I’ve always been involved in sports and when I was attending school, swimming was my favourite. When school finished and I began attending a day centre it just became a recreational activity with family until I met a woman named Valerie Davison who is the founder of Ripples Special Olympics Sports Club. She invited me along to one of their swimming sessions and I loved it. Everyone was friendly and welcoming and I had a great time in the pool. I began going every week and met lots of new people who I still know today. That was nearly 20 years ago and I am still swimming twice a week and competing in competitions for Special Olympics Ireland.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
