“WE’RE celebrating only the fifth Irishman to win a stage of the Tour de France,” says Paul Kimmage about Dan Martin’s magnificent achievement yesterday.
In his latest video diary for Independent.ie, Kimmage says: “It was really interesting that just after the finish they brought his uncle, Stephen Roche, onto France TV and interviewed him about his nephew. “But I know him as Neil Martin’s son – he is one of the nicest people I’ve known. We shared some really great times back in the 80s.”
