Four-Time Paralympian Set For New Zealand

Four-Time Paralympian Set For New Zealand

The Irish Paralympic team jetted off to Christchurch in New Zealand last week and included in their number was four-time Paralympian Garrett Culliton. Garret is one of the beneficiaries of support from the IRFU Charitable Trust.

A serious injury in any sport is not something to be treated lightly. Laois man Garrett Culliton is proof positive that it need not be the end of your sporting career.

Garrett, a member of the Irish Paralympian team, is a four-time participant in the Olympics and a long-time recipient of assistance from the IRFU Charitable Trust. His event is the F52 Discus.

Garrett, a founding member of the Irish Wheelchair rugby team, comes from a strong rugby background and previously played for Wanderers. His father Michael won 19 Ireland caps between 1959 and 1964.

The team of eight athletes and seven support staff includes three very experienced athletes who have been been to many World championships and Paralympic Games – Culliton from Laois, Catherine Wayland from Wexford and Rosemarie Tallon from Louth.

We wish Garrett and the rest of the team the very best of luck.
