O'Flynn On Comeback Trail At Ballindenisk

THOUGH hospitalised for weeks after a serious accident last year, Kildare-based Event rider Jane O'Flynn proved that she is unequivocally on the comeback trail, after a second place in today's (Sunday) three-star event at Ballindenisk, Cork.

Recently long-listed for the 2004 Olympics, O'Flynn was in a critical condition in Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital last August after being airlifted from a One-Day Event in Richill, Co. Armagh, following a fall.

In a critical condition for many days, Jane missed her possible place on Ireland's European Championship team in 2003, but during the last eight months has fought her way back to fitness, and this weekend produced an impressive score on <Kilnadeema Star> at Ballindenisk, just 12 penalty points behind the three-star winner, Joroslav Hatla, from the Czech Republic, riding <Kyrenejennalla's Boy>.

Ireland's Sarah Daly on <Test Flight> was third today.
