Ann Ebbs honoured
ATHLETES, coaches, sponsors and supporters of the 2012 Irish Paralympic Team gathered in the Moran Red Cow Hotel for the Inaugural OCS Irish Paralympic Awards Ceremony. The gala event, proudly sponsored by OCS Ireland is the first of its kind in Irish Paralympic Sport, honouring the achievements, successes and contributions of the Irish Paralympic team and its support network over the London cycle.
The Irish Paralympic Order was presented to Anne Ebbs from Donore, one of the foremost drivers of the organisation since its foundation.
She was the first Secretary General of the Paralympic Council of Ireland and served from 1987-2008 in that role. Anne was instrumental in developing national recognition for Paralympic Sport and securing support from State Agencies.
