Muir congratulates Pollock on Rio Olympics selection

Councillor Muir with Dr Paul Pollock
at Queens 5k in 2015
I have congratulated Holywood man Dr Paul Pollock on his selection to take part in the Rio Olympics later this year. Paul has been selected to take part in the Marathon as part of the Irish team which also includes Kevin Seaward and Mick Clohisey.

After some amazing achievements over previous years, including completing the Dublin Marathon as the first Irish Man in 2012 in a blistering 2hrs 16mins 33seconds and then the Berlin Marathon last year in 2hrs 15mins 38seconds I have been delighted to watch Paul’s progress towards Rio. With his foot injury now healed I have every confidence that Paul will be a runway success later this year, bringing yet more joy and pride for his family, friends, the people of Holywood and beyond. I wish him every success and good wishes.
