expected to come from the ICT sector, namely data centres.” But he was hopeful any growth in demand “can be accommodated by an appropriate policy framework” that will ensure all parties are part of the solution. However, Prof McMullin, who also gave evidence to the committee, has serious concerns. He said: “In the analysis we’ve done in DCU we’ve found it very difficult to understand how continued data centre expansion can possibly be squared with supposed national commitments to reduce climate affecting emissions. EMERGENCY “The Government collectively has set out its stall saying they take the climate emergency seriously and they recognise that much stronger measures are necessary — but they are not 70% how much of Ireland’s electricity data centres could be using by 2030 10 new data centres came on line in the past year bringing total to 70 bringing it down to hard, concrete actions that involve weighing up trade-offs between different kinds of hard choices. The sooner we get to that the better, but in the meantime we shouldn’t be making those choices more difficult. “It’s much harder to shut something down after it’s in place.” Friends of the Earth’s head of policy change Jerry McEvilly added: “We don’t feel there has been enough of an assessment on the impact on our systems.” Proposed plans for a data centre in Ennis, Co Clare include a 4,674sq m power station featuring 18 gas engines with 25m chimneys as well as 66 back up diesel generators in its six 19m high data storage buildings. Theresa O’Donohoe from Future Proof Clare is among those campaigning against the plant she says will use equivalent power to 210,000 homes and up to one million litres of water on a warm day. She said: “It’s not OK – the environmental cost is too damaging. Environmental Trust Ireland president, Michelle Hayes, added: “There should not be competition in a just and compassionate society between the energy needs of individuals and the cloud computing requirements of large corporations.” ADDRESSING THE IMPACT A spokesperson for the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications said: “The expansion of data centres in Ireland is projected to lead to a significant increase in electricity demand. “This raises challenges for the energy system.” But they added: “We do 600k not believe that a complete moratorium on the development of data centres is a propor- tionate response. A number of homes that more appropriate could be powered by response is to enable energy used by centres the transition to a zerocarbon electricity 18 gas engines are part of a proposed data centre in Co Clare system — through policy and regulation.” WATER On the issue of water usage, they said: “Irish Water, working with applicants through the connection enquiry process, has found new data centres are now using water efficient technology. “This uses closed-loop cooling water in their cooling processes. In other words, they are re-using the same water over and over. “As a result, they are really only using newly-added (or additional) water for canteen and hygiene uses. For this reason, future data centre expansion (with closed-loop cooling) is not a concern for Irish Water.” And on the issue of air quality they admitted data centres can have an “indirect impact.” news@irishmirror.ie

26 IRISH DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 12.10.2021 DMEEIR HEALTH The presenter talks to Amy Packer about shingles, slipped discs and suffering severe stress Most of us will have recoiled from our own reflection in the mirror after a heavy night at some point. But for Eamonn Holmes, there was one morning that was more alarming than most. “I literally jumped back at my image shouting ‘what the heck is this?’” recalls the presenter, who had no idea what was causing the cold sore-like scabs and stabbing pains in his face. “It was like waking up in a horror movie. “When I called my doctor and said it was on my face the first question was, ‘Is it near your eyes? Don’t touch your eyes because it could affect your vision – you could go blind. Get down here to let me see it’. It was panic stations.” While he was sleeping Eamonn had developed shingles, a painful rash caused by the reactivation of the chickenpox (varicella zoster) virus, an illness he says was entirely unexpected ‘‘ The doc said, ‘Get down here and don’t touch your eyes – you can go blind’ and laid him low for weeks. “I had to ask my mother if I’d had chickenpox and she said, ‘Of course you have!’. “But I thought shingles usually happened to mothers with young kids who were stressed, so it was such a surprise to me,” explains the 61 year old, who is adding his voice to the Understanding Shingles awareness campaign. In the UK, 90 per cent of adults have had chickenpox, so will have the virus dormant in their nervous system. Yet a recent survey of more than 2,000 people, sponsored by GSK, found that many did not know basic facts about shingles, with only 60 per cent aware that having had chickenpox makes you susceptible. The risk and severity of shingles increases with age, particularly in those aged 50 and above, and during times of stress or lowered immune system. In retrospect, Eamonn has no doubt that stress was the trigger of his illness back in 2018. “HM Revenue & Customs had decided to challenge my status as a freelancer [claiming he was an employee of ITV and therefore liable to pay more tax], so we had just been to court. “It was the most horrendous experience of my life, outside my father dying suddenly 30 years ago. A week of absolute bullying and harassment. It was like being clubbed. I was absolutely drained so, low and behold, I developed shingles. It was incredibly painful and EXCLU EAMONN People write y off, bu I’m at top of game exhausting, and I had to take time off work to recuperate. I couldn’t have gone on telly like that.

I was proud of myself for getting through that.” The thought of attending last month’s National Television Awards was more stressful, as Eamonn didn’t feel ready to be seen on air using a crutch. “I decided that if we won I just wouldn’t go on stage because I wouldn’t be able to get up the steps without using the crutch,” he admits. “I discussed it with Ruth and my friend Sue Johnston, the actress, who is a lovely woman – we’ve been very close for 30 years. A few days later the most beautiful silver capped cane arrived in the post from Sue and when I showed it to Ruth she said, ‘just own it’. “I had no idea what the reaction to it would be, but I realised it was the right thing to do because actually I was improving and that was a statement that I was improving. CANED At TV Awards with his wife Ruth ... son Declan’s wedding coming up in a few days’ time. I’d been really looking forward to it because it was the first wedding in the family, but it really had an impact on the day. I looked awful. I had makeup all over my face trying to pretend everything was fine, but my eyes were just two slits.” While most people make a full recovery, shingles can potentially lead to serious and long-lasting problems, including prolonged nerve pain that can last for months or longer. “I was blissfully ignorant about it t I now know that as we get older e more at risk, so people really do to be more aware. all take our health for granted t’s gone, but when it suddenly appen to you it’s a whole new me, isn’t it? Whether it’s shingles, or your sciatic nerve.” The mention of back problems is no throwaway remark. Eamonn has been battling with severe issues since March this year, when two slipped discs in his spine caused nerve damage. “I had a month suffering with excruciating pain, but thankfully steroid injections have dealt with that so pain is no longer the issue it was,” he says. “The ongoing problem is that the discs impinged on my sciatic nerve, which left me with a dead right leg. So I can’t feel my foot and have to use a crutch.” Recovery has been a slow process. “Seven months I’ve been like this and for the first four I didn’t think anything was going to make a difference, so I’ve been feeling a lot of frustration,” he admits. “I couldn’t lie on my back. I couldn’t sit down. I couldn’t sleep at night, ‘‘ I had to stop driving because I couldn’t move my foot from the accelerator to the brake which was absolutely awful. “I would try anything and everything but I just didn’t have much belief that anything was going to change.” Thankfully there is finally some light at the end of the tunnel. “I’m definitely getting better,” Eamonn says with palpable relief. “I SHOCK Eamonn swollen with shingles have physio almost every day. You have to do the same things over and over again – like choreographing a dance – and you have to push yourself. “My physio would tell me to do the simplest things and I would say, ‘This is ridiculous. I can’t do this. I can’t lie down, I can’t get up, I can’t do anything’. He would shout at me and I would shout at him. But I have to say, in the past few weeks we have embraced each other because there is definitely an improvement now. I’ve started to get some feeling back at last. “I’ve a long way to go and I doubt I’ll be fixed by Christmas, but I certainly intend to give it a heck of a shot.” Throwing himself into work has been a lifeline during the darkest hours of recovery. “I carried on with my work commitments, doing what I was going to do,” says Eamonn, who spent the summer filming a new series, Farm to Feast, for BBC Northern Ireland. “I used my crutch until the camera rolled and then I threw it to the side. I couldn’t walk during the pieces to camera because I just was completely lopsided, but I could stand still and I “People will write you off but am I at the top of my game? Yes. And I’ve got more to give. I wanted to show people they shouldn’t let these things hold them back. Yes, you can be in pain but you can still have a job, you can still have a purpose in life. Besides, distraction is a wonderful thing when you’re in pain.” Despite such a significant injury, Eamonn doesn’t know the exact moment the damage was done. “I just kept thinking ‘why me, why did this happen?’ because I couldn’t actually tell you exactly when it went. I have a rough idea it was getting out of a car and getting back into the same car, but I don’t know for sure.” Ironically, the thought of getting back into a car is helping motivate Eamonn to work harder towards his recovery. “I had to stop driving because I couldn’t move my foot from the accelerator to the brake,” he says. “It has been a big frustration. I like to drive and I like to get out and about, so I’ve found that quite debilitating. “I’m certainly not fixed, but finally I can see that I’m improving all the time. So when I’m better I think I’ll go car shopping, get myself a heck of a car and enjoy the ride.” ■Understanding ■ Shingles is a new campaign supported by Eamonn Holmes together with GSK and the Shingles Support Society.

28 IRISH DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 12.10.2021 DMEEIR HEALTH From boosting your heart, brain function and mood, to helping with weight loss and even lifting libido, there are so many benefits to heading out for a jog. But how can you pep up your performance? James Moore discovers some surprising ways to step up your running regime... BE AN ESPRESSO: Olympic gold medal-winning legend Sir Mo Farah drinks coffee 20 minutes before a race, and there’s plenty of evidence that it can help you run faster. The key is thought to be the caffeine in the drink. A report in the British Journal of Sports Science found people who drank coffee before running 1,500 metres on the treadmill finished 4.2 seconds faster than those who hadn’t. CAN’T BE BEET: Experts have found including beetroot in your diet really could help you power up when striding out. A study from St Louis University in the US found it could speed up running times over 5km compared with other foods with the same number of calories. Other studies have shown beetroot can help Run for your life increase stamina. The effect is thought to be down to the nitrate content. There’s also evidence dark chocolate provides a similar benefit. MAKE TRACKS: Listening to music can make running more interesting, and it can increase your endurance by 15 per cent, said Brunel University London research. Other research, from Edinburgh University, identified that the right motivational playlist could be crucial, with tracks such as Survivor’s Eye Of The Tiger and Kanye West’s Power being top choices. GRIN AND BEAR IT: Try smiling as you run. It can increase efficiency and help you save energy over long distances, according to a study in the journal of Sport and Exercise. Grinning also helped runners consume 2.2 per cent less oxygen. It is believed smiling can help runners feel more relaxed. JUMP TO IT: Try plyometrics, also known as “jump training”. These fast, explosive exercises could increase your speed over 10km, according to a study by the University of Nebraska. And if you find yourself reaching a running plateau, add in some weights. A study in the journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise found mixing things up with some strength training could help make you a stronger runner. TIME IT: The jury is out on what time of day it’s best to go for a run, though running early can help you avoid poor air quality. But don’t stress if you haven’t got much time. Intense running for less than five minutes has the same benefits for the heart as a 45-minute jogging session, according to experts at Curtin University in Australia. Another study showed just seven minutes of running a day could have significant health benefits. STYLE COUNTS: Runners who exercise outdoors tend to expend more energy than those in the gym – plus it improves their mood. If you are on a treadmill, though, try doing it in front of a mirror. Researchers at Teesside University found watching your reflection can help you coordinate your limbs better so you run more smoothly. DOUBLE YOUR EFFORTS: Several studies have shown running with a group, a friend or your partner can encourage you to stay on track with your regime and even go further. And an added bonus is that one survey found that 66 per cent of runners had more sex when they ran with their partner. SHOE IN: Make sure you’ve got some good footwear for your run – but you don’t necessarily have to shell out on expensive trainers. Although it is unclear why, one Swiss study found runners wearing expensive shoes were actually more likely to get injured.

Annabel Lintott died of ovarian cancer at the age of 46. Now her friends and family are on a mission to spread an important message, Lizzie Catt discovers There aren’t many charity bike rides that detour into a vineyard and end with a glass of fizz. But for friends of TAnnabel Annabel Lintott, incorporating a touch of style into the fundraiser in her memory was a fitting tribute. When Annabel, 46, died from ovarian cancer in February, her friend Ian McCulloch says those who loved her were left feeling “slightly helpless. We can support her husband Paul and their children, but what can you practically do?”. Ian – managing director of drinks firm Silent Pool Gin – and some of Annabel and Paul’s other friends came up with the idea of a charity bike ride with a twist. Their aim is to raise £20,000 for charity Target Ovarian Cancer and hopefully increase awareness of the disease too. “I didn’t know until recently that a woman dies every two hours of ovarian cancer in the UK,” says Ian. “Most of our friendship group are in their mid to late 40s and the women are experiencing perimenopausal symptoms. “We want to make sure that women and GPs don’t dismiss what could be signs of ovarian cancer as perimenopause, or something like IBS, so they get diagnosed as early as possible.” The 116.5-mile “Coast to Toast” bike ride on October 2 began in Milford on Sea in Hampshire, where Annabel was born and grew up. Riders called at the Wiston Estate Winery in Sussex to collect a few bottles of English sparkling wine. The finish line was at the Wimbledon village branch of delicatessen Bayley & Sage, where Annabel was marketing director, to raise a glass in her honour. Jennie Allen, who owns Bayley & Sage, worked alongside Annabel for many years and was a close friend. “She was amazing,” says Jennie, 59. “Caring, stylish and very firm but in a gentle way. She had great manners, charm and immense style. “If she said to me, ‘Jennie, are you sure you’re happy with this?’ I’d know that meant she didn’t like something. I can’t tell you how lovely she was. “She was so gracious, and that grace continued throughout her illness.” CHAINS REACTION Paul and Vanessa’s friends prepare for charity ride TRAGIC Annabel’s diagnosis was too late to save her When Annabel found herself going back and forth to the GP with abdominal discomfort, ending up in A&E with severe pain in 2018, it was Jennie who told her to push for investigations into ovarian cancer. It’s a disease Jennie knows all too well, having been treated for it herself twice. Annabel was finally diagnosed, undergoing surgery involving a radical hysterectomy, the removal of her bowel and spleen and tumours from her liver and diaphragm. She later ‘‘ We want to make sure that women and GPs don’t miss the signs received chemotherapy. Throughout her illness, the friends were in touch most days. “I had received my diagnosis in September 2013 and was treated successfully, but it recurred in September 2014. I was told I had between one and three years left to live,” Jennie said. But, after Jennie’s team at the Royal Marsden Hospital fought for her to have secondary surgery and radiotherapy, she is now six years clear. “I have been so fortunate to come out the other side and have a life expectancy nobody thought I’d have. I’m now determined to help other women.” This starts, says Jennie, with symptoms being understood and investigated promptly. “We must stop calling ovarian cancer a silent killer – women are Symptom checkliSt Symptoms of ovarian cancer: • Persistent bloating – not bloating that comes and goes. Feeling full quickly and/or loss of appetite. Pelvic or abdominal pain (that’s your tummy and below) • Urinary symptoms (needing to wee more urgently or more often than usual) Occasionally there can be other symptoms: • Changes in bowel habit (eg diarrhoea or constipation) • Extreme fatigue • Unexplained weight loss • Any bleeding after the menopause should always be investigated by a GP. Symptoms will be: • Frequent – they usually happen more than 12 times a month • Persistent – they don’t go away • New – they’re not normal for you.

I was in a high risk group. Yet we can be told it’s IBS, a bladder infection, coeliac disease, perimenopause or menopause. A CA-125 blood test can help indicate there’s a problem. Women can also be sent for a scan. “I was super, super lucky. The stars aligned for me. They didn’t align for Annabel, and that sort of randomness is not something we should tolerate.” Annabel’s husband Paul says she would agree wholeheartedly with Jennie. “I know exactly what Annabel would say to women. ‘Be firm, get checked out. Trust your gut, and if you know something’s wrong, don’t take no for an answer’.” Paul and the children, Ollie, 17, and Grace, 15, (along with Buzz, the 12-year-old Hungarian wirehaired vizsla) are learning to carry on without Annabel – no mean feat, says Paul. When she went into hospital for her surgery, Annabel gave Paul a “handbook of routines and rota – where the children needed to be and when, what went in packed lunches.” Passionate about food and trained at Leiths Cookery School, Annabel taught the family how to make some of her favourite dishes while she was ill, FaceTiming or answering questions shouted up the stairs. Ollie now cooks a salmon dish of Annabel’s with spring onions, chillies and rice every week. Paul is back to work at his property consultancy Lintott & Company and the children are preparing for a summer of exams next year. “Annabel told us, ‘When I’m gone, I’m gone’. She wanted us to be happy, not sad.” However, Paul, Ian and Jennie all agree that while she loved skiing, there would be no way Annabel could have been enticed into a 12 hour, threecounty bike ride. “She’d think we were mad,” laughs Ian. “Anything that involved sweating or looking ruffled, she wouldn’t have been up for that.” ■Sponsor ■ the team’s efforts at coasttotoast.co.uk.

DMEEIR 30 IRISH DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 12.10.2021 DEAR COLEEN dearcoleen@mirror.co.uk your problems solved had enough of our open relatIonshIp Dear Coleen I’m a 29-year-old woman and I’ve had a non-exclusive relationship with my partner for several years. We both date other people, although, to be honest, he does it more than I do. His parents are unconventional and have always had an open marriage, so it’s what he’s used to, but as I’m getting older, I don’t think it’s what I want any more, even though I love my partner. He says his parents haven’t seen other people for years and are happy with it just being them now, but when they were young they were just honest about wanting to sleep with other people. They’ve been together for 30 years, so I guess it worked for them. He thinks we could be the same, but I’m not convinced. I’d love your opinion. Happily married but I keep fantasising about first love Dear Coleen I’m a woman in my early 30s and have a 14-year-old son after getting pregnant with my ex when we were both 18. We split up soon after our son was born, but have always got on really well and he is a really good dad. Now I’m married with a three-yearold daughter and I’ve started to fantasise about my ex a lot. I keep thinking we were just too young back then and if we’d met now we’d have fallen in love, got married and been together for life. I think the only reason we broke up after our son was born was that we were too young to be parents and neither of us was ready to settle down. He ended up going to university and I went back to studying when our son was three. Things are different now, we both have good jobs and life is steady. My ex has a long-term girlfriend, but they don’t have kids. I do love my husband and he’s a great dad to our daughter, but the physical spark I have with my ex makes things so confusing. I have no idea how he feels by the way, or if he’d ever consider starting a relationship with me again. Please help. “I feel if we’d met now we would be a couple for life Coleen says Well maybe because your life is steady at the moment you can have these fantasies, but if you ended up having an affair or leaving your marriage, everything will blow up. It might not be a fantasy then. I think if you’re in a comfortable place and you love your husband, think very carefully about going back. If I were you, I’d look at ways to make your marriage more exciting instead. I’ve often looked back to my first boyfriend, who I was with for four years, and thought he was “the one”, and I’ve looked back fondly on both marriages to the good times, but none of those relationships would work now because we’re not the same people any more. And you and your ex are different people now because of how your life experiences have shaped you. It won’t be the same. We all have fantasies and like to think back to those youthful relationships that were so thrilling – it’s how we act on them that’s crucial. So, before you capsize the boat, be sure it’s the right thing to do. Coleen says Personally, I couldn’t do it either and don’t think it’s for the majority but, if you can do it and make it work, that’s great. I get it at the start of a relationship when you’re not 100% involved, but sustaining it can be hard. If you really don’t want this going forward, it’s not going to work and you have to be honest with him now. If you want to be exclusive in a relationship, then you deserve to have that. It only works if both of you are completely on board with it, which obviously his parents were. I’ve known a few couples in the past who’ve had open relationships and things always start off fine, but in the end one partner doesn’t want to do it any more. I think it can make you very insecure, which is damaging for your self-esteem. you say I’d like to comment on the letter from the woman worried about what potential dates will think of the fact she’s a single, unemployed mum (Dear Coleen, October 7). If the fact you had to give up your job to take care of your child is a problem for a man, then he’s not worth dating. He should like you for you – not because of what job you have or where you live. Look at it this way, if your situation puts some guys off, it’s a good way of weeding out the rubbish ones! Em, via email PROBLEMS?

The County Kildare track is staging its first National Hunt action of the winter season today and tomorrow, with free admission for all racegoers (who have to register in advance on the website, for track and trace purposes) on both days. And the reappearance of Ballyadam, a Grade 1- winning novice hurdler last season, is an ideal appetiser for what lies ahead over the coming months. An easy winner of his maiden in Down Royal and the Grade 1 Royal Bond at Fairyhouse for Gordon Elliott early last season, the gelding then finished behind Appreciate It in three Grade 1 events, at Leopardstown twice and, after being transferred to Henry de Bromhead’s yard, when beaten 24 lengths in the Supreme Novices at Cheltenham. Having achieved a rating of 148, Ballyadam ended his season with a tame effort at Aintree, finishing a distant fourth behind My Drogo in the Grade 1 Betway Mersey Novices Hurdle. Winner of his only pointto-point, Ballyadam is a very exciting chasing prospect and, suited by good ground, I expect him to make a winning start over fences, with the season’s leading rider Darragh O’Keeffe on board. Leading the opposition is the Emmet Mullinstrained Cape Gentleman, whose CV features a win in the Irish Cesarewitch last year and success in the Grade 2 Dovecote Novice Hurdle at Kempton. The Ray Cody-trained Bell Ex One – successful on his second hurdle start, in Listowel – is napped to follow-up in the Ladbrokes Get Extra Places 3-Y-0 Hurdle. Beaten by Realist on his jumping bow in Down Royal, he produced a far more polished display when turning the tables on Elliott’s charge in Listowel and is expected to confirm form with third-placed Calvados, 6lb better off today and wearing cheekpieces for the first time. Bell Ex One, a dualwinner on the flat and rated 75 in that sphere, relishes a strong pace and being produced late. With in-form 5lb claimer Jack Foley on board, he should take plenty of beating, with Calvados and Elliott’s French import Laishann likely to chase him home. The featured Ladbrokes Best Odds Guaranteed Hurdle has attracted only five runners, but is very difficult to solve. The Willie Mullinstrained Koshari is toprated, with a mark of 150. But I prefer to look elsewhere for the likely winner. His stable-companion Dysart Diamond, raised 8lb to 139 for her Grade B handicap win in Listowel last month, is set to receive weight from her four rivals and with Jack Foley claiming a valuable 5lb, Noel Meade’s Jesse Evans might prove the main danger.

TUESDAY 12.10.2021 IRISH DAILY MIRROR 39 ter-riFF-ic Mishriff is 7-4 favourite for the Champion Stakes on Saturday gosdens on a champions day mish-ion By chris GOuldinG John GoSdEn has the firepower at Saturday’s Qipco Champions day to overtake Charlie Appleby and become the season’s champion trainer with his son Thady. Appleby is uncertain about playing his ace card — derby winner Adayar in Ascot’s Qipco Champion Stakes. But the Gosdens, now joint trainers, have confirmed Mishriff for the Champion Stakes and Palace Pier for the QEII, plus they have possible back-up in Stradivarius in the Champions Long distance Cup. The formidable partnership also plan to run Free Wind (Champions Fillies & Mares) and Sunray Major (Balmoral handicap). Mishriff is the 7-4 favourite for the Champion Stakes and Gosden (below) said: “We’ve been happy with him and we should get better ground than last year (eighth), when he really didn’t like it.” Palace Pier, rated the best miler in the world, heads the QEII betting at 13-8. “It was frustrating when Palace Pier had to miss the Sussex Stakes with a blood disorder,” added Gosden. “But he has since won the Prix Jacques Le Marois and is training well.” The drying ground will favour Stradivarius if he rocks up in what will be a fascinating clash with Trueshan, his conqueror at Longchamp. July Cup winner Starman, the highestrated sprinter in Europe, will not be running at Ascot as he has been retired to stud after suffering an injury. her majesty enters racing hall of fame THE QUEEN has been inducted into QIPCO British Champions Series Hall of Fame for her contribution to racing. Since Her Majesty’s first winner with Monaveen over jumps at Fontwell in 1949, the Queen has celebrated more than 1,800 winners and has twice been champion owner on the Flat in 1954 and 1957. She has also bred and owned the winner of every British Classic apart from the Derby. John Warren, The Queen’s racing adviser, said: “I suspect she will have a lot of inner pride in being invited into the Hall of Fame.”

Hamilton (below) took aim at his Mercedes team after he dropped from third to fifth following a late pit stop. The world champion, who now trails Red Bull’s Max Verstappen by six points, vented his annoyance, shouting: “F***, man. Why did we give up the place? We shouldn’t have come in... I told you.” He then demanded his race engineer Peter Bonnington left him alone. But in a social media post yesterday, Hamilton said: “Don’t ever expect me to be all polite and calm on the radio when I’m racing. “We’re all very passionate, and in the heat of the moment that passion can come out, as it does for all the drivers. “But any angst is quickly forgotten and we talked it through, and are already looking ahead to the next race.” cricket t20 world cup get a gRiP..

irishmirror.ie/sport TUESDAY 12.10.2021 IRISH DAILY MIRROR 41 GAA conGress d-dAy countdown By Pat nolan PODgE cOLLINs would welcome friday night football if ‘proposal B’ for championship reform is passed. The motion, which would essentially see the League format adopted for the Championship, would result in far more big games packed into single weekends, particularly with the incoming split season model as the Championship will be played between April and July. The Gaelic Players’ Association last week said it would back Friday night games to ensure more exposure and a less cluttered schedule, citing how it’s been a success for ladies football where neighbouring counties are concerned. Clare footballer Collins sits on the GPA’s national executive committee and is very much in favour of ‘proposal B’, which goes to a vote at Special Congress on October 23. The GAA was particularly enthusiastic about Friday night games a number of years ago with Carlow and Laois set the weekend in motion by playing a Friday night qualifier in Netwatch Cullen Park in 2013. The same year, they pushed for a Dublin-Kildare League game to take place at Croke Park on a Friday night though Kildare wouldn’t agree to it. Collins said: “Personally, I’d like the idea of it. “But obviously it would have to be counties that are close to each other, you couldn’t have a situation where lads would be missing out on work or college, and as amateur players that is where it’s going to be an issue. “There’s not a lot on on a Friday evening competition-wise, so you’d have a lot of spectators and a lot of people tuning in to view that game on TV. “I’d be definitely open to it, like you see in other sports – the NFL runs on Monday night and Thursday nights, the same in soccer with Monday Night Football – you’d be more inclined to watch a game on a Monday night than on a Sunday at 3.30 when there is so much on, so it would be something to look at.” Collins’ father Colm is likely to stay on as the longest serving manager in county football with 2022 set to be his ninth season at the helm and Podge, after changing codes at various stages after winning an All-Ireland with the hurlers in 2013, will be committing to the footballers once again. “I’m enjoying football, and I get to both codes with my club.” OkunbOr return skuppered By Pat nolan nEW Kerry boss Jack O’Connor had little chance to run the rule over stefan Okunbor as he made his Gaelic football comeback at the weekend. Okunbor, who has just returned to Ireland after a three-year spell with AFL club Geelong, only lasted some 19 minutes of his club na Gaeil’s intermediate quarter-final win over Ballydonoghue on sunday before retiring through injury. An All-Ireland minor winner, he played under-20 football for Kerry under O’Connor before his departure for Australia. “I’m looking forward to watching him playing with his club na Gaeil,” said O’Connor. “He has got the athleticism, the raw physique to play at the top level, 100 per cent but it comes down to ball skills, decision-making and that.” ProFessIonal Okunbor playing AFL friday night delights cleary Clare ace Collins happy to kick weekend off with a bang if schedule is condensed A coll to Arms Podge collins tracks David clifford of Kerry, right, speaks at gPA gig and, above, dad colm HaMPsey MarKIng Morgan For club By FrancIs Mooney A fAscINAtINg sub-plot to a sensational tyrone sfc tie cast two All-Ireland winners into an unlikely personal duel. goalkeeper Niall Morgan lined out at full forward for Edendork against coalisland and their tyrone skipper Padraig Hampsey and it was the latter who came out on top after two stoppage time goals saw na fianna win the out on HIs eoIn EOIN CLEARY has been hailed by Podge Collins after earning a PwC All Star nomination. While such honours for Clare footballers have become more common in recent years with Gary Brennan and Jamie Malone making the cut, it’s still a standout achievement for a player operating outside of Division One. Cleary (above) got the nod on the back of very nearly guiding Clare to the top flight this year with an impressive showing in Division Two. Collins said: “He’s just an excellent player, and it’s just a pity that this year we only got to see him once in the Championship. “His performance up in Kildare in the League was just out of this world, some of the points he was kicking. “But Eoin is a man like that, it wouldn’t surprise you when you train with him and you see some of the goals he gets.” quarter-final 4-9 to 3-10. Morgan scored two points, one from play, and gave Hampsey a difficult afternoon. “If he got the better of me for one ball, it was the next one, to try and get on the ball myself,” said Hampsey. “Niall is a shrewd operator inside. He wins marks, and he’s a strong player. “He keeps me right in training in the full back line.” under Pressure Meath football boss Andy McEntee McEntee awaits his Royal fate By Paul Keane Andy McEntEE’s hopes of remaining Meath manager have been boosted by confirmation that a 60 per cent majority vote will be required to remove him. Meath’s county board will meet at the Knightsbrook Hotel this evening to consider an executive committee recommendation that the nobber man be axed. Members of the executive committee voted eight to seven last week to end McEntee’s time in charge following an earlier review of his progress. Meath’s 59 clubs, along with officials, will have the opportunity to vote on the issue at this evening’s meeting in trim. McEntee, who led Meath to Leinster finals in 2019 and 2020, wishes to remain for a sixth season having been handed a fresh three-year deal after the 2019 Championship. He will have a green light to remain if he receives as little as 41 per cent of the vote this evening. It had been thought that a mere simple majority may be enough to remove McEntee. If McEntee does continue he will approach 2022 with a new look management team including highly rated coach John McCloskey. should county board delegates opt to retain McEntee, it will be the third time in 11 years that they have gone against the wishes of the executive regarding senior team management. delegates rejected a proposal to retain then Leinster title winning manager Eamonn O’Brien in 2010. two years later, an attempt to remove seamus McEnaney as manager was prevented by a county board vote. Meath blew a great chance to secure promotion to division 1 this year, losing a play-off against Kildare, though finished the season on a relative high with a strong Leinster semi-final performance against dublin.

42 IRISH DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 12.10.2021 RUGBY MORE BAD NEW FOR REDS ACE REALLY NOT AGAIN RG Snyman faces another lengthy spell on sidelines. Left, try against Stormers GUTTED Snyman faces another long spell out over cruciate rupture BY MICHAeL SCULLy RG SNymaN’S unfortunate injury diagnosis is the first discordant note struck of munster’s fantastic season. “Here I go again. #round2fight,” the South African lock posted on Instagram yesterday. The high-flying Reds are level with Ulster at the top of the new United Rugby Championship standings, with both provinces a point ahead of Leinster, having secured three bonus point victories on the spin. Johann van Graan would have had time to digest the fact that another long lay-off was coming for his World Cup-winning Springbok, with the head coach (right) revealing after Sunday’s impressive victory at the Scarlets that Synman had suffered another “significant” injury. And confirmation followed early yesterday afternoon, with the 26-year-old told that he had ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament again. Between rehab of the initial injury and then needing a skin graft after a fire pit accident at the start of the summer, it took the giant second row more than a year to return to action. His long-awaited and much-anticipated comeback after only managing seven minutes on his debut in August 2020 only lasted three appearances off the bench. His introduction as a replacement in the season opener a g a i n s t t h e Sharks was met with a heartfelt roar f r o m t h e Munster faithful, something he later de- scribed as a “goosebump” moment. Then he gave DMEEIR an encouraging glimpse of what he was going to bring to the team in scoring in the comeback win against the Stormers. But he only lasted nine minutes at Parc Y Scarlets, coming off after a seemingly innocuous lineout jump. Sadly, it’s a massive setback for him again on a personal level as he awaits a meeting with the specialist regarding the next steps. It is also a big blow for the province, who do still have quality options with T a d h g Beirne to return after his Lions commit- ments and South African Jason Jenkins JUST PLeASe dON’T HUrry bACk HArry BY MICHAeL SCULLy HaRRy ByRNe has been told there is no need to rush back after his latest injury frustration. The 23-year-old Leinster playmaker’s bid to make a statement to Leo Cullen and andy Farrell ended prematurely as he was forced off in the 23rd minute of Saturday’s 43-7 victory over Zebre. Byrne, only returning from a foot injury, got a knock on the hip pointer and will be further assessed but he is ruled out of Saturday’s RDS clash with the Scarlets. “He’s trying to make an impression, trying to get some game time,” said Leinster’s attack coach Felipe Contepomi (inset). “Like anyone here, whenever he has the chance he wants to go out and enjoy it. “I feel sorry for him because he has been training hard and he’s been on and off with niggles and injury and some sickness and so he needs stability. It’s another setback but hopefully nothing major.” Contepomi says out-half Byrne (right) is a positive person and, despite the proximity of URC STANDINGS P W D L F A Pts Munster ....................3 3 0 0 119 48 15 Ulster ........................3 3 0 0 99 40 15 Leinster ....................3 3 0 0 81 16 14 Glasgow ....................3 2 0 1 77 68 11 Edinburgh ................3 1 1 1 73 70 9 Ospreys .....................3 2 0 1 58 64 8 Benetton ..................3 2 0 1 58 73 8 Dragons ....................3 1 0 2 64 56 7 Cardiff .......................3 1 0 2 66 68 6 Scarlets ....................3 1 0 2 71 82 6 Lions ..........................3 1 0 2 60 75 6 Connacht ................3 1 0 2 77 75 5 Sharks........................3 1 0 2 68 90 4 Bulls ...........................3 1 0 2 39 84 4 Stormers ..................3 0 1 2 56 76 3 Zebre .........................3 0 0 3 36 117 1 nearing his debut after a shoulder injury. However a fit Snyman would have been a serious weapon for van Graan this season. Instead, his two-year contract will end with him managing just 50 minutes or so for the province unless he is able to return before the end of the season. And it remains to be seen if he will be staying in Limerick beyond that. “We are all hugely disappointed for RG,” said the Reds boss. “After doing everything that was asked of him and working so hard to get back into great shape everyone feels for him right now. “While this is a setback, we know RG is young and resilient given everything he has gone through in the last year so there is a strong sense of perspective. “We have seen what other world class players have done in this position before and they have come back to reach the successful heights of their careers. “And I would expect no different for someone of RG’s class and standing.” the November internationals, the most important thing is for him to get right. “In terms of his mentality he’s good,” he said. “But I can imagine it’s a setback, he was so keen to get back after a very weird injury as well on the foot.” Caelan Doris trained yesterday and could be available for the Scarlets clash while Josh murphy (calf) has resumed full training and Jack Dunne is poised to follow suit. Ciaran Frawley and Scott Penny picked up dead legs against Zebre and will be assessed. IT CONNACHT GO ON Paul Boyle wants an end to woes Plea for a consistent Connacht BY JOHN FALLON ConnaCht, for once, will be hoping the inconsistency which has crippled them in recent years will continue this weekend. they are bidding to bounce back from their demoralising 35-22 loss at home to Dragons by shocking leaders Munster at thomond Park. But back rower Paul Boyle knows they need to find that elusive consistency if they are to have an impact this season. “that’s the most frustrating part. It’s a massive work-on,” said the 24-year old. “We’ve been talking about getting consistency but it’s going to take more looking inward on ourselves to really find out.” Boyle admitted morale was high in the camp after their 34-7 win over the Bulls but they then collapsed against Dragons, having started well before inexplicably losing their way as the newport side won in Galway for the first time in 17 years. he continued: “It felt like being on the cusp of it and then it was silly turnovers, handling errors or penalties that could not quite give us the impetus in the game that we wanted. “the frustrating part is that we were not far off. But that is not good enough. It really isn’t so we are going to have to be so much better over the next two weeks. “all is not lost. What it felt like out there, especially in that first half, was that we were close to taking them down. We just did not do it.” It was a horrible way for the Wexford man to spend his 60th game for Connacht and he knows they need to identify what went wrong if they are to have a chance against a Munster side who are top of the table after posting three straight bonus point wins. he added: “Every time we did something half good we couldn’t finish it off and make it completely good.”

The Gypsy King downed booze with his friends at a pool party at Wet Republic in the MGM Grand on Sunday afternoon, hours after he hammered Deontay Wilder in a brutal battle in Las Vegas. Fury, 33, was joined by wife Paris as he let loose with friends and fans in an afternoon session. The Brit (above) was dancing and spraying drink around to celebrate knocking out Wilder in the 11th round. He was also pictured with top DJ Steve Aoki during his three hours in the day club. Wilder faces a long spell on the sidelines after breaking a bone in a hand. He went to hospital after the fight but was later released. Trainer Malik Scott said: “He’s seen a doctor afterwards. He has a busted lip, he broke his hand, broke his finger, knuckle, something like that but life goes on.” ‘A massive Brit battle’ From back page Wilder in 11 rounds and the Body Snatcher says it would be a huge fight for the UK. He said: “Tyson Fury has been mandated to fight me twice and didn’t fight me, so now hopefully the WBC will force the position and leave him with no choice but to fight me. “Let’s be honest, it would be a massive British fight, two British fighters fighting for the heavyweight world championship. That would be great.” Wilder ducked Whyte when he was the WBC’s mandatory challenger and he claims the Bronze Bomber may be forced to quit because Fury gave him such a beating. “He took a lot of punishment and it could have finished his career potentially,” Whyte said. Wilder, 35, has no intention of retiring according to trainer Malik Scott. Scott said: “We have some big plans going forward. We are going to come back from this.” scare crow Fury’s dad says Tyson has the whole heavyweight division quaking... and Usyk will be really terrified as champ wants those belts he lost outside the ring By DaviD aNDersON @MirrorAnderson Tyson Fury’s dad believes oleksandr usyk is scared of his world champion son. John Fury (above) says Tyson is targeting Usyk after knocking out Deontay Wilder in 11 rounds in Las Vegas because he wants back his old WBA, IBF and WBO belts to become undisputed champion. Usyk must first win his rematch with former champion Anthony Joshua and John feels the Ukrainian is wary of taking on the unbeaten Gypsy King, who partied bigtime after his Vegas win (top). He said: “Usyk is more scared of Tyson than you will ever know because he knows how good he is. “It’s all about what AJ does next, does he go straight into the rematch with Usyk? “Tyson doesn’t care who’s next and he’ll fight anyone. He fears no man because he knows he has the beating of them all. He’s said he’d love to fight again this year against Dillian Whyte or whoever is out there. “He’s going to go after those other belts and Usyk. He had those three belts before he had to give them up because of his problems. He never lost them in the ring and regards them as his. He wants them back and he will fight Usyk or Joshua, whoever he needs to get them.” Fury could have a huge homecoming fight at Old Trafford next and his dad says he has won over the British public because of the battles he has won in and outside the ring. The public shunned Tyson when he beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 to become world champion for the first time because of his sexist and homophobic comments. John says people now admire him because of his unassuming personality and openness over his mental health problems. “Being British means the world to him and he is proud to fight for his country,” he said. “He should be proud because a few years ago, he had bad advice, he was in dark places, said all the wrong things, but you know what, the British public are warming towards the real Tyson Fury.

And he says the Fury is one of Britain’s greatest sporting figures. “I would love that fight between him and Joshua to happen but Joshua’s never going to beat Usyk in my opinion,” said Warren. “Tyson is the man to beat. Who out there can beat him? “When you think where he’s come from and all the problems, suicidal thoughts and everything, the ups and the downs, getting off the floor and coming back. He’s got this inner resolve, he’s a true man. “He went to Germany and beat Klitschko in his own back yard, outboxed the best fighter of his era.

The world No 2 has amazingly beaten rival Ronnie O’Sullivan 9-7 in the previous three finals. And ahead of facing Chinese cueman Gao yang in the second round, Trump said: “The passion of the fans here, you can just feel it. “That rubs off on me and any support like that really gives me that extra incentive to do well and entertain. “The atmosphere here is in the top three of all the events that we play in. “Especially when you get down to that one table set-up, whether that’s against Ronnie or whoever else. “It’s amazing in that arena, especially when it’s full.” Only the likes of all-time greats Steve Davis and Stephen Hendry have won the same event four times in a row. But Trump played down expectations after a seven week hiatus between tournaments. “It’s so different playing pool as opposed to snooker for me,” admitted Trump, who played in the US Open Pool Championship during snooker’s lay off. “Being here there’s so much expectation on me, everyone expects me to win or do well every time I get to the table.” O’Sullivan revealed he’s battling boredom in his first event back this season. The disinterested six-time world champion beat veteran Andy Hicks 4-1 to reach the last 32. Rocket admitted: “I was very bored out there. I just wanted to get out of there as quick as possible.” World champion Mark Selby survived an almighty scare to keep his title bid on track beating Can yupeng 4-3 on the final black. Fergal O’Brien lost 4-0 to England’s James Cahill.

44 IRISH DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 12.10.2021 Courtois: We’re just like robots By James Nursey THIBAUT COURTOIS has slammed football authorities for treating players like “robots” and putting cash before safety. The Real Madrid goalkeeper (above) played for Belgium in both of their Nations League finals matches in Turin during the international break. The former Chelsea man, 29, has now played 14 matches this season for club and country since the Euros finished in July. He is fuming with UEFA after a much-changed Belgium side lost to Italy in the third-placed play-off on Sunday, a game he described as “pointless”. He feels the time has come for stars to speak out about the packed schedule. He said: “Top players will get injured and injured and injured. We are not robots. It’s just more and more games, and less rest for us. Nobody cares.” Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes is one of the world’s most overused stars, according to world players’ group FIFPro. Their report revealed he has barely missed a game for club or country since joining United in January 2020 and claimed his 90 games in 20 months was too much. It added: “Between November 2020 and April 2021, his share of minutes in the critical zone did not once drop below 68 per cent and was close to 100 per cent on multiple occasions.” DMEEIR NEWCASTLE CAN NOW THINK BIG PICTURES: sTeVe CommiNs FUTURE IS HAZY Steve Bruce is running training for now – but is not expected to stay long BORROWED TYNE... Bruce takes his first session under the Toon’s new owners... but there won’t be many more By simoN bird @SimonBird_ STEVE BrucE survived his first training session under Saudi ownership – after Amanda Staveley visited the playing squad. The veteran boss put his players through their paces after a chat with Staveley, whose PCP Capital Partners firm have taken charge of the day-to-day operations at St James’ Park. Newcastle stars including Allan Saint-Maximin, skipper Jamaal Lascelles and Federico Fernandez all met the new 10 per cent stake holders. Keeper Mark Gillespie (top) was among those who trained. It remains unclear whether Bruce will take charge of his 1,000th game as a manager when Tottenham visit on Sunday. That will see a sell-out stadium for the unveiling of the new ownership and there will be a senior Saudi A r a b i a n presence for the first time since the buyout. Hoping to attend is Yasir Al- Rumayyan, governor of the state-funded Public Investment Fund which has an 80 per cent stake in the £305million deal announced on Thursday. He is now Toon non-executive chairman. The speed of the takeover, resurrected in the past fortnight, took the club’s football operations by surprise. They had a plan in place for who would take over as boss 18 months ago, but candidates Rafa Benitez and Mauricio Pochettino are now at Everton and Paris Saint- Germain respectively. Bruce will not be in charge for long, and some fans were asking why he was not immediately shipped out. Frank McParland, f ormerly of Rangers, Burnley and Brentford, is PCP’s football advisor, and is helping with the managerial search. Former Dortmund chief Lucien Favre, Brendan Rodgers, Frank Lampard and Rangers’ Steven Gerrard are under consideration. They also need a powerful well- connected sporting director, and ex-PSG chief Antero Henrique and former Schalke and Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick are being interviewed. Early transfer targets include Burnley defender James Tarkowski and Juventus benchwarmer Aaron Ramsey. Staveley (below) toured the club’s much-derided training ground with husband and business partner Mehrdad Ghodoussi. On Friday she said: “The training ground is really awful and needs a huge amount of investment, and luckily that is one area we are not restricted. “You need medical facilities. There is no point in having fantastic players if there is nowhere for them to train.” Callum Wilson and Jonjo Shelvey trained and could be fit for the weekend.

Rashford has yet to play this season after having shoulder surgery in the summer following Euro 2020. The England forward (above), who resumed training last month, is back two weeks ahead of schedule for the Premier League clash at Leicester. His injury return is welcome news for Solskjaer with United losing three of their last six matches in all competitions. Rashford, who scored twice in a behindclosed-doors friendly against Blackburn, said: “I wouldn’t say my recovery is coming to an end, because obviously I have to keep looking after it. But I’m in a much better place physically and mentally. “Now I’m fully free of that, I feel much better physically and mentally.” rams desperate to cut points penalty By JaMes Nursey DerBy’S administrators are launching a late action against the club’s 12-point penalty.

By JohN Cross ALEX OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN fears he might have to quit Liverpool for more regular game time. Oxlade-Chamberlain, 28, has made just one Premier League start this season and would be reluctant to leave Anfield but remains ambitious and wants to play. The situation could alert his former club Arsenal as they look to strengthen their squad and he was a very popular player during his time at the Emirates. The England international (above) started the season and the first game at Norwich on the back of an impressive pre-season after which he was hoping to get his Liverpool career back on track. But since then, the Ox has struggled for game time. He played as a substitute and in the Champions League and Carabao Cup but he is keen to get himself back in the England frame. bond is LiVinG The dReAM LIFE , GLOVE & HAPPINESS ...It’S ALL HERE IN LA Ex-Baggies keeper Jonathan says way out west is best From Neil McleMaN in California @NeilmClemaN JONATHAN BOND has swapped the bench at West Brom for the beach in California and says other British players should go west to find their own American dream. The former Wales and England Under-21 keeper spent more than two years at The Hawthorns while only playing six cup games. But since his January transfer to LA Galaxy, the 28-year-old has become an MLS A-Lister with a great lifestyle and a model girlfriend (right). “To wake up every morning to sunshine, you are immediately in a better mood than in England,” he said. “I live in Century City so I can be at the beach in 10-15 minutes. “You can go skiing and to the beach on the same day if you plan it right. I moved here single, then I met my girlfriend Kyra Santoro within a month of being here and she’s been a big, big reason why I felt very settled very quickly.” The former Watford, Reading, ..and the money’s not bad either! Gillingham and Peterborough keeper has also finally got his hands on a regular first-team place after never making a league appearance with Sam Johnstone between the sticks at the Baggies. “When two seasons go by it’s, ‘OK, I do need to find somewhere to play now,’” he added. Bond confessed it “wasn’t really that much of a difficult decision” to turn down offers from Bristol City and Blackburn to cross the Atlantic. “ A f t e r Covid, I think the Championship is having a bit of a tough tim e w hi l e MLS is thriving. And it is nice to be recognised and have the respect of From Neil McleMaN CARLOS VELA and Javier Hernandez are the two highest-paid players in MLS but LA Galaxy keeper Jonathan Bond says publishing salaries is “bizarre”. The MLS Players Association releases a list of players salaries every year and it is available online for fans and team-mates to check and compare. A team’s basic salary cap is $4.9million (£3.59m) in 2021. The Designated Player Rule – people in and around the club.” Bond is keeping up the British and Irish tradition at Galaxy started by David Beckham – who has a statue outside the stadium – and continued by Stevie Gerrard, Robbie Keane and Ashley Cole. In the stats-obsessed States, Bond ranks third in MLS for saves – 100 – and has three “shutouts” in 25 games. He is also keeping Jurgen Klinsmann’s son, Jonathan, out of the team. Bond has a US p a s s p o r t through his Seattle-born mother, Elena. But after representing both England and Wales youth levels, he is not sure if the rules will now allow him to play for the USA. “I need lawyers to look known as the Beckham Rule after the England star signed for the Galaxy from Real Madrid in 2007 – allows each of the 27 franchises to sign three players outside the cap. The large Hispanic community in California means the two Mexicans are the big stars. Ex-Arsenal and West Brom forward Vela, the captain of LAFC, earns $6.3m (£4.6m) with ex-Manchester United and West Ham forward Chicharito on $6m (£4.4m). The average base salary this into it,” he said. But Bond is certain other Brits should look to play in the MLS. “I would recommend coming here, big time,” he added. “It is an amazing platform. I think that’s shown from the amount of players that are now being bought from MLS by teams in Europe. “And if you’re a younger player, you’re allowed to develop here, given time to breath. Things that aren’t as short term so managers aren’t as worried about losing three games in a row.” Galaxy have gone nine games without a win since August but are still in sixth place in the Western Conference, with the top seven qualifying for the play-offs. “Our next game against Portland Timbers this weekend is huge,” he said. It is certainly No Time to Die for Bond who was invited to the world premiere of the 007 movie before it was switched from LA to London. “It must have been because of the name,” he added. “Someone must have thought it was funny to say ‘We should invite him.’” season is $398,725 (£292,299). Bond signed a two-year deal with options worth a basic $450,000 (£329,888) and a guaranteed total of $501,875 (£367,917). Bond said: “I don’t like making pay public because the day they come out, you don’t need it. You’re trying to keep everyone together in the changing room. I’m talking of what potentially it could do. It takes a strong changing room for that not to affect people. The whole thing is bizarre.”

The England boss met Wenger (above) two months ago and was open to changes which would see a World Cup every two years. But he said “they seem to change every time” he gets an update. One of FIFA chief Wenger’s ideas is to have just one international window. But Southgate warned: “What if your player was injured in October and you miss that one month or however long a break’s supposed to be? He doesn’t play international football for a year. That doesn’t seem to make sense to me. ”I saw some initial proposals and I’m not quite sure exactly what’s on the table now.” RIcE SO HAPPY TO TAkE IT ALL On dEc By John CRoSS DECLAN RICE has become a “sponge” as he is desperate to improve as a player.

Southgate said: “He is a real sponge for tactical information and observations on his game and he is desperate to be the best he can possibly be. Even though he is young he has got tremendous leadership qualities. “He is captaining his club at an incredibly young age. So you can see all the signs of what might be possible. “There are the experiences he’s been through and because of his mentality he is going to improve even more.” HURT WILL FIRE US UP SAYS ROSSI By MIKE WALTERS HUNGARy coach Marco Rossi admitted last month’s 4-0 defeat by England “hurt” so much it extinguished the fire of their Euro 2020 thrills. Rossi (above) and his side were unlucky not to progress from a tough group in the summer, drawing with France and Germany as they bowed out to a cruel late equaliser in Munich. But he admitted they will settle for walking off the Wembley pitch “at least with our chins up” tonight. Rossi said: “England in the second half especially showed all the potential, they were able to score in all situations – you could say teach us a lesson. “The 4-0 hurt us and our fans, too.

Gareth Southgate and Frank Lampard were the chairman and vice-chairman of the Mason fan club. Now that fan club is truly worldwide. To follow his landmark achievements on the pitch, which included winning the Champions League with Chelsea, Mount has been nominated on the shortlist, albeit a long shortlist, for the Ballon d’Or. That means some very good judges rank Mount amongst the top 30 players in the world. And while he won’t be winning the gong this time, the significance of being nominated is not lost on Mount. He said: “It is such a special thing. As a kid growing up, you look at the Ballon d’Or and how it is the top of the top from a personal point of view. To be nominated in the top 30 in the world is a dream come true. “It’s special to be among names that I’ve looked up to as a kid. To be alongside them shows that you can never stop working hard. “And it is just the beginning of a long journey. Once you get that feeling of winning something and performing at the highest level, you gain that extra confidence to help you set new targets. That is something I have always done, mentally-wise. “A Ballon d’Or nomination is one of the best things you can achieve as a player but I want to achieve more and more.” Mount, 22, is not the only member of Southgate’s squad to be in the Ballon d’Or mix.

But when olympic champions Hungary arrived on the back of a 24-match unbeaten run and with Nandor Hidegkuti and Ferenc Puskas in their lineup, England were 4-1 down inside 27 minutes. The visitors were streets ahead of walter winterbottom’s outdated formation and squad, which was still picked by an FA committee. worse was to come for winterbottom. Six months later England were humiliated 7-1 in Budapest, still their heaviest defeat. HUNGARY 2, ENGLAND 1 May 31, 1962, Rancagua Hopes were high but England had a depressing start to their world Cup bid in Chile. They fell behind when keeper Ron Springett misjudged Lajos Tichy’s innocuous shot. Ron Flowers levelled with a penalty, but Florian Albert grabbed the winner.

Mason’s jabbed after Euro woe MASON MOUNT revealed he has been vaccinated after his own Covid nightmare at the Euros. The England star was forced to self-isolate after coming into close contact with Chelsea team-mate Billy Gilmour who tested positive after the Scotland clash at Wembley. That ruled Mount and Ben Chilwell out of the final group match with the Czech Republic and neither played against Germany after being isolated for ten days. Mount was back for the final but, while other players have been reluctant to get jabbed or join the vaccination debate, the Chelsea midfielder had no hesitation. “I’m double vaccinated now,” said Mount. “Going through that experience, missing the game, a top, top game, kind of did have an effect on my decision.” yoUng lions thank emile Andorra U-21 0 England U-21 1 Euro under-21 qualifying group 7 By siMon BiRD RHIAN BREWSTER was sent-off and it was left to Arsenal star Emile Smith- Rowe to rescue a win as England struggled. Smith-Rowe netted his first goal for the Under-21s, finishing a lightning counter attack and pinpoint pass by Liverpool’s Curtis Jones... and it came from Andorra’s only corner kick. It was a slog for England as Sheffield United striker Brewster was dismissed after 56 minutes following a clash with defender Eric Vales. Brewster, who scored for Lee Carsley’s men against Slovenia last week, left the pitch furious and finger pointing at ref Igor Stojchevski. He ruled Brewster had elbowed Vales as he tried to shield the ball, but it hardly even appeared to be a foul. The 21-year-old was shown a second yellow card after he had been booked for a late boot on Alex Alonso. The young Lions struggled to break down a resilient, packed Andorra defence and their highly motivated midfield. A year ago, the Under-21s twice went ahead but could only draw 3-3 on the same pitch. Despite having the talents of Smith Rowe and Man City starlet Cole Palmer, alongside £23million Brewster up front, England laboured. Pick of the bunch was tricky Palmer who did well wide on the right, and Smith Rowe took his chance, with only the keeper to beat, very well.

48 IRISH DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 12.10.2021 estonia 0 wales 1 Moore 12 FROM JAMES NURSEY in Estonia KIEFFER MOORE was Wales’ match-winner to keep up the pressure on the Czech Republic in the race for second place. But the big striker was later subbed with blurred vision after also collecting a booking ruling him out of Belarus’ visit next month. Moore’s close-range tap-in was enough to secure four points this month from a double-header of away games in Prague and Tallinn. The Czechs remain second but Wales could leap above them with four points from their last two games, including Belgium at home to finish with. Just as in their 2-2 draw in the Czech Republic, Wales showed plenty of enterprise and grit. But they were forced to hang on in the second half before prevailing to keep alive hopes of second spot and a play-off place. Estonia went into the match off the back of their first victory in the group against Belarus. But Rob Page kept to his declared intention of fielding an attacking line-up to go for the win. He gave a full Wales debut to former non-league wing-back Sorba Thomas and promoted Connor Roberts and Harry Wilson into the starting line-up. Page was rewarded with a bright opening from the visitors as Roberts curled a left-foot shot from distance which Arsenal keeper Karl Hein tipped over. From Dan James’ corner, Joe Rodon won the initial header before Aaron Ramsey had a header stopped on the line. It left Cardiff striker Moore with a right-foot tap-in after 12 minutes for his seventh international goal in his 23rd appearance. Moore might have added another but Hein got down well at his near post to stop the striker’s near-post flick. But Wales still needed Joe Rodon to clear off the line in the 21st minute after Wilson’s poor pass on the edge of the box gave Sergei Zenjov a sight of goal. It was a shocking self-inflicted scare for Wales, which followed hot on the heels of Danny Ward’s own goal howler against the Czechs. But Wales escaped and could have added to their advantage from a Wilson free-kick which he curled straight at Hein as the visitors dominated possession. After the break, improved hosts Estonia might have levelled but Erik Sorga headed just over from Markus Poom’s free-kick. Moore also took a whack in the face for his efforts in the home penalty area after tussling with Marten Kuusk. But the referee waved away Welsh appeals for a penalty and later booked Moore, meaning the striker will miss Belarus’ visit next. In a tense finale, the visitors needed keeper Ward to make a fine one-handed save in the 77th minute from Vlasiy Sinyavskiy’s curler as Wales hung on for a crucial victory. ratings qualifying group E le coq arena, tallinn Kieffer Moore is first to the ball to put Wales ahead after just 12 minutes MOORE KEEPS ’EM IN CZECH Wales win puts pressure on rivals in battle to be second By JAMES NURSEY EStONIa walES Hein .........................7 teniste ....................6 Kuusk ......................6 tamm ......................6 paskotsi ..................6 pikk..........................5 poom .......................6 mets ........................6 Kait ..........................6 Zenjov .....................6 sorga .......................6 SUBS sinyavskiy (pikk 57) 6, ojamaa (teniste 76), Kirss (sorga 81), Kallaste (Kait 82), Vastsuk (Zenjov 82) Ward ........................7 mepham ..................7 rodon ......................8 ampadu ...................6 C roberts ................7 allen ........................7 ramsey ...................7 Wilson ......................7 thomas....................7 moore ......................7 James......................7 SUBS Harris (moore 71), morrell (ramsey 80), gunter (C roberts 83), Johnson (Wilson 83) REFEREE: sandro scharer (sWi) motm JOE RODON wORld CuP qualIfyINg gROuP E p W D l f a pts Belgium 6 5 1 0 21 4 16 Czech rep 7 3 2 2 12 9 11 Wales 6 3 2 1 8 7 11 Estonia 6 1 1 4 8 16 4 Belarus 7 1 0 6 6 19 3 SCRAPPING Joe Allen and Joe Rodon (right) in action 1-0 ovER thE toP Ethan Ampadu tries his luck in Tallinn last night REsults & FIxtuREs FIFA World Cup European Qualifying Group E Belarus (0) .......... 0 CzeCh rep (1) ..... 2 Schick 22, Hlozek 65 estonia (0) ........... 0 Wales (1)............ 1 Moore 12 p W D l F a pts Belgium .................... 6 5 1 0 21 4 16 Czech rep ................. 7 3 2 2 12 9 11 Wales ........................ 6 3 2 1 8 7 11 estonia ...................... 6 1 1 4 8 16 4 Belarus ..................... 7 1 0 6 6 19 3 European Qualifying Group G hollanD (3) ......... 6 GiBraltar (0) ..... 0 van Dijk 9 Depay 21, 45 (pen) Dumfries 48 Danjuma 75, Malen 86 latvia (0) ............. 1 turkey (0) .......... 2 Demiral 70 (og) Dursun 76 B Yilmaz 90 (pen) norWay (1) .......... 2 MonteneGro (0) 0 Elyounoussi 29, 90 p W D l F a pts holland ..................... 8 6 1 1 29 6 19 norway ...................... 8 5 2 1 15 6 17 turkey....................... 7 3 3 1 17 14 12 Montenegro ............... 8 3 2 3 11 11 11 latvia ........................ 7 1 2 4 7 11 5 Gibraltar ................... 8 0 0 8 3 34 0 European Qualifying Group H Croatia (1) .......... 2 slovakia (2) ....... 2 Kramaric 25 Schranz 20 Modric 71 Haraslin 45 Cyprus (1) ........... 2 Malta (0) ............ 2 Papoulis 6 Z Muscat 53 Sotiriou 80 Degabriele 90 slovenia (1) ......... 1 russia (2) ........... 2 Ilicic 40 Diveev 28 Dzhikija 32 p W D l F a pts russia ....................... 8 6 1 1 13 5 19 Croatia ...................... 8 5 2 1 13 3 17 slovakia .................... 8 2 4 2 9 8 10 slovenia .................... 8 3 1 4 9 9 10 Malta ........................ 8 1 2 5 8 17 5 Cyprus ...................... 8 1 2 5 3 13 5 Group J iCelanD (2) .......... 4 lieCh’stein (0) ... 0 Thordarson 19 Gudmundsson 35 (p), 79 (p) A Gudjohnsen 89 n MaCeDonia (0) .. 0 GerMany (0) ....... 4 Havertz 50 Werner 70, 73 Musiala 83 roMania (1) ......... 1 arMenia (0) ........ 0 Mitrita 26 p W D l F a pts Germany ................... 8 7 0 1 23 3 21 romania .................... 8 4 1 3 11 8 13 n Macedonia ............. 8 3 3 2 15 10 12 armenia .................... 8 3 3 2 8 11 12 iceland ...................... 8 2 2 4 11 15 8 European Under-21 Championship Qualifying Group Seven anDorra u21 (0).. 0 enGlanD (0) ........ 1 Smith-Rowe 67 p W D l F a pts Czech rep ................. 3 3 0 0 6 0 9 albania ..................... 4 3 0 1 7 4 9 england ..................... 3 2 1 0 5 2 7 slovenia .................... 4 1 1 2 3 5 4 kosovo u21 ............... 3 1 0 2 2 3 3 andorra u21 ............. 5 0 0 5 0 9 0 Snooker NortherN IrelaNd opeN (Belfast)—1st rd: A Burden (Eng) bt Y SiJun (Chn) 4-2; L Haotian (Chn) bt A Carter (Eng) 4-2; M Mann (Eng) bt X Guodong (Chn) 4-2; L Brecel (Bel) bt W Liang (Chn) 4-2; A Carty (Eng) bt T Ford (Eng) walkover; Y Bingtao (Chn) bt D Jones (Wal) 4-3; J Cahill (Eng) bt F O’Brien (Irl) 4-0; M King (Eng) bt B Hawkins (Eng) 4-0; M Selby (Eng) bt C Yupeng (Chn) 4-3, R O’Sullivan (Eng) bt A Hicks (Eng) 4-1, O Lines (Eng) bt B Woollaston (Eng) 4-0.

irishmirror.ie DMEEIR TUESDAY 12.10.2021 IRISH DAILY MIRROR 49 WORLD CUP QUaLifieR INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY ANYTHING LESS IS A KOP OUT.. Kelleher: Of course I’m aiming to be No.1 for Liverpool.. there’s no point in me being there otherwise By MIchAeL ScULLy Caoimhín Kelleher isn’t shy about having his sights set on being liverpool’s no.1. Kelleher, 22, will hit another career milestone tonight when he starts his first senior international for Ireland. He has played second fiddle to another rising netminder, his former Ireland under-21 colleague Gavin Bazunu, but the Corkman is prepared to play the long game for club and country. Kelleher made his Liverpool debut last year and acquitted himself well. Jurgen Klopp has promoted him to be the club’s second choice keeper behind Allison Becker and he kept a clean sheet in the Carabao Cup against Norwich three weeks ago. With Becker likely to be late back due to quarantine issues after playing for Brazil, Kelleher could make his first Premier League appearance of the season at Watford next Saturday. After turning down the chance of a loan move to Holland a year ago, he is ambitious to push on at Anfield. “There’s no point being somewhere and not thinking you could be number one,” stated Kelleher. “You have to have that mentality and I want to push on and be number one – and hopefully if I get a chance I’ll take it. “I’m just focused on when I do get games for Liverpool that I can put in a good performance and show that I am capable of playing at that level. “I’m always ready to go on, but I don’t think there has been any injury. If there is I’ll be ready to come on.” Kelleher insisted yesterday he had “no regrets” about passing up the chance to go on loan, even though Bazunu’s decision to do so put the 19-year-old into pole position for game time with Ireland. Reflecting on that opportunity in Holland, Kelleher recalled: “It was quite close and maybe if a few injuries hadn’t happened, I’d have gone. “I think since I didn’t go on loan, I got my chance with Liverpool and did quite well. “You always have to progress and not be stagnant. So the next step for me was to be number two, and I’ve taken that next step so I’m happy.” i’ll just keep at it Caoimhin Kelleher working hard during ireland’s training session yesterday Of course, Kelleher is also benefiting from the fact he is mixing it with the likes of Mo Salah (inset) and Sadio Mane every day. “Some of the best players in the world are training at Liverpool, so it can only improve you as a player by training at that level,” he said. “It has helped me a lot and I just look forward to training every day, trying to improve and to better myself. “It’s great to be in and around that and learn from it. It means a lot to me – I’m so happy to be going in every day and learning from players with such a high quality.” I WOULDN’t Be GAVIN OFF BAD VIBeS By MIchAeL ScULLy Caoimhín Kelleher insists he has no issue with Gavin Bazunu getting the nod ahead of him at present. Bazunu (left) started in all but the opening game against Serbia in this World Cup qualifying campaign, having seized his chance when both Darren randolph and next in line Kelleher were injured. When asked how it feels to watch his colleague in action, Kelleher responded: “i don’t know what you expect me to say, but i am happy for him, i like to see him do well. “The goalkeeping group is quite close, we don’t wish anything bad to happen – we all train collectively together to get the three points and if he makes a save i am just as happy as any player or fan watching, i want to get the win as well. “We have known each other for three years maybe, and we get on well together. “There are quite a few of us REP. OF IRELAND v qAtAR AvIvA stADIum, 7.45Pm who were playing for the under-21s and made the transition to the senior team at the same time, so we are quite close. “We know how good we all are, so we just want to make that next step and put some wins together and drive on from there.” the FUtURe IS BRIGht NI manager Ian Baraclough Boss Bara is staying so Bullish Bulgaria v N. ireland Group C, Sofia, 7.45pm By DARReN FULLeRtON NORTHERN Ireland’s World Cup dream may be fading, but Ian Baraclough insists he has seen bright signs of progress during his time in charge. Assuming Switzerland either draw or win in Lithuania tonight, anything other than maximum points in Bulgaria will end all hopes of securing second in the group. The outside chance of reaching Qatar via the playoffs will be dead and buried, although Baraclough believes there’s still plenty to be positive about moving forward. The 50-year-old, whose 18-month contract expires at the end of the campaign, said: “I think we are in a good place. I think the future is bright for Northern Irish football, I really do. “We have found that we have more numbers than we probably had a year ago and we have players who are capable of stepping up into the squad. “I have more players to choose from now and it certainly gives me more of a headache picking a squad.” Baraclough hasn’t been afraid to blood youngsters with Millwall defender Dan Ballard, Preston’s Ali McCann and Liverpool teenager Conor Bradley all handed debuts on his watch. The likes of Blackpool striker Shayne Lavery, Cardiff City defender Ciaron Brown and Morecambe midfielder Alfie McCalmont have also been given more game time. “We’ve got to be careful not to put too much pressure on the young players… but clearly we have seen some progression in that,” he said. “We have seen performances that back up the decision to throw them in. “Conor (Bradley) is the youngest in the squad, but we put him on against Switzerland and we can rely on him. “If I feel it is right I put them in – I have no fear of doing that.”

That means picking up a win today in Montenegro ahead of a crucial doubleheader next month against the top two sides in Group F. “We don’t take too much notice of the table yet, it really is game to game, but there are only 10 games in it. It’s a sprint and you need to win your games,” said Crawford. “Sweden have come here to Montenegro and won, and we have to match that. Yeah, we need to win. “The pressure is on, but that’s what you want. Players have to learn how to operate in an environment eQUaLISer Aidomo Emakhu earned Irish draw where there are must-win games. That’s all part of the development. “With November being such a huge window, we want to be there or thereabouts regarding points (at that stage). “The table after November will be quite clear for everybody to see (in terms of) who the frontrunners are, and who has the best chance of qualifying for the finals. “This is a very important game for us.” •SHAMROCK ROVERS striker Aidomo Emakhu earned Ireland’s U19s a second draw against Sweden in three days.

irishmirror.ie/sport ireland v qatar I AM GOING TO BUILD IT FROM BACK Kenny feels case for defence is clear & obvious by PaUL O’hehIr STEPHEN KENNY has revealed why he is going back to the future so that Ireland can be at their best against top nations. The Republic of Ireland boss is a deep thinker on the game, but was also developing a tinkerman reputation as he experimented with formations. For now, he has settled on a flexible 3-4-2-1 set-up that was first trialled against tonight’s opponents Qatar back in their March friendly draw in Hungary. It is, perhaps, no coincidence that the formation is also used by Chelsea, where new Ireland coach Anthony Barry is one of Thomas Tuchel’s chief lieutenants. But yesterday Kenny admitted he has settled on that way of playing in order to maximise Ireland’s strong defensive unit. Throughout his career, the Dubliner has always wanted attacking players in his teams with creativity and flair. And he believes that his current crop of forwards can eventually find their rhythm at senior international level. But while that is a work in progress, Kenny appreciates Ireland have to style their game on their strongest weapon right now. With Shane Duffy back at the peak of his powers and John Egan showing why Kenny has so much faith in him, it’s the smart call. Particularly so with a promising cast of young centre-backs coming through. Ahead of tonight’s Qatar clash, Kenny said: “It’s the realisation – it’s possibly fair to say – that 60 per cent to 70 per cent of our best players are defenders. “There are also three emerging centre-backs coming through at their clubs, Andrew Omobamidele, Dara O’Shea and Nathan Collins. “We’ve then got players who can play wingback at their clubs. We can shape our team around that and it can be tactically flexible against the better nations. “The flexibility within that gives us a better chance against the better nations. What we’ve got to improve on is that aspect against teams we’re capable of beating. “We changed to a back three in March and it has been used in all the games, bar Andorra when we played a back four. “We have varied it by playing 3-4-1-2 but the first time we played a 3-4-2-1 was actually against Qatar in March.” But while building a team around its strongest components makes sense, Kenny won’t be ignoring the other elements. And he is hoping Callum Robinson’s superb brace in Azerbaijan is the catalyst for a higher goal return from the forwards. “ H e i s someone Doherty DMEEIR who has the capacity to create and score goals,” said Kenny of the West Brom ace. “He’s not necessarily a prolific scorer of goals but he got a high number at Preston and scored goals this year for West Brom, he’s done well so far before he got his illness. “Hopefully he can have a good impact, he’s at that age now where he’s at the peak of his career and hopefully he can be someone who scores goals for us.” Jon Walters wasn’t prolific at club level but scored 14 valuable goals for Ireland and Kenny said of Robinson: “I see there’s a sort of comparison with Walters. “They both played wide and as central strikers although Jon Walters scored goals even from the wide right position in that campaign. “Callum likewise played on the right the other day but when he got his goals, he went up front. “It could be argued his best position is Probable Kelleher line-up Omobamidele Duffy Hourihane Robinson Parrott TV Times: Live on RTE2 from 4pm Hendrick Egan Knight TUESDAY 12.10.2021 IRISH DAILY MIRROR off the left where he’s played a lot of his football at Preston.” Kenny has pinned enormous hope on Adam Idah’s 20-year-old shoulders and the Norwich City striker started the last four internationals. But the prolific scorer at underage level – 34 goals in 61 internationals from U15s to U21s – has yet to break his senior duck. He was whipped off after an hour in Baku, although had been laid down with a fever that saw him confined to his hotel room in Azerbaijan two days before the game. Kenny must decide whether to rest him tonight or persist in the hope that a first goal could set the wheels in motion for more. “He’s okay and available. He still did a good job for the team on Saturday and led the line. “Certainly, he has had bigger impacts on games, in the last window for sure. But it was a selfless act, getting out there and putting himself forward, having been struck down. “He put in a selfless hour for the team and that was appreciated.” Stevens 51 aviva stadium tonight, 7.45pm DOUBTFUL Josh Cullen and Daryl Horgan are struggling A RHYTHM QATAR FOR IRISH BOSS by name here STEPHEN KENNY has ruled out making sweeping changes against Qatar tonight as he wants to keep the momentum going. The Ireland boss is determined to go into next month’s final World Cup qualifiers at home to Portugal and away to Luxembourg on a high. He said: “First of all we would like a good performance and we’ll have to earn a victory against Qatar. “Then we’ll take on Portugal and it’ll be a great occasion. We would want two good results in November between Portugal and Luxembourg, that’s certainly our objective.” But Josh Cullen and Daryl Horgan are likely to miss out tonight as they nurse knee and ankle injuries respectively. Jason Knight (below) is available after missing Saturday’s 3-0 win in Azerbaijan having been struck down with a fever in Baku. Kenny said: “There won’t be wholesale changes. It’s a great game for us to try and build on Saturday night. “Qatar are like a club team in that they’ve played 17 games since March between Copa America, the Asian Cup (holders) and also in the CONCACAF getting to the semi-finals. “It’s an interesting challenge for us and we want to do well. “We’ve got a home crowd, a 25,000 sellout (capacity is restricted) which for a friendly is terrific. “We would like to win the game.”

10 IRISH DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 12.10.2021 DMEEIR EXTRAPUZZLES Logic Using the grid below, can you work out who performed each dance? Solutions at the end Five couples are taking part in a dance showcase. Each couple has decided to perform a different dance to show off their dancing skills. Two members of the audience are discussing the dances after the show. “My favourite performance was Camille’s dance. Her waltz was one minute longer than Erin’s performance,” said Andy. “Who was Camille partnered with?” asked Monique. “I can’t quite recall. Her partner definitely wasn’t Dafydd or Amir,” replied Andy. “Bradley and Daisy’s tango was the shortest performance of the five, which is a shame as it was very entertaining,” said Monique. “I believe Ezra performed either the rumba or the jive. His performance was shorter than Alexa’s,” added Andy. “The performance of the jive lasted for three minutes and thirty seconds,” said Monique. “You have a good memory. I recall that the performance of the foxtrot lasted for under three minutes and was not performed by Amir,” replied Andy. If each dance couple consists of one male and one female dancer, can you determine who performed each dance, and how long each performance was?

Roll out the pastry to just larger than a 30cm diameter ovenproof frying pan and use the pan as a template to cut out a round of pastry. Leave in the fridge, or a cool place while you prepare everything else. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add 2 the carrots and parsnips and cook for 5 mins. Drain and set aside to dry off slightly. Heat the oil and 1tbsp of the butter in your pan and cook the sliced shallots and grated parsnips for 1-2 mins over a medium-high heat until just starting to brown, then add a good splash of water to the pan. Stir to scrape up any brown bits, turn the heat down slightly, cover and cook for 4-5 mins, stirring every so often. The parsnips should be tender. Add the herbs and garlic and cook for another minute, then tip into a bowl, scraping out as well as you can. Season a little and set aside. 3 Add the sugar and vinegar to the pan and bring to the boil. Cook for a few minutes until syrupy, then stir in the remaining butter. Set aside to cool slightly, then arrange the vegetables in the pan, fanning them out. Top with the herby shallot and parsnip mixture, pushing it into any spaces there may be. Lay the pastry over the top of the vegetables and push in the edges a little. Place in the oven and bake for 30-35 mins until puffed and deep golden brown. While the tart bakes, put the nuts, 4 sugar and butter in a small frying pan with a pinch of salt. Cook over a medium-high heat for about 5 mins, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved and coated the nuts. Add the rosemary for the last minute. Tip out on to a piece of baking parchment and leave to cool for a few minutes. 5 Once the tart is baked, remove from the oven and carefully turn out on to a serving board. Scrape out any bits that are left in the tin and add back to the tart. Bash the nuts to break them up and scatter over, along with the crumbled cheese.
