Claire Taggart Paralympian - 24th April 2017
*

Claire Taggart with President Colin McCarthy


Claire from Larne was a member of the Paralympic Great Britain team to Rio playing boccia. She is also a member of the British Paralympic Association and works with Uplift Theatre.

She suffers from dystonia which causes muscle contraction and shortening as well as spasms and abnormal posturing. She gave a clear insight into the impact of her condition, her relentless dedication to her sport and her experience of travelling to and competing in Rio.

Claire is a truly inspirational young lady.
