Paralympics Ireland has announced a special homecoming event for the victorious Irish Paralympic team at Dublin airport on Monday 10th September at 7.00pm.

The Irish team have landed 15 medals in the games so far with seven gold, three silver and five bronze so far and fans will get a chance to show they’re thanks and support in Dublin on Monday evening.

Irish team Chef de Mission Liam Harbison said: “By the time the team return they will have been away from home and their families; parents, husbands, wives, fiancés, partners, children, and in many cases their work for a full month, so whilst they are grateful for the offer of a homecoming event they would prefer to meet the public who have supported them at the airport on Monday evening, and further celebrate their achievements publicly in their local communities.”

The public event will be followed by recpetions at Aras on Uachtarain and Farmleigh where the athletes will be honoured by Taoiseach Enda Kenny, President Michael D.Higgins and other members of government.
