Close your eyes, pull like a dog, that’s the Olympic dream.

The two lads from Skibbereen in Cork returned to their home town on Monday to a hero’s welcome.

The Cork City Samba Band were on hand to keep the afterparty going, giving a brilliant rendition of ‘row row row your boat’ in honour of the silver medalists.

They changed the lyrics just a tad:

Row, row, row, your boat quickly down the stream. Close your eyes, pull like a dog, that’s the Olympic dream!

Yous are some craic Skibbereen!
