Katie gets Telly treatment
Boxing star and Olympic gold medallist Katie Taylor has achieved the highest honour in Ireland – to be imitated in a sketch by RTE's Republic of Telly.
Jennifer Maguire's impression of Katie is hilarious and pretty brave given the Bray bruiser's record in the ring. We hope Jennifer isn't planning a visit to Oldcourt any time soon!
With new and enthusiastic management in the form of 'Experimental,' who tells the boxer she's 'f***in sh*t,' 'Katie' brings out a new rap single 'Taylor Made.'
She is interviewed by Síle Seoige, and manages to answer her mobile phone, make a cup of coffee and even eat a Twix while wearing her trusty boxing gloves.
'He helps me with my boxing but he's really pushing my new boxing career forward,' says the national treasure about dad Pete's replacement.
The comedy programme aired on Monday night but the video is still available to view on Youtube under the name 'Katie Taylored' as well as on the RTE player.
Over 2,000 people have seen it on YouTube so far with the number swiftly growing.
