Originally from Dublin but now living in Knocnacarra, Niall Mooney will be once again vying to have his composition selected as the Irish entry for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. He was first struck by euro song fever in 2009 when he penned the Irish entry which was sung by Niamh Kavanagh. He repeated this feat again in 2010, and now he is renewing his fervour for the Eurovision Song Contest with a song entitled ‘Fire’ and sung by Mulingar resident, Zoe Alexis.

RUGBY SHORTS

•Corinthians claimed the scalp of city rivals Galwegians by 15 - 0 in the battle for a play-off place in AIL u-20 division one league. In appalling conditions, both sides served up an enthralling contest which saw Corinthians move up into joint third place in a league currently led by fellow Connacht outfit Buccaneers. Unsurprisingly, it became a battle up front, and Corinthians, with the wind, dominated territory for the first half. Prop Fiachra Tierney was unlucky when stopped just short due to the excellent Wegians pack, led by Greg Leader. Scoreless at the break, Galwegians looked the more likely to win, but Corinthians played outstanding rugby to dominate the second half and score three tries. Johnny Kearney touched down for the first try. When Shane Conneely broke on the blind, he fed Kevin Russell who dived over in the corner. Galwegians fought back, but with time running out scrumhalf Peter Walsh sold an outrageous dummy from broken play to score the third. Corinthians now meet Cork Constitution in Temple Hill on Saturday.
