1. #CLINICAL CATS Kilkenny showed their class as they shrugged off the challenge of Dublin in their Leinster SHC final yesterday.

2. #KERRY GOLD The Kingdom came out on top after an intriguing Munster SFC final in Killarney. Cork overcame a stuttering first period to find form in the second and push Kerry all the way.

The 42-year-old – best remembered for his performance at the 2002 British Open when he lost out to Ernie Els in a playoff – finished the day with one-under round of 70, pipping Denmark’s Thorbjorn Olesen and overnight leader Mark Foster to the €500,000 first prize.

6. #COPA AMERICA Brazil were held to a scoreless draw by Venezuela last night. Disappointingly, in the other Group B match, Paraguay and Ecuador also played out a 0-0 draw in Santa Fe.
