Orla Barry Sets European Senior Record

Leevale paralympic athlete, Orla Barry, recently set a new European Senior Record of 27.98m in the discus at the German Open National Championships, held in Berlin on 7-8 June. This is a phenomenal achievement for Orla who has held the European record of 25.24 since 2006 before improving to 26.26 earlier this year.

Hopefully it will be on to even greater things for the Ladysbridge athlete this year as the Irish team for Beijing this autumn is due to be announced within the next couple of weeks.
