The Kerry Association London will honour the two Kerry Athletes competing in the London Paralympics Games with a special function in the Crown Moran Hotel
Friday evening (September 7). Roy Guerin, is competing in his third Paralympic Games. Four years ago he came sixth in the 100 metre wheelchair sprint but this year he has set his sights on the powerlifting competition.
Ian Costelloe is a sailor from Kilorglin and is competing in his first Paralympics.
Admission is by charitable donation and a contribution will be made to the Paralympics Ireland on the night to help the organisation offset some of the costs in getting the two athletes to London.
And the London Rose, Nora Ni Fhlannagain, will also be in attendance and the Kerry Association London will make a presentation to her to mark her outstanding efforts as this year's London Rose in promoting the Tralee festival in London and in promoting the Irish community in Britain back in Ireland.
Meanwhile nominations are open for the Kerry Person of the Year. This year's presentation will be made at the Crown Moran Hotel in Cricklewood on October 26.
The association hold regular meetings at The Kingdom Bar and new members are always welcome.
