Horse Sport Ireland and Denis Lynch have confirmed that a meeting took place yesterday (28 February) in Dublin between Horse Sport Ireland, Denis Lynch and Team Ireland Equestrian Show Jumping Manager Robert Splaine.

A spokesman for HSI said: “Horse Sport Ireland and Denis Lynch are pleased to confirm that progress was made on all the issues raised and it is hoped that matters will be fully resolved shortly.”

In January Lynch threatened to leave the Irish team, citing irreconcilable differences with Mr Splaine.

But he has continued to ride under Irish colours.
