Disaster for Meeke and Nagle in Germany

Published

LAST weekend’s Rally Germany surely will bring into question Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle’s future with the Citroen WRC team with the above picture saying it all. The rally kicked off with a short super-special spectator stage, and it took less than a mile into the event for their weekend to end in ruins.

In a rally that Citroen had one of its best chances to be competitive in a largely disastrous season, Meeke broke his steering by clipping a concrete barrier with less than a mile into the stage.

Not helping Meeke’s cause was Andreas Mikkelsen in the sister car taking second overall in his first tarmac outing with Citroen and Craig Breen in the third Citroen C3 entry finishing an ever consistent fifth spot recovering from a slow start on the first day.

This has added to Meeke’s tally of crashes this year in Monte Carlo, Sweden, Argentina, Portugal and Italy with only one win in Mexico that almost ended in tears in the closing moments. Meeke is without question the fastest driver in the current WRC line-up.

Ott Tanak in a Ford Fiesta won the event last weekend from the sensation of the weekend, Mikkelsen with Sebastian Ogier in a Ford Fiesta taking third and the lead in the championship after Thierry Neuville damaged his Hyundai i20 on day 2 removing himself from the final results.

Three rounds remaining, the championship is still wide open. 1) Ogier – 177 pts, 2) Neuville 160 pts, 3) Tanak 144 pts, 4) Lavala 123 pts. The excitement of the championship to date – anything can happen.

The Dóchas Drama Group will run a series of short plays at the Muckross Schoolhouse from December 5 to 7.

The group’s annual performance has been switched to the Muckross venue as its traditional base – the ballroom in the Killarney Avenue Hotel is being refurbished.

“If you are fed up with the incessant rain and constant bad news. Do you need a break? Are tired of listening to advice about your Christmas cake recipe? There is a perfect solution,” said the group’s Liz Ryan.

“We will present six short plays and some of the questions you may ask yourself are: 

“Why is Jane suddenly so honest?

“What did happen on December 9. Will Tiffany be promoted? Will Mags eventually find love?

“Can lost love be re-kindled? What do grandparents get up to when they’re babysitting?

For answers to these questions and more, come along to Muckross Schoolhouse on December 5, 6 and 7.”
