The 2018 European Para Swimming Championships are coming to Dublin in 2018, another massive win for Ireland as a venue for staging major sporting events.
“To think that we will have the chance to show our families, friends and the public just what we have dedicated our lives to is so very special,” said Ellen Keane, Paralympics medallist and hoping to shine in her home town next year.
“Representing Ireland on the international stage is a tremendous honour and to do so in front of a home crowd is what we all dream of. We are so excited to showcase elite Para sport to the country and provide this platform to grow the sport of Para swimming in Ireland, and hopefully build a precious legacy towards Tokyo and beyond.”
