OUR Olympic heroes, Gary and Paul O'Donovan, are the talk of the country after the silver medal winning performance in Rio on Friday. Here's what Twitter has had to say on our new national celebs!
The Skibbereen brothers came second in the final of the men's lightweight double sculls, as they became the first-ever Irish rowers to medal at the Olympics - an outstanding achievement.
Paul and Gary are also European champions.
Massive congrats to the O'Donovan brothers. There won't be a cow milked in skibbereen for a week.

The O Donovan brothers are very like me and Dave, completely down to earth and full of devilment

O'Donovan brothers before starting their BBC interview - 'We'll have to be careful with what we say to these lads'.
