International Women in Sport Event-Market Place Armagh
A group of year 12 girls attended a conference in the Market Place on Monday morning which gave them the opportunity to listen to top Sports women in this area speaking about their experiences in sport. These speakers were not only interesting they were inspirational and gave a strong message to the audience “Make it Happen”. This included Olympic Gold Medal Winner(1972)- Dame Mary Peters, Gaelic All Star Winner and International Netballer Caroline O Hanlon.
Deirbhile Savage (former St Patrick's High School Pupil) was also present and it was a great opportunity for the panel to wish her the best of luck for the upcoming 'Special Olympics' World Summer Games in Los Angeles in which she will be competing.
