Olympic silver medallist, Annalise Murphy, visited a number of schools in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown yesterday, with An Cathaoirleach of dlr, Cllr Cormac Devlin. Annalise visited the schools to showcase the opportunities to learn sailing along our beautiful coastline.

Following the visits to the five schools, an Cathaoirleach of dlr, Cllr Cormac 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. 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', Cllr Devlin added.

The visits were organised by the dlr Sports Partnership and the Irish Sailing Association.
