Galway are waking up as All-Ireland Senior Camogie champions for the fourth time.

A second half goal from Siobhan McGrath helped them see off Cork by 1-15 to 1-12 at Croke Park to lift the O'Duffy Cup for the second time in three years.

Here's Galway's winning captain Sarah Dervan:

Golf

Shane Lowry says it's been a career-long dream to play at the Ryder Cup after being named as one of Padraig Harrington's wildcard picks for the European team.



The Offaly native was selected along with Sergio Garcia and Ian Poulter for the meeting with the USA at Whistling Straits later this month:



Tennis

Daniil Medvedev is the new US Open tennis champion - after he prevented Novak Djokovic from becoming the most successful male tennis player in history.

The Russian beat the world number one in straight sets in the final at Flushing Meadows to win his first Grand Slam title.

Djokovic was aiming for his 21st - more than any other.

Medvedev says beating the Serbian made the win all the more special:


Soccer

Liverpool maintained their unbeaten start to the Premier League season.

Jurgen Klopp's side beat Leeds 3-0 at Elland Road thanks to goals from Mo Salah, Fabinho and Sadio Mane but the win was overshadowed by a serious ankle injury to teenager Harvey Elliott.

Klopp was happy with his team's performance but says there's clearly more improvement to come:



Tonight, Everton host Burnley at Goodison Park from 8pm.

There's also one game in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division with Finn Harps at home to Bohemians - that game also kicks off at 8pm.

Rugby

Ireland play Spain this evening in the opening game of their Rugby World Cup European Qualifiers.

Ireland Sevens captain Lucy Mulhall will make her debut after being named to start at outside centre.

It's the only change in personnel from the team that started the win over Italy in the Women’s Six Nations back in April.

Kick off in Parma is at 5pm.



Cricket

Ireland will aim to avoid a one-day series defeat to Zimbabwe later.

They're 1-0 down heading into the final match in Belfast.

Play gets underway from 10.30am this morning.
