Paralympians 

The weather didn't deter these athletes at all levels from finishing what was a great day. No fewer than six Paralympians from various sports fought for the prize of becoming Ireland's 1st Paratriathlon Relay Champion. 
There were some quick times to be had, and it was just great to be part of what was a super day.
