Let The Games begin. Take inspiration from Mark Rohan. He was an inter-county Gaelic footballer with Westmeath before he suffered serious road injuries in a road accident in 2001.
That left him paralysed from the chest down.
He didnt give up and now he is representing us - Ireland - in the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. Rohan, one of 49 athletes chosen to represent Ireland at the Games which opened on August 22nd. With World Championship-winning experience behind him, Mark is one of the favourites to succeed in London, but I am also biased as Mark is from the same Parish as me at home... Has to be a winner!
Here is his story:
