BBC Sport slated for labelling Irish rowing stars as British

BBC Sport sparked outrage by labelling two of Ireland's most celebrated sport stars as British.

Cork rowing brothers Gary and Paul O'Donovan did Ireland proud once more yesterday, picking up silver in the Lightweight Double Sculls at the European Championships in Glasgow.

I repeat, the Olympic silver medallists from the lovely west Cork town of Skibbereen did IRELAND proud with their performance yesterday, because thats where they are from, IRELAND.

Somebody clearly needs to tell that to the good people at BBC Sport, as spotted and shared on Twitter by Scotsman Tommy Docherty.

As you can imagine, the reaction on Twitter was not favourable to the British broadcaster.
