Peter Collins Left Viewers Puzzled During RTÉ's Tuesday Night Athletics Coverage

Peter Collins Left Viewers Puzzled During RTÉ's Tuesday Night Athletics Coverage
By PJ Browne Updated

Towards the end of a momentous night for Ireland on the track - one where Thomas Barr qualified for the final of the 400m hurdles - Peter Collins left many wondering what the hell he was one about.

Cryptically, as RTÉ coverage cut back to the studio, Collins referenced what he called 'the tweet'.

By the way, just in relation to 'the tweet'. Some tweets deserve acknowledgement and publication - that sort of rubbish doesn't because it clearly comes from people who absolutely don't know what they're talking about.

No other reference to 'the tweet' was made by Collins.

A candidate for 'the tweet' is one sent by Eamon Coghlan on Tuesday evening - seven or so hours before Thomas Barr's brilliant run.

Coghlan disagreed with Irish Athletics' assertion that Rio has been a success for Ireland on the track.

The problem with this possibility is that Coghlan could hardly be accused of not knowing what he's talking about. He is a legend of Irish athletics, having won a World Championship gold in the 5000m in 1983.
