GALA HALL OF FAME AWARD

The Gala Hall of Fame Award was presented to Kilkenny Special Olympics Club on February 14th.
This award is awarded to clubs who embody the spirit, enthusiasm, drive and attitude of Special Olympics Ireland.

On the night athletes, parents and volunteers were delighted to welcome along Christopher Curtin from Gala and John De Loughry from the local Gala store with a special Kilkenny welcome going to their great supporter Kilkenny Hurling Manager Brian Cody.



Kilkenny Special Olympics Club was founded in February 2010 with 29 athletes and today has 50 athletes competing in six sports:
Athletics, Bocce, Gymnastics, Kayaking, Pitch & Putt and Swimming.

The club in the past six months have expanded to include the Young Athletes Programme and on the night young children aged from 4 - 7 years showed their prowess and development through their participation in the fundamental movement skills of throwing, catching, jumping and balancing.

Athlete Lucy Dollard will be representing the club in March at the World Summer Games in Abu Dhabi.

BEST OF LUCK LUCY !!!!

INTRODUCTION TO ATHLETE LEADERSHIP WORKSHOP

February 16th saw eighteen athletes along with 14 mentors attend an Introduction to Athlete Leadership workshop in Special Olympics Ireland HQ. Drogheda Toastmasters delivered a workshop on Public Speaking whilst Audrey Hutton, athlete leader and Regional Committee member presented on getting involved in Athlete Leadership. She spoke about her own experiences and the benefits she has attained through Athlete Leadership.

The day was a fantastic success and we hope to see many of those athletes that attended become Athlete Leaders themselves in the near future.
