Noelle to let it fly in Rio!


Best wishes to Milford’s Noelle Lenihan who will compete for Ireland in the discus event at the Rio Paralympics this Saturday, at 9.30pm. The competition will be broadcast live on RTE Television, and Noelle’s family and friends would like to invite everyone to Collins’s Lounge to watch her throw. Noelle, who is a student at Hazelwood College, already holds the world record and won a world silver medal in Doha, and she also has a European Championship gold medal for the discus in the F38 category. She has been coached by her father Jim and by Tom Galvin of North Cork Athletic Club, which she has been a member of since 2008 when she was eight years old.
