THERE has been a brilliant response from around the county of Carlow since the broke last night that our own Marcus Lawler was named on the team to represent Ireland at the Olympic Games this summer in Toyko. Below are just some of the comments on our Twitter page, and it’s been similar over on Facebook. The whole county is so proud of Marcus and his brilliant achievement. Don’t forget, you can read a feature length interview with Marcus in next Tuesday’s paper.
Congrats @marcus_lawler on selection for Tokyo Olympics. Incredibly modest fella who has dedicated himself since a kid to fulfil his dream. Delighted for his Mam, Patricia (narrowly lost out on 1988 Seoul Olympics)who has been his coach through thick and thin. https://t.co/faXbTChWdf
