SOCCER

Aidan Keena's first-half strike gave them a 1-0 victory against the Scottish Premiership side at Fir Park last night.



Saint Pat's will go to Slovenia next week with their tie delicately poised against Mura.

Chris Forrester scored just before the hour to earn a 1-1 draw for the Saints in last night's first leg at Richmond Park.

Dundalk have the chance to cut the gap to SSE Airtricity League Premier Division leaders Shamrock Rovers, to six points this evening.

The Lilywhites host second from bottom Finn Harps at Oriel Park.

First Division leaders Cork City are away to Wexford with second place Galway on the road to Athlone.

Waterford welcome Longford to the RSC while Cobh face Bray Wanderers.

Eight-time winners Germany are through to the semi-finals of the Women's Euros after a 2-0 victory over Austria.

England will find out their last-four opponents tonight - as Sweden take on Belgium in their quarter-final.

ATHLETICS

Donegal’s Mark English has narrowly missed out on a place in the 800 metres final at the World Athletics Championships.

The Finn Valley club man was fifth in his semi-final in Oregon overnight.

Louise Shanahan didn’t progress to the semis after finishing fifth in her 800 metres heat.

RUGBY

English rugby chief Bill Sweeney says Ireland head-coach Andy Farrell is "highly regarded" by the English RFU.

The former England dual-code international is reportedly one of the potential candidates to succeed Eddie Jones after next year's World Cup.

Farrell is under contract with Ireland until the end of the tournament in France and Sweeney says both Farrell and Mike Catt are "doing very well" in their current roles.

GOLF

Leona Maguire and Stephanie Meadow have tee-ed off their second rounds this morning, at the Evian Championship.

Maguire is one-under-par with Meadow level-par.

Darren Clarke and Padraig Harrington are both in contention, heading into day two at the Senior Open.

Clarke is due out on course from five-under-par at 8.40am - he’s currently just one shot off the lead.

Harrington will tee off this afternoon from four-under-par.

CYCLING

Jonas Vingegaard just needs to avoid trouble over the remaining three stages and he’ll be crowned Tour de France winner.

The Dane takes a 3 minute 26 second lead into today’s 188 kilometre ride to Cahors.

RACING

The going is good, good to firm in places this morning ahead of a seven-race meeting at Cork, where the first is off at 5.15pm.

It’s a 5.30pm start for Down Royal’s seven-race card.
