Special Olympics congratulations

SIR, — I would like to applaud the success and athletic prowess of our local Down Special Olympics team at the Special Olympics Ireland Games in Dublin recently.

This team, under the inspirational leadership and direction of Frank Donnelly, from Saul, has shown through continuous practice how its skills have been developed on the sports field.  

To me, they are true ambassadors for the Down area and deserve our praise and commendation. Having been associated with the team for several years, I am extremely proud of their success and offer my congratulations and best wishes for the future.

Yours etc,


Former South Down MP.
