Special Olympics, Limerick

 Special Olympics, Limerick

As part of the Special Olympics Limerick 2010, the Community Outreach team collaborated with the University of Limerick to provide a Creative Day for athletes, their families and carers.

Inspired by James Hanley's portrait of Ronnie Delany in the National Portrait Collection, every participant was asked to design their own patchwork panel with words and symbols that reflected their Olympic experience, and the memories they would take with them. Each panel was then photographed and made into a unique greeting card that the participant could take with them to collect signatures and memories, or just as a souvenir.
