THERE are only a few certainties in life – and one of those is ‘you’ll be sorry if you miss this Thursday’s Southern Star for our excellent 20-PAGE souvenir special on the O’Donovan brothers, Gary and Paul’.
In association with the Nissan Generation Next programme – Gary and Paul are both Nissan Generation Next ambassadors – this keepsake supplement has everything you need to know about these Lisheen legends who won silver medals at the Olympic Games in Rio.
Thanks to Nissan Generation Next, there is also a fantastic prize of a night away for two in the five-star Castlemartyr Resort.
Here are some of the many highlights of the supplement on our local heroes that you do not want to miss:
