THEY'VE been room-mates for the past two weeks in London but it seems double gold medallists Jason Smyth and Michael McKillop can't get enough of each other.
THE cheeky duo stole the show at Dublin Airport last night as our triumphant Paralympics team arrived home.
They were an hour late, but that just gave the waiting crowds more time to work themselves into a frenzy.
There were tears of joy, hugs made of Olympic-strength squeezes and screams that no doubt caused extra turbulence for the landing jets.
Some described them as Ireland's most successful team ever -- and with 16 medals, three world records and 17 national bests few could argue.
A lone piper led the 48 strong team into the hall as the
crowds erupted. Mark Rohan,
who won two gold medals in hand-cycling, said he was "almost speechless" by the reception.
"This is crazy -- I never expected this. It's just great to be home, to share the whole experience with everyone."
The fastest Paralympian in the world, Jason Smyth, said that the team's achievements prove anything is possible.
His next big challenge is getting married in December, but he already has his sights firmly set on Rio in 2016.
