    The siblings, from West Cork, - who claimed silver in the lightweight double sculls competition - paraded through the streets on Monday showing off their medals to the thousands of people who had gathered for their official homecoming.

    And it was not just their rowing talent that captured the imagination of fans worldwide. The now-famous brothers charmed hordes of fans with an entertaining television interview following their silver-medal success.
