THE apple doesn't fall far from the tree, and that is certainly the case with athletics legend Eamonn Coghlan and his son John.
Eamonn was a proud father last night after John won a gold medal at the European Cross Country Championships in Portugal.
John was part of the victorious U23 men's team that included Ciaran O Lionard, David McCarthy, Brendan O'Neill, Michael Mulhare and David Rooney.
