WATCH: O'Donovan brothers turn on the charm in new documentary

WEST Cork’s favourite brothers have shown again that they have a future in TV if they ever decide to hang up their oars.

Olympic silver medallists Paul and Gary O’Donovan feature in O'Donovan Brothers: From the Back of Beyond – part of the Red Bull’s ‘The Way of the Wildcard’ series – which charts the rise of the Lisheen brothers to the top of the rowing world.

In 2016, Paul and Gary became household personalities by winning silver men's lightweight double sculls at that summer's Olympic Games. In what is commonly regarded as sport for the elite, the O’Donovan brothers’ story explains other routes into rowing, as well as shedding light on one of the Europe’s most successful and unique rowing clubs you’ve never heard of.
