Olympic silver medalist Annalise Murphy visited a number of schools across Dún Laoghaire yesterday with An Cathaoirleach of Dun Laoghaire Cllr Cormac Devlin.
Their visits were to highlight the multitude of opportunities available to learn sailing along our beautiful coastline.
Following the visits to the schools, Cllr Devlin said: “I was proud to travel from school to school across the County with Annalise Murphy. Her achievements, and most of all her message to young people, is one that encourages them to dream big and not fear failure. She is a wonderful ambassador not only for sailing but for sport generally.”
Devlin continued “I commend the Irish Sailing Association and dlr for partnering together on this initiative. As a coastal county we must all work to promote sailing to the next generation so that the public utilise our waterfront more. The children we met look up to Annalise and we all look forward to her continued success.”
