A whirlwind week!

  • Myself with boxers Katie and Michael at Dublin airport

The last seven days since I was on the podium have been simply amazing and I haven’t stop smiling!

I had to come home ahead of the remainder of Team Ireland as I needed to prepare for the Dublin Horse Show which gets underway tomorrow at the RDS.

On my arrival home I joined all the Karlswood staff for lunch in the Snailbox pub, which was super as all these guys put so much into making this medal happen and so I feel they all own a piece of the bronze!

I've been inundated with media requests and did many radio interviews and a chat show with Tom McGurk which went really well.

On Monday the homecoming at Dublin airport was such a thrill. I'm honoured to be a part of this historic Team Ireland as a whole who brought home a record for Ireland of 5 medals from the London games.

The boxers have achieved so much and Katie Taylor's wonderful success has given the whole of Ireland a necessary lift.

I'm looking forward to getting back in the ring this week and giving the equestrian fans something to cheer about.

Come to the RDS and cheer us all on this week.
