|Mayor Muir and Marie Devine with|
gift presented by The Mayor
Earlier this week I congratulated local woman Marie Devine who won 6 medals at the World Transplant Games which were recently held in Durban.
Marie won two gold, three silver and one bronze medal in track events. Marie received a kidney transplant nine years ago.
Marie is such an inspirational figure. She has shown that having a transplant does not have to be a barrier in your life.
Winning six medals was a magnificent achievement. Everybody in North Down is immensely proud of her results.
I hope other people who have had transplants will seek to emulate Marie's achievements and get involved in local sports activities.
