Hopes high for horse ‘Kilkenny’ in Olympic action this morning

All three Irish riders qualified yesterday for today's deciding event

The last local representative at the Tokyo Games is in an Olympic final today.

Cian O’Connor is riding his horse ‘Kilkenny’ in the individual showjumping finals.

Kilkenny was bred by Tom Brennan at the Mill House Stud in Gowran and he says the action will be worth tuning in.
