A very successful motor activities training programme event took place on the end of October in Aras Attracta, Swinford. Nineteen athletes in total took part from all over Mayo and Sligo. The participating athletes were from Ballyhaunis Training Centre, Swinford Special Olympics Club, and Ridgepool from Mayo, and Aoibhneass and Gníomhlann from Sligo. Connie Murrin from Gníomhlann in Sligo recited the Athlete's Oath on the day: “Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
All athletes successfully completed each of the three competitions. The organisers would like to thank all of the Special Olympics volunteers, management and staff of Aras Attracta who made the event possible. A special word of appreciation goes to Teresa Ward, MATP co-ordinator, who adjudicated on the day and was on hand to present awards to the athletes.
