Plaudits for Katie Taylor came in from angles after she claimed a record equaling fifth consecutive World championship gold medal win this morning.
High Performance coach Billy Walsh heralded the Bray woman the great Irish sportsperson, her father and coach called her a legend, Darren O’Neill said Taylor has proven herself the greatest Irish boxer of all time and the President even weighed in with some kind words.
Social media went Taylor mad too- and here are some of the best tweets re Taylor’s win.
WOW @KatieTaylor with her 5th World Championship GOLD in a ROW! An inspiration to everyone grinding towards their dream!! Congrats Katie :-)
