Elsewhere, Galway footballer Shane Walsh says he wants to return to play for his home club in the future.

The 29-year-old has requested a transfer from Kilkerrin-Clonberne to Dublin side Kilmacud Crokes.

In a personal statement issued yesterday, Walsh said it was "the right move" for him, as he's now living and studying in Dublin.

GOLF

Europe's new golf captain Luke Donald hopes the Ryder Cup brings the sport back together in Rome next year - following the divisions caused by the LIV series.

He's been confirmed in the role, after Henrik Stenson was sacked for joining the controversial breakaway tour.

Donald does not yet know whether he can pick the LIV rebels.

But he says the event could help unify the sport:



Tiger Woods turned down an offer of between $700-800 million to join the Saudi-backed LIV Series, according to Greg Norman.

The Australian - who is CEO of the breakaway tour - says the 15-time major winner was approached with an offer.

Meanwhile, the PGA Tour has revealed a new prize money structure, with a total of $415 million on offer next season.

Eight invitational tournaments will also be included in the schedule with "elevated" purses.

RACING

There's racing at Roscommon this evening where the first of seven races goes to post at 5.25pm.
