THE dust has settled, the medals have been handed out and so it's time to pack up the tricolour flags and head for home.
Ireland's time at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro was certainly memorable. If not absolutely bonkers.
From the shock of boxing heroes like Katie Taylor and Michael Conlan exiting the competition early to the wonderful medal winning performances by sailor Annalise Murphy.

7. We had our very own Cristiano Ronaldo too with badminton player Scott Evans ripping off his top in celebration at picking up Ireland's first ever Olympic badminton win
8. Into the second week and we had another shock when 2012 gold medalist Katie Taylor was beaten in the Olympic quarter final
9. It got worse for Ireland when Michael Conlan was controversially beaten to leave the nation stunned
10. But Annalise Murphy saved the day with a well-deserved silver medal in sailing
12.Thomas Barr became our very own Usain Bolt by breaking all sorts of records but couldn't clinch that elusive medal
13. Leaving his poor sister, like the rest of us after two weeks, with no nerves left..
