A Letter from President Mary McAleese

Eunice Kennedy Shriver was a visionary who founded the Special Olympics and devoted her life to creating a better and more inclusive world for people with disability. In founding and developing the Special Olympics, which thrived in virtually every country on the planet, she created an organisation and a community in which people with disability could demonstrate their talents and where all of us could participate and learn.
