If you have ever been to Hibernia Bar then you know that two things are true:
- Hibernia is proud to be an Irish Pub. and
- Hibernia is the best Hell’s Kitchen Sports Bar.
Being where Irish heritage meets outstanding sports, Hibernia wants to recognize Ireland’s four medalists from the Tokyo Olympics!
Paul O’Donovan and Fintan McCarthy, Gold Medal- Rowing
Lightweight Men’s Double Sculls
Paul O’Donovan is from Lisheen, which is near Skibbereen, County Cork. Twenty seven year old O’Donovan won a silver medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics with his older brother Gary, as well as a gold medal at the 2018 World Rowing Championships. Along with Fintan McCarthy, Irish National Champion from Skibbereen, County Cork, Paul O’Donovan won the 2019 World Rowing Championships, and then the gold medal in Tokyo. They won by convincingly pulling away from the field after the halfway point and setting a new world record!
Kellie Anne Harrington, Gold Medal- Boxing
Kellie Anne Harrington proudly comes from an inner-city neighborhood on Dublin’s northside. She is an outspoken member of the LGBTQ community and an idol for inner-city kids everywhere. Harrington credits the sport of boxing with keeping her on the right path in life and says without it, she might well have ended up in jail. She is quite accomplished as a boxer. Harrington won a silver medal at the 2016 AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships and a gold medal at the 2018 AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships. In Tokyo, Harrington won the gold in the lightweight division.
Fiona Murtagh, Eimear Lambe, Emily Hegart and Aifric Keogh, Bronze Medal- Rowing
Women’s Coxless Four
Twenty five year old Fiona Murtagh is an alum of Fordham University. She won a bronze medal at the 2020 European Rowing Championships and a silver medal at the 2021 European Rowing Championships as well as winning the Head of Charles twice.
Eimear Lambe is from Dublin and is also twice a European Rowing Medalist. She won a world silver medal in 2019. Lamb is a vetran rower at just twenty three, having rowed for Ireland at the the Youth Olympics.
Emily Hegart was raised in Moonagh, Aughadown in County Cork and is twenty three years old. She has been rowing since 2009 and was a part of the silver medal winning team at the 2019 World Rowing Championships.
The most vetran woman on this rowing team is Aifric Keogh. The twenty eight year old from Na Forbacha, County Galway, has been rowing for fifteen years. She missed most of 2019 due to an illness but has returned as a force to be reckoned with.
Together, these four women won the bronze medal at the inaugural Olympic Women’s Coxless Four. With a time of 6:20:46, they were less than a second behind the gold medalists.
Aidan Walsh, Bronze- Boxing
Aidan Walsh was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland and trains at the Monkstown Boxing Club in Newtownabbey. He had previously won a silver medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
