Support our Future Champions
There were emotional scenes at Dublin Airport today Friday (22 March) as the 91-strong Team Ireland squad returned home to a heroes’ welcome from the Special Olympics World Summer Games in Abu Dhabi.
The team were carrying some serious excess baggage, as they made their way into the arrivals hall, with a sensational haul of 86 medals (30 gold, 29 silver and 27 bronze). Greeted by rapturous applause from family, friends and fans, who turned out in huge numbers from right across the country, the athletes also returned with friendships and memories to last a lifetime.
