"You think there's going to be partying? Oh wow!" - There's one thing on the O'Donovans' minds now

It's party time for the Olympic silver medalists

The O'Donovan brothers, Paul and Gary, have really captured the imagination after sealing Ireland's first medal success of Rio 2016.

The Irish duo not only performed well but are clearly good craic to hang out with - as Off The Ball found out when they joined Ger Gilroy on the line. 

They had earlier told Newstalk's Jonathan Healy that they will be staying in Rio until the end of the Games to celebrate and that means one thing.

"You mean there's going to be partying? Oh wow!" laughed Paul O'Donovan when Ger suggested what is likely to come next for them around the Olympic village, before adding "I can't wait for that!"

Unfortunately they can't be home for the celebrations in hometown Skibbereen, Co Cork.

"I'd say Skibbereen shut down did it?" Paul enquired in a beautifully chaotic double interview which you can listen to now.
