My father, the medal winner

THEY'RE liver, kidney and pancreas transplant recipients aged from 16 all the way to 76 - but that didn't stop these athletes from finishing in third place at the eighth European Transplant and Dialysis Championships in Krakow, Poland.

The 25 men and nine women from Transplant Team Ireland received a rapturous welcome at Dublin Airport yesterday as they arrived home with 18 gold, 18 silver and 31 bronze medals from events including badminton, tennis and golf.
