Ireland's women's boxing team returned to a heroes welcome in Dublin Airport on Saturday after returning home with two medals from the World Championships.

It's the first time the team have returned with two medals from the event. Kellie Harrington won a silver medal in the 64kg division, while Olympic champion Katie Taylor won bronze in the 60kg event.

Taylor will be Ireland's sole representative at the Olympic Games this summer from the Women's team. Sadly for Harrington, her performance was good enough to qualify, but the light-welterweight class is not one of the three Olympic weights, women can fight in.
