SF sports spokesperson welcomes home Ireland’s Olympians
The Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Sport, Sandra McLellan has today welcomed Team Ireland home from the Olympic Games.
Deputy McLellan said:
“The fact that Irish athletes won five medals at the Olympic Games in London shows that with access to adequate financial support and proper training facilities Irish athletes can compete with the best in the world and win. For a small island to have achieved such success is testament to the commitment, discipline and athletic ability of the athletes concerned.
“There was a huge sense of expectation and excitement throughout the country this week, and Team Ireland brought people many hours of enjoyment and a great sense of hope and pride to the entire country. We are all immensely proud of their achievements and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate them for being excellent ambassadors for Ireland and to wish them all the best in the future. ”
