Special Olympians bag 40 medals
SWIMMERS with the Gorey Area Special Olympics Club returned home recently laden down with a haul of 40 medals and two ribbons following a two day competition in Kildare.
A total of 18 swimmers from the club took part in the Leinster Regional Swimming Finals in The Curragh, and they took home a total of 20 gold, 12 silver, and eight bronze medals, as well as two fourth place ribbons.
The team, which included athletes, coaches, volunteers and parents, had a fantastic weekend, which involved an overnight stay in the beautiful Osprey Hotel in Naas.
They sent a huge thank you to Paul Dempsey and the staff there for a wonderful stay and super support.
