TWO Donegal men are representing the county well at the European Transplant Games which got underway in Krakow on Sunday.

Kieran Murray from Tullymountain, Ramelton, a newcomer to Transplant Team Ireland, got off to a great start on the first day of the European Transplant and Dialysis Games in Krakow by securing a Gold in the 5km race.

Kieran was delighted with his success and said: “My time is a personal best for me. I exceeded my own expectations. Thanks to my donor because without them I wouldn’t have this opportunity and thanks so much to the support of my family, friends and Milford Athletics Club.


Fellow Donegal man Hugo Boyce from Clonmany also put in a good performance at the Games on Sunday in the Petanque singles and doubles events.

The Games conclude on Friday with a Gala Dinner being held in the Wieliczka Salt Mine on Saturday before the competitors travel back to Donegal.
