Taylor took outright No.1 position in the latest ONSIDE STAR TRACK 2017 research, followed by Conor McGregor and Brian O'Driscoll. Outside of sport, Ryan Tubridy retains the number one status as the most admired television or radio personality.

That puts the take from television screenings alone at a monster €77m.
