LIKE MANY ACROSS IRELAND, I cheered on Ireland's gold medal winners in the men's lightweight double sculls. I'm inspired by the arduous training and unflinching dedication of Fintan McCarthy and Paul O'Donovan. The combination paid dividends.
Eighteen boats entered the men's lightweight double sculls. The Irish men closed their eyes and pulled like dogs.
[We're following the Tokyo Olympics on eir TV and using an Old Skool globe to find all the competing nations. Too bad about the American women's soccer team.]
