Tunes to Get You Pumped

Inspired by Analise Murphy and the O’Donovan Brothers to get moving? Here’s a soundtrack to kickstart the motivation.

IT’S BEEN AN emotional Olympics – and definitely for the Irish.

But because this is our little piece of escapism in the motoring mag, we want to focus on the positive and pay tribute to Annalise Murphy and the O’Donovan brothers, and all our heroic Olympic athletes.

With those legends in mind, get your energy up and prepare for a jog to the shops with our Tunes To Get You Pumped soundtrack.

Get moving!
