The Special Olympics 2003 Flame comes to Mohill
The following are a few photos taken when the Olympic torch arrived in Mohill on
Sunday morning the 15th June 2003. There was a great turn-out to welcome
the torch and the law-enforcement team that brought the torch to Mohill.
The organisation was a credit to the hardworking
the many speeches, Art Ridge gave an inspirational speech, and referring to the
large turn-out, noted that actions speak louder than words. Mohill was due
to host the team from Congo Kinshasa for the 2003 Special Olympics. There
was bitter disappointment in the town as the team were one of three that failed
to travel to Ireland due to visa difficulties.
