A Special Olympics national gold medallist was the principal guest at an event organised by Tomhaggard Women's Shed.

The group performed 'Mrs Dooley's Table' as part of the fringe festival programme to coincide with this year's St Anne's Novena in the village.

The special guest at the event was Lisa Redmond who is from the locality and who won two gold medals and one silver medal at the Special Olympics Leinster Finals in Dublin.

Ms Redmond participated in gymnastics events and in addition to winning the gold and silver medals she has also been selected to represent Ireland in Dubai next year at the World Special Olympics.

Members of the Tomhaggard Women's Shed congratulated Ms Redmond on her achievements to-date and they wished her the best of luck flying the flag for Ireland next year.

A spokesperson for the Women's Shed commented: 'We are all very proud of her achievements and we wish her the best of luck when she heads off to Dubai next year.'
