Row in behind us! thumbnailChronicle deputy editor Damian Mullan chats to ‘Home to Portrush’ crew members Ally Cooper and Gareth Barton at the Ramore Complex on Monday. The men have been talking off their experiences in the 3,000 mile Talisker Whiskey Challenge.

PORTRUSH'S record-breaking rowers say they hope their achievements will help inspire others to do incredible things.
The four man crew of 'Home to Portrush' smashed the existing world record by crossing the Atlantic Ocean in just 31 days earlier this year.
Their efforts have already helped to raise over £30,000 for a number of selected charities including the Portrush Lifeboat.
Now, they want others to row in behind them and maintain the legacy created by the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge.
Speaking to the media on Monday for the first time since the conclusion of the race on Antigua, crew member Ally Cooper admitted that their success proved what could be achieved.
