Letters to Editor

We had many sporting heroes in the week that included St Patrick's Day, but one stands out way above the rest. There were stellar performances at Cheltenham by jockeys such as Ruby Walsh, Robbie Power, Jack Kennedy, Noel Fehily, Jamie Codd, Paul Townend and many others.

We had super training performances by Gordon Elliott, Willie Mullins and Jessica Harrington, all of whom made us Irish proud even though we had no connections with either group.

Then we had that thundering display by the Irish rugby team in seeing off 'the old enemy' England in the thriller at the Aviva. Sheer will and determination carved out a very good result even though it was a case of too little, too late. All above are live contenders for sports star of the week.
