PIC: Thomas Barr brought his granny to Coppers after the Late Late on Friday night
It's a jungle out there, but Thomas Barr's granny Breda has no fear.
Thomas Barr may be an instant hit with the Irish people following a fine showing in Rio and a composed, articulate and compelling interview on The Late Late Show, but he's not even the coolest person in his own family.
Step forward his granny, Breda French, who accompanied Barr to Copper Face Jacks on Friday night.

Let's hope none of those teachers or off duty gardaí threatened to lead her grandson to the dark side - there would be hell to pay for it.
For his part, Barr spoke to Tubridy about the possibility of getting a medal in the post in the future. It's something he feels quite strongly about, the hollow victory through a culture of doping.
Check this out.
People were well impressed by the Waterford man's poise.
