Irish rowers Towey and Lewis touch down in Dublin

The two Irish rowers rescued from the mid-Atlantic after their boat capsized last Sunday are finally back home in Ireland.

Gearóid Towey and Ciaran Lewis were competing in a transatlantic rowing race when their vessel overturned in high seas off the coast of Bermuda.

They activated their emergency beacon and were eventually picked up by a homeward-bound Spanish tanker.

They were reunited with their families in Spain this morning.
