Tues pm Sport: Ireland v Georgia Euro Qualifier Tonight ; Carbery Extends Munster Contract; No Clonmel Joy for Yorkhill

: 03/26/2019 - 17:13

Mick McCarthy admits he will be nervous when the Republic of Ireland kicks off tonight's Euro 2020 qualifier against Georgia at the Aviva Stadium.

It will be the 60 year old's first game in charge in Dublin since his first stint as manager ended in 2002.

Supporters are said to be planning to throw tennis balls onto pitch in protest over the John Delaney controversy.

==================
The Republic of Ireland under-19s finished their Elite Euro qualifying campaign unbeaten.

Mark McGuinness and Ali Reghba both found the net in a 2 - nil win over group hosts Russia.

Ireland were already guaranteed qualification for the finals before today's game, but finish with three wins from three and just one goal conceded.

The date for the draw is not yet known, but Armenia hosts the finals in July.

===========
Joey Carbery will be a Munster player until at least June of 2022.

The out-half has signed a 2-year contract extension with the province and the IRFU.

====
Paul O'Connell has confirmed his departure from Stade Francais.

The former Ireland captain had been working as forwards coach with emphasis on the lineout, but leaves Paris with a year remaining on his contract.

Ulster's Craig Gilroy and Will Addison have been ruled out of Saturday's Champions Cup quarter final against Leinster at the Aviva Stadium.

Both Irish internationals will miss the game due to back injuries.

===============
Paul Townend reached the centurion club for the season this afternoon.

The Gold Cup-winning jockey's 100th winner came aboard the Willie Mullins-trained Annamix in the Goatenbridge Maiden Hurdle at Clonmel.

Elsewhere on the card, Yorkhill's return after nine-months out ended in defeat.

The two-time Cheltenham winner placed second behind Acapella Bourgeois in the Suir Valley Chase.
