DUP Mid-Ulster MLA, Ian McCrea has cycled three miles to show his support for the Special Olympics Ulster at the launch event held at Stormont.

The Ulster Team will be taking part in the Ireland Games in June.

Speaking at the event, Ian McCrea sai he was delighted to attend the Special Olympics Ulster launch.

“To show support we were asked to cycle, run or walk a collective 500 miles which is the same distance return from Belfast to Limerick,” said Mr McCrea.

He said he was happy to contribute three miles to help in achieving that target.

“More importantly I was delighted to show my support for our 245 Ulster athletes and wish them every success as they embark on the Ireland Games in June,” he said.
