We were on hand to grab a few words with Trish O'Donovan, the mother of Olympic silver-medal brothers Gary and Paul, as she arrived home to Cork Airport earlier today.
Trish speaks of how she's delighted to be home and is looking forward to catching up with all the local news on her two sons' triumphant silver-medal placing in the Men's Lightweight Double Sculls in Rio.
There are also official Gary and Paul Skibbereen Rowing Club t-shirts for sale which can be seen here: https://twitter.com/LisheenNS/status/765151484711403520
