Solution

Special Olympics Ireland is first and foremost a sports organisation for people with an intellectual disability, but it provides athletes with far more than the physical benefits of sport. It's about fun, friendships and team spirit; it's about a feeling of belonging, and ultimately improving quality of life. Special Olympics changes lives in so many different ways. Through sport, athletes develop physically and emotionally, they make new friends, realise their dreams, and know they can fit in.
