Listen: Tullamore's Josephine Healion Lands Medal Success

Trip to Quebec results in tremendous medal haul for midlands cyclist in Para-Cycling World Championships and World Cup.

Offaly cyclist Josephine Healion is heading back from the Para-Cycling Road World Championships and World Cup with an armful of silverware.

Josephine, representing Ireland at a UCI event for the first time, managed to land two silver medals and a bronze, as did her pilot Linda Kelly.

The Tullamore Cycling club member picked up the silvers in the first weekend of August at a UCI World Cup event in Quebec. 

Those successes were landed in the Road race and time trial.

Jump forward a week and Josephine was competing for top honours again in the World Championships, also held in Quebec.

On this occasion Linda and Josephine were unfortunate to have a timing chain break.

They still brought home bronze.

There was more success for the Irish at the World Championships with Katie George Dunleavy and Eve McCrystal winning gold in the road race.

Also in the gold was Ronan Grimes who added the road race World Championship to his European title from May.

Now a World Championship medalist, Josephine has touched down in Dublin and tells David Hollywood she's finding the success hard to process:
