Dublin's Philly McMahon gave a very fine interview to Ryan Tubridy on tonight's Late Late Show in which he recounted the death of his brother John, a drug addict who died in London at the age of just 31. McMahon then explained his reasoning behind his belief that the government should decriminalise drugs.
Here is some of the reaction the interview provoked online:

Sports people sometimes get labelled as something they are not but @PhillyMcMahon has just proved how grounded GAA players in particular are

Fine suit Philly McMahon is wearing. Can't even see Gooch in the pocket...
