European bronze medalist Mark English returned to his home town of Letterkenny last night.

Mark was the pride of the town as a large crowd of several hundred welcomed back their hero following his fantastic performance in Zurich.

Oisin Kelly attended the homecoming for Highland Radio Sport where he spoke with Mark's former teacher at St. Eunan's College Eddie Harvey and Mark's former coach Teresa McDaid of Letterkenny AC.

First Oisin spoke with Mark, who was humbled with the homecoming in Letterkenny.
