Taoiseach Micheál Martin congratulated the members of Team Ireland as their hugely successful Tokyo Olympics campaign ended today.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin said:
“As the Tokyo Olympics draws to a close, the whole country is so proud of every member of Team Ireland.
“Sport is such an important and essential aspect of Irish life.
“We have all shared the collective highs, and been inspired by, the achievements of our athletes.
“Their performances throughout these Games have lifted the spirits of our nation.
“Team Ireland returns from Tokyo with two gold medals and two bronze medals, and many more historic and inspirational performances.
“As lightweight boxing gold medallist Kellie Harrington said of our athletes today: We are all champions.
“Today, we celebrate everyone who wore the green jersey. You did Ireland proud.”

Today I want to acknowledge all those Olympians who represented Ireland and did their very best in each of their sporting categories. Well done to those who won medals and congratulations to all for competing. I have put together a series of YouTube videos that cover what those medals meant to the winners, their families, their communities and Ireland, north and south.
