Special Olympics comes to Kiltipper


Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone was on hand yesterday to present awards at the Special Olympics Ireland Eastern Region Pitch and Putt Competition at Glenville on Kiltipper Road.

The players had come to do battle in the Special Olympics Regional Advancement and they got to experience all four seasons as well as some excellent Pitch and Putt in what turned out to be a wonderful day.
