Lakers originally started out as a special Olympics club and we still keep our very strong ties to Special Olympics Ireland.
We are proud to have many athletes compete in numerous challenges over the last 30 years including some World Games Medals, most recently with Paul Condron, one of our members who excelled on the Irish Football t team and Graham Hillick our very own instructor who was chosen as head Coach for Abu Dabi 2019. We compete at regional, national and international level for football, bocce, bowling, athletics and more. But it’s not all about medals, its really about the game, the thrill of the sport, meeting friends, and above all our members having the best time at the sport they love. We are lucky to be able to offer a wide array of sporting opportunities so if there is a particular sport you love most, we can help you to train, enjoy and compete, if you wish to be a part of the Special Olympics this year
