Following on from yesterday’s announcement that Kilkenny woman Mary Fitzgerald has made Team Ireland for the Paralympics, it seems another woman with local ties is also heading to Tokyo.
Rosemary Gaffney has been named one of the equestrian hopefuls.
Though from Clonmel in Co Tipperary, Paralympics Ireland has confirmed to KCLR News that she lives in Kilkenny, with links specifically to the Piltown area (more here).
Huge congratulations to Rosemary Gaffney on her selection for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics! Rosemary will be competing in Para Dressage alongside Michael Murphy, Kate Kerr-Horan and Tamsin Addison 💥
