There was a gold medal for Ireland yesterday afternoon as Cork's O'Donovan brothers triumphed at the European Rowing Championships in Germany.

Paul and Gary took home gold in the A Final of the lightweight double sculls, finishing ahead of Germany and Norway.

Basking in the glory of gold, the duo were back in Ireland today and chatted with Newstalk Sports' Oisin Langan on the Rewind podcast.

The lads have their sights set on the Olympics, with two events to come between now and then.

"We've got two more World Cup Regattas to do. There's the second one which is in Lucerne, Switzerland in three weeks time and then there'll be the third World Cup then in Poznan in the middle of June. So we're going to train reasonably hard coming into them, we won't be focused too much on the end outcome. We've had some good results and we've enjoyed them but we'll focus now on getting the most out of ourselves come Rio," said Gary.     

The lads also chatted to The Pat Kenny Show about their achievement:
