Olympians at the Festival

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.
