Remember that, eh... gorgeous jacket Ken Egan wore during the Olympics?
Well now you can buy it in a charity auction. It’s signed and it’s for a worthy cause.

WE ALL HAD a quiet giggle behind his stonewashed back during the past fortnight. But now Olympic silver medallist Ken Egan has made his clothing infamy count for something worthwhile after the flame went out in London..

That jacket, that piece of stonewashed denim-ish awesomeness is now signed by Katie Taylor, Michael Conlon, John Joe Nevin and Paddy Barnes. And it can now be yours if you bid in the Temple Street Children’s Hospital auction.

At last count the bidding was at €1,000. You can top that by e-mailing your details to or call Emma in TSCH on 01 8784344.
