The Adare man made history by becoming the first captain to lift the Liam McCarthy on four occasions, following the Treaty's 1-31 to 2-26 victory against Kilkenny.

GOLF

Rory McIlroy says his inability to get birdies on the back nine on the final day cost him victory at the Open.

The Down man's wait for a fifth major will go into a ninth year after he finished third on 18-under par at Saint Andrews - with Australian Cameron Smith lifting the Claret Jug for the first time.

Shane Lowry took a share of 21st while qualifier David Carey was 62nd.

SOCCER

Derry City have moved up to second place in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division.

They secured a last-gasp 2-1 win at Finn Harps last night.

UCD drew level on points with Harps at the bottom of the table, thanks to a 2-0 win against Sligo Rovers at the Showgrounds.

Sweden are into the last-eight of the Women's Euros after thrashing Portugal 5-0 last night.

They'll be joined in the quarter-finals by the Netherlands, who finished runners-up in Group C after a 4-1 victory over Switzerland.

France - who will face the Netherlands in the next round - take on Iceland, who are hoping to book their spot in the knock-out phase, tonight.

If Iceland lose, the winner of Italy and Belgium would leapfrog them to qualify.

ATHLETICS

Thomas Barr has missed out on a place in the 400-metres hurdles final at the World Athletics Championship.

The Waterford Olympian finished fifth in his semi-final in Oregon this morning and was 19th overall.

Andrew Coscoran, who was a semi-finalist at the Tokyo Olympics, placed 12th in his 1500-metres semi.

RUGBY

Ireland will officially move to the top of rugby's world rankings later this morning.

Andy Farrell's side are set to go ahead of France following their 32-22 victory against New Zealand on Saturday.

That win secured a maiden Test series success away to the All-Blacks and it'll be Ireland's first time to be world number one since 2019.
