It is with great sadness that Paralympics Ireland have been informed of the death of Anthony Hegarty.
Anthony was a hugely popular and much respected member of the Irish Paralympic team that competed at the Paralympic Games in London 2012.
Anthony sailed in the Sonar event where his boat finished in a brilliant 11th place at the London Games. The Cork native was joined in the boat by team -mates John Twomey and Ian Costelloe.
Paralympics Ireland would like to extend our sympathies to the family and friends of Anthony.
