It has been a day where nature has shown her full power. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who have lost loved ones in tragic circumstances in Waterford, Tipperary and Dundalk.
Sport has been rocked. The damage to Turners Cross Stadium in Cork has been severe and rooves on gyms and sports grounds across the country have also given way to Ophelia.
In the bigger picture of today’s disruption, it may not be much but we are pleased to report that the One-Zero Sports and Leadership event at Croke Park tomorrow goes ahead.
Our US-based speakers for tomorrow’s event beat the weather and arrived this morning,
Hope Solo is now resting up ahead of opening the show at 9 am in the morning.
Our principal supporters for tomorrow Dublin City Council, the Irish Times and RTÉ have been out front ensuring that the show must go on in the widest context.
All our staff, suppliers and speakers have done what is needed to make sure tomorrow goes ahead. Our friends and partners in getting this show on have shown grace under pressure and the stage is set for what will, without doubt, be a day of sporting stories and lessons to remember.
