It's official, we can't get enough of Katie Taylor. The annual Sport Sentiment Index conducted by PSG Sponsorship has served to highlight just how much we are all enamoured with the Bray boxer.

The survey which questioned a representational 1,000 adult shows that the five time world champion is Ireland's most admired sports star as well as her world title win being named the greatest sporting achievement of 2014.

The victory in Jeju was also named as Ireland's most iconic sporting moment, beating out Brian O'Driscoll's retirement into second place.


Elsewhere in the survey, soccer is once again listed as Ireland's favourite with Gaelic Games narrowly edging out rugby to claim second place while we as a sporting nation are most looking forward to the Rugby World Cup in 2015.
