Bertram Allen and Denis Lynch finished 16th and 17th at the FEI European Championships in Aachen yesterday, bringing a difficult week for Irish showjumping to an end.

Both had a pole down in the first round of the medal-decider. Allen collected a single fault with Molly Malone, while Lynch's All Star had the first fence down second time out.

Gold went to Dutchman Jeroen Dubbeldam, with the 42-year-old adding the individual European title to last Friday's team title.

Cian O'Connor decided not compete. He said yesterday: "I decided not to jump him in today's final as with four faults still standing following Friday's incident in the second round of the Nations Cup, I feel 21st place was a long way to climb back.

"It's been a dramatic week, but the Olympic dream isn't over yet by any means."

An arena party member stepped in front of the Irishman's horse in the second round of the team competition, and the horse kicked out the front pole of the next fence on the course in an otherwise foot-perfect round.

A protest to the Ground Jury was followed by an appeal to the FEI Appeals Committee, but this was rejected, with Ireland failing to qualify for Rio 2016 as a result.
