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.

There were high hopes ahead of the first weekend of the Super 8s, but unfortunately the football didn't live...
