Ireland ... searches for the Irish Paralympians.

Paralympics Ireland is calling on members of the public in a bid to find and contact every Irish Paralympic athlete since the first Paralympic Games in Rome, in 1960. The initiative, known as ‘Paralympian Recognition Programme’, was officially launched on 2 July at the ‘More Than Sport’ fundraising ball and is organised by the Athletes’ Commission.

Each Irish Paralympian will receive a pin and a unique number in order to recognise their contribution to the Paralympic Movement in Ireland. Paralympian Oliver Murphy received the first one and Anne Ebbs, who founded the Paralympic Council of Ireland (now Paralympics Ireland) in 1987, received the number 22.
