Medal winner: Congratulations to James Nolan form Killcullen, Co Kildare who has just returned from the European Transplant and Dialysis Championships in Krakow, Poland with a silver and bronze medal. James is, of course, the indefatigable organiser of the Punchestown kidney research charity sweepstakes, the last race at the Punchestown Festival which has raised so much money over the years.

What style!
