Katie carries flag and all our hopes

The announcement that boxer Katie Taylor is to carry the Irish flag at the Olympic Games opening ceremony in London this Friday is a welcome acknowledgement of the achievements of perhaps the outstanding Irish athlete of her generation and our best medal hope at this year's summer games.

With five European and four World championships already under her belt, Katie's achievements are already immense.

The whole country will be willing her on to add an Olympic gold medal to that haul.
