Team Ireland's 7th medal of the games

Gaelic Games

Busy weekend on the local GAA front - there is one Tom Cross Junior Football Championship fixture this evening, Grangenolvin face Rheban in St. Laurence's, at 8.30pm.

Due to a bereavement in the Castlemitchell Club, tonight's fixture between Ardclough & Castlemitchell has been postponed until Monday.

KFM will have live coverage of all the weekend's games both tomorrow & Sunday, from midday.

Paralympics

Cyclists Katie-George Dunlevy and Eve McCrystal have won their second gold medal of the Paralympic Games.

They claimed victory in the B road race in Tokyo in a time of 2 hours 35.53 seconds.

With 2 golds and a silver for the entire Games, Dunlevy and McCrystal have surpassed their performance in Rio.

It's Team Ireland's seventh medal of the Games.


Earlier, Martin Gordon and Eamonn Byrne withdrew from their B road race.

Richelle (PR: Rochelle) Timothy finished 11th in the C1 to 3 road race.

Ronan Grimes was 11th in the C4 to 5 road race.

In canoeing, Patrick O’Leary ended 9th in the KL3 category, winning the B Final.

Swimmer Patrick Flanagan was 17th in the SB6 100 metres backstroke.

Soccer

England manager Gareth Southgate says the racist abuse of his players is 'unacceptable'.

Raheem Sterling and Jude Bellingham were subjected to monkey chants from Hungary supporters last night in Budapest.

England won the Group I World Cup qualifier 4-nil, with Sterling opening the scoring.

It's just the latest in a string of racist and homophobic incidents involving Hungary fans.


Elsewhere last night, Northern Ireland collected a first win in Group C with a 4-1 victory away to Lithuania.


Meanwhile, goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu has urged Republic of Ireland fans to get behind the team.

The Boys in Green will play in front of supporters for the first time in almost 2 years against Azerbaijan in Dublin tomorrow.

Bazunu says the performance against Portugal can give everyone heart:



The Republic of Ireland's under-21's begin their European Championship qualifying campaign this afternoon.

Jim Crawford's side are away to Bosnia-Herzegovina from 3.30pm.

Tennis

In his bid for a calendar year Grand Slam, Novak Djokovic defeated Tallon Griekspoor 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 in the second round of the US Open in New York.

Golf

Rory McIlroy goes into day two of the Tour Championship in Atlanta on 4 under par.

He shot a 2 under par round of 68 at East Lake yesterday.
