The Paralympian Recognition Programme, which was launched last Summer, will see each Irish Paralympian receive a pin and a unique number in order to recognise their contribution to the Paralympic movement in Ireland. A special event will also be held later this year to honour the athletes.
The Programme, which is being organised by our Athletes’ Commission, aims to recognise every Irish Paralympic athlete from the first Games in 1960 all the way through to present day.
The sole surviving member of the first Irish Paralympic team from Rome in 1960; Oliver Murphy was presented with the number one pin at the launch last year.
We have complied a list of Paralympians to date and you can see it here.
We haven’t got everyone listed however and would appreciate if anyone that can help us get in contact with past Irish Paralympians, please get in touch with us on email@example.com or indeed phone us on 01-6251175.
