I wrote a verse about Katie Taylor’s fantastic achievement in London. I read this out on Joe Duffy’s liveline the day after she won the gold medal. It was a brilliant achievment and no one deserved it more than Katie. She is such a modest girl, and a role model for all youngsters. It was engraved in stone by Thomas Coyne of Galway
This is a verse I wrote after John Joe’s heroics in London. John Joe is a proud member of the travelling community and has achieved an awful lot in his career so far. It was engraved in stone by Thomas Coyne.
