Congratulations to Sports Club 15 who celebrated their clubs 10 year anniversary last Saturday, 10th May.  They definitely celebrated in style at Weston Airport where athletes and some of the clubs volunteers got the chance to enjoy a flight from the airport.  Well done to all those who volunteered from Weston and from Sports Club 15 to mark the occasion in such a memorable way.  Have a look at some of the photos below.

On Monday 12th May the members of Kenmare Golf Club hosted the area Golf skills competition for Special Olympics Munster. There were 48 athletes present on the day and the excitement reached fever pitch when a surprise guest Kathryn Thomas of the 'Voice of Ireland'  arrived to take part in the Opening Ceremony. The frequent showers did not dampen the enthusiasm of the volunteers and athletes on the day and there was a great sing song started while the athletes were waiting for their awards. The guest presenters on the day included Kathryn Thomas, John Brennan from 'At Your Service', who made an appearance and members of the GUI and the ILGU were on hand to award the prizes. A great day was had by all. You can view all the photos from the day here....

The volunteers from EMC hosted the level one athletics on the 10th May in CIT. It was a  great day of competition and fun and everyone enjoyed themselves very much despite the showers and wind. Many of the senior managers from EMC and their partner companies were present to give out the awards. EMC TV were also present on the day making a documentary about EMC’s involvement with Special Olympics so there was a great atmosphere created. The event team was led by Jim Casey and the competition manager was Aisling O’Mahony. Well done to all the EMC volunteers who made the day very special for everyone. You can view all the photos from the day here.
