I want to congratulate Paul and Gary O’Donovan on winning Ireland's first medal at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

It is a wonderful achievement for them personally, their home club and Irish rowing.

The entire Country has enjoyed watching Paul and Gary both on and off the water. Their exceptional athleticism and good humour has been uplifting. I want to thank them for all the sacrifice and effort they have made to achieve success for Ireland on the world stage.
