Thursday, 01 September 2011

Hard work and good results has earned Niall Talbot a place on the Irish team for the Europeans. Here he gives his all in Falsterbo in July. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Robert Splaine today revealed the Irish team for the Europeans. The team will consist of Denis Lynch/All Inclusive or Lantinus, Billy Twomey/Tinka's Serenade, Nicola Fitzgibbon/Puissance, Niall Talbot/Nicos de la Cense and Shane Sweetnam/Amaretto Darco.

The Irish team was number four in this year's Nations Cup, but still have to qualify for the Olympics next year which looks like is going to be a real battle. There are several good teams fighting for the three remaining places. Robert Splaine stated today that "we must focus on our own performance and if we can perform to our best we have a great chance of getting the job done, as we have proved on many occasions already this year".
