  Guardian | Mick Doyle
It was ironic that the former Ireland rugby coach Mick Doyle, who has died in a road accident aged 63, had managed to see off two huge health setbacks in his career and was, according to friends, mentally sharper of late than at any stage in recent years.
Doyle was moved to hospital in Auckland to recover, but was back in harness before Ireland had completed their Pool phase of the tournament.
Doyle recognised that he had a back line capable of producing a running game - which was alien to Ireland's rugby culture - and he gave them the freedom to follow their instincts.

In Doyle's music we are blessed with a banquet of original songs written over a 20-year period and embellished by Doyle's colleagues, gifted and mature musicians.
During those ten years Doyle set himself to the task of song-writing and it is from this tranquil location that Doyle seems to have drawn the "strength and energy" to produce the music that fulfils his dream.
