Today marks 365 days until the opening ceremony of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Permanent TSB, as the primary partner of Team Ireland hosted a special presentation by CEO Eamonn Crowley for all European 2023 Games medallists and their families.

Thirteen days of competition with 121 Irish athletes competing across 17 sports produced a total of 13 medals being won by Irish athletes, including 4 gold medals, 4 silver medals and 5 bronze medals as well as several Paris 2024 games qualification spots.

Team Ireland enjoyed success across rugby, boxing, kickboxing, athletics and taekwondo.

A special presentation was made to Sarah Lavin today as she officially received her 110 metres bronze medal from the games. Due to the format of the Games, she was unable to officially receive her medal at the event in Poland, which saw different divisions competing across several days.

The announcement that she had secured bronze by just 0.001 of a second was made to Lavin, only after she had returned home to Ireland, and following the results of competition in divisions one and two.

“I am absolutely thrilled and honoured to be here today with my fellow athletes to officially receive my European Medal,” she said.

“The journey so far has been incredible and wouldn’t be possible, if it was not for our incredible sponsors like Permanent TSB supporting both me and the whole Team Ireland on our journey to Paris 2024, in addition to my coaches, family and friends.”

“The resilience and strength that all our Team Ireland athletes have shown in their commitment and dedication to Team Ireland is incredible,” added Eamon Crowley.

“We are so pleased to be here today to celebrate this magnificent occasion with them and their families. We wish them all the best on their journey to Paris and will be supporting them every step of the way from all our branch communities across Ireland.”
