Home are the heroes!
Congratulations to the medal winners and participants from Dundalk Special Olympic Club and St Therese Special Olypmpic Club who returned home from the game in Limerick last weekend with an impressive haul of medals.
The local athletes were competing as part of the Leinster squad and Dundalk Special Olympic Club returned with 11 gold, seven silver and three bronze medals while St Therese's won a total of seven medals.
Qualifying for the games, being selected for Leinster and representing your club is a great honour for any athlete or sports person but to achieve success is extra special.
All the athletes and their families had a great time at the competition and fully deserve the success brought about by their own hard work and dedication.
