A large crowd turned out in Dunmore East, in Co Waterford for the homecoming of Irish athlete Thomas Barr.

He won a bronze medal in the 400m hurdles at the European Championships in Berlin last week.

The 26-year-old, who trains with the Ferrybank Athletics Club, was met by a flotilla of boats in the harbour and was honoured at a large reception.
