The marvellous achievements of the members of the Monaghan Special Olympics team
was honoured with a reception on stage for the members and their coaches. Minister
Heather Humphreys, Monaghan Rose Hannah Mooney and County GAA Star, Conor McManus
were there to recognise their awards and to congratulate them. They were all very
excited and delighted with the ceremony and that was very clear from their responses
to Sean McCaffrey when he interviewed them. Congratulations to all.
Lily McQuaid, Knockatallon, celebrated 70 years recently and at her house party she
accepted donations towards the Special Olympics instead of presents and as a result
she presented €1,600 to the group on Saturday.
