No Civic Reception Planned For Kellie Harrington To Mark Olympic Achievement

Sport Ireland says it hopes the country's success at the Olympics will lead to more young people getting involved in sport.

Ireland won a total of four medals - including two gold by Kellie Harrington in boxing and Fintan McCarthy and Paul O'Donovan in rowing.
It meant a 39th place finish in the medal table - the highest since the 1996 Games.
Sport Ireland CEO John Treacy hopes Kellie Harrington's win yesterday will help inspire the next generation.

Kellie Harrington is expected back in Ireland tomorrow - but there won't be a formal civic reception for Ireland's latest Olympic gold medallist.
Dublin City Council say there will be 'a further announcement' in the coming days regarding its plans to mark Kellie’s achievement.
