Meeke and Nagle flat-out

Published

KRIS MEEKE and Paul Nagle head to the penultimate round of the World Rally Championships in Wales next weekend (October 26) off the back of an absolutely dominant win last time out. The Citroen crew have to be favourites for their home event, sadly at this point in the championship from being pre-season favourites should have the championship sewn up or at the very least be in the hunt, such is the cruelty of high level professional sports.

It is clear from the results this year that both car and crew have been challenged to breaking point but what is also clear is that Meeke and Nagle are the only crew to challenge championship leader Sebastian Ogier on level ground and Citroen clearly have the resources to turn an underperforming car around.

The determination and resolve required to get any sports person to the top of their sport, that same determination and resolve is constantly challenged to keep on top. Furthermore motorsport is unique from other sports because it is man and machine. A very expensive machine backed by very powerful people with very high expectations. Pressure for crews is all around.

However with two rounds remaining and a dominant last time out, Meeke and Nagle have to feel that fortunes are turning and an end of season hat-trick is on the cards laying down a marker for next year’s championship.

Wales is the closest WRC event for Irish fans that will travel to the Welsh forests lining the routes throughout the event offering their support.

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.”
