    I needed that.

    Honest hard working lads.

    I had an Olympic rower living near me and he didn’t qualify for the final. The amount of work and dedication it takes to get there is ferocious.

    Fair play to these lads. I would say they have a few more Olympics in them yet.

    Screaming at the telly like it was the 1990 penalty shootout. Still buzzing.

    Well done,,,,this will generate so much interest in a great sport and one we should really do well in in future olympics

  3. topsy

    Shane Lowry – hope your watching two men who earn little, but are proud to represent their country.

    The real story of Rio ’16
    ( eff the rest ov’it)

    Thanks lads

    Hon’ Cork

    Shtay’way from the spuds lads

    Congrats lads, another 200 metres they woulda had Gold :)
    Pints and shhhteak all round tonight….. and whatever yer having yerself.

      Yerrah, that’s aul guff. They said it was nice to beat the Brits especially after the Brexit in the semi-finals so I think they’re just yer typical republican West Cork lads.

      1. Tony

        I think they were referring to 1916 centenary as well. Given the year thats in it.. Good old fashioned Cork republicans.

      A few seconds before he had to step away and dry heave because of the what he put his body through to win a medal for his country, but hey you just focus on the negative there moist

      1. MoyestWithExcitement

        For his country? Get in the sea. He won a medal (came second) in a boat race for himself. Neither I, nor you, nor anyone else here had anything to do with it. If people want to feel like they’re part of it, great, but this ‘for his country’ lark like he’s a soldier who just saved someone’s life and every Irish person has a duty to revere him is horseship.

        1. rotide

          It’s official, Moyest has set a new Olympic Record for Begrudgery!

          We’re all very proud of you back home , Delighted you did it for your country!

          1. WhiteKnight

            “It’s official, Moyest has set a new Olympic Record for Begrudgery!”

            What would you expect from some loser like Moyest, whose only accomplishment is spending all day hammering F5 on broadsheet, looking for something to offend him?

            “There’s no begrudgery in the post, you angry little simpleton.”

            August 10, 2016 at 1:41 pm
            you are firstly trying to dishonestly paint me as angry (a very common tactic among right wing slander merchants)

            Jaysis, what a fupping dope!

        2. stick your beak in my bag

          For once i agree with Moyest. These guys are sole traders. I have never gotten this “for their country lark”.

      2. Harry Molloy

        Moist looks for a negative and focuses on it.
        Regardless of how positive the tone of the piece or comment might be.

          1. Kieran NYC

            Ask him about the poor underpaid LUAS drivers. It’s hilarious.

            You’ll get to see him in action again when the train drivers have their strikes.

    3. Continuity Jay-Z

      It’s been claimed back from them. That is must happen. Let’s encourage it’s widespread use at every turn to render it meaningless.

  6. Mark

    I thought it was the direct translation of “Our day will come” rather than a Ra slogan, meaning their gold will come. But then shure, Im just an innocent.

    Fair play all the same! Rowing clubs wont know what hit them

    1. Steve

      First off delighted for the lads!!! Amazing. Amazing for the sport. And the thing is it’s a sport, like boxing, if the right funding was put in, we could be deadly at every olympics.

      Secondly who knows what he meant, probably need to watch the interview again. Anyway it’s after a race. I rowed for a couple of years in college. All you wanted to do after every race is get sick. They look calm but it’s 2 kilometres of hell. He probably didn’t know what he was saying for the whole interview.

      1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

        I think one of them did get sick. He stepped away from the interview and hawked something up and then came back drinking water.

    Extremely annoying accent on yer man though, medal or no medal, annoying accent is an annoying accent

    1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

      In your opinion, you forgot to add. I’m dead used to accents like that and it doesn’t annoy me at all.
      So now so.

  8. Tom Thumb

    This is brilliant, this is the Ireland I want to be known for being from. Hard working and able to enjoy the moment.

  9. Neymar

    So delighted for the lads, There won’t be a loaf of bread baked in Field’s tonight. Hurray!!!!!

  10. Frilly Keane

    Ah here Moist

    Fû(k off wi’yerself

    I’m delighted for everyone
    The Donovan’s
    N’all ov’ye as well

    This result has changed the Rio headlines coming up over the next few days

    From Hickey and the drug cheats
    To spuds n’medals

    More please

    Shteak and spuds. Give me a break with the racist stereotyping. On the other hand most of the people watching these two from Cark are overweight buffoons with a six pack at their side anyway.

    Gold matters. Silver doesn’t.

  12. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    There should be Gold Medals for begrudgers.
    -That way you knobs would have a platform to adjudicate from and ALSO feel entitled. You wouldn’t have to get up off your sofa. The medal could be sent by post, and you could get someone else to bring it in from the hall.

    These eejits going to the Olympics are eejits, amminirite?
    The cheek of them, winning Silver. It makes me sick.

    I would’ve won TWO gold medals, just like most of the rest of you.
    OMG, I’m so annoyed.

    -Is this a joke?

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      Hang on a minute, I’m getting mixed up.
      I thought two Irish lads won Silver for having a row outside a pub at closing time. Two brothers, probably over a woman or something. It happens.

      I realise now that I was wrong.
      -What was the fight over?
