EUROPEAN GAMES

Katie Taylor is chasing yet another gold medal today at the inaugural European Games.

The London Olympic hero will be targeting more glory this afternoon in Baku when she fights Estelle Mossely of France in their Lightweight final.

The pair are due to step into the ring at 2pm Irish time.

Michael O'Reilly will also be fighting for gold today as he contests the Middleweight Final at 3.15pm.

O'Reilly received a bye to get into the decider where he faces the local favourite from Azerbaijan, Xaybula Musalov.

In Badminton, Sam and Chloe Magee are back in action in the semi-finals of the Mixed Doubles.

The brother and sister duo are taking on the French pairing for a place in this week's final.

Six Irish swimmers and the Mens 4x100m Medley Relay team are all in the pool today.

Emma Reid swims in the heats of the 50m Butterfly along with Danielle Hill and Niamh Kilgallen, while James Brown, Andrew Moore and Benjamin Doyle all compete in the heats of the 400m Individual Medley.

The Men's 4x100m Medley Relay team will be looking to follow the success of the Irish Women's team, who finished 6th in their Final on Thursday.

 

GAA

The All-Ireland Football Qualifiers will continue this afternoon.

Armagh will play host to Wicklow at the Morgan Athletic Grounds in the opening match of the day in Round 1B, with throw-in at 2.30pm. That match will be live on Off The Ball with commentary and analysis from Dave McIntyre, Colm Parkinson and Billy Joe Padden.

Wexford host Down from 6.30pm and there is a 7pm throw-in between Louth and Leitrim in Drogheda.

There is also provincial championship action this evening in Clones as Derry go up against Donegal in their Ulster semi-final.

Under Rory Gallagher, Donegal appear to have found an extra attacking dimension this season but former Mayo manager James Horan believes that the Donegal skill levels have always been under-rated.

 

Also Minor Championship action taking place across three provinces today.

Leitrim and Sligo clash in Carrick-on-Shannon in their Connacht quarter-final at 2pm.

The Leinster semi-final meeting of Longford and Meath takes place at Pearse Park at 3pm.

And there is also an Ulster semi-final meeting in Clones before the big game as the Minors of Derry and Donegal also do battle at 5.15pm.

Also in Gaelic Games, there are four matches today in the Liberty Insurance Camogie Championship.

In Group 1, Offaly host Wexford in Birr, while Cork travel to Kilmallock to face Limerick.

And there are also two matches in Group 2 as Kilkenny go up against Clare and Tipperary play host to Derry.

All four of those matches will get underway at 2.30pm.

 

GOLF

Michael Hoey leads the Irish challenge heading into the third round at the BMW International Open.

Hoey will start in a tie for third place in Munich today when he resumes from 10-under par and just two shots behind outright leader, Rafa Cabrera Bello of Spain.

 

 

RACING

The 150th running of the Irish Derby takes place this evening at the Curragh.

A top class field has gathered to contest this year's edition, which will go to post at 6.30pm this evening.

Investec Derby runner-up Jack Hobbs is the odds-on favourite, but faces competition from Storm The Stars and Giovanni Canaletto - one of four Aidan O'Brien trained runners in today's race.

Racing pundit Donn McClean also made his betting tips for the feature race at the Curragh on Off The Ball which you can find here.

The Group 2 Dubai Duty Free Railway Stakes provides the main support act on today's eight-race card, with the action getting underway at 3pm.

 

SOCCER

Managerless Sligo Rovers travel to face a struggling Bray Wanderers side this evening in what could prove to be relegation battle in the Airtricity League Premier Division.

Rovers are on the hunt for a new manager after finally confirming the departure of Owen Heary last night.

Kick-off at the Carlisle Grounds is at 5.45pm.

There is also one game in the First Division tonight as Cobh Ramblers entertain UCD at 7.45pm.
