Calling all Doctors, Nurses and Physiotherapists!!

We are currently seeking volunteer doctors, nurses and physiotherapists to support the Ireland Games in Dublin from June 14th-17th.

Your skills, training and experience are needed to ensure that the 1600 athletes competing in over 13 sports have the highest quality of medical support and care as they compete in the biggest sporting event of the year.

Louise Tinne  (RNID) has been a Medical Volunteer with Special Olympics Ireland for 13 years . Over this time she has volunteered on the Medical Team at numerous Regional Events as well as European Youth Games in 2006 and World Summer Games in Athens in 2011 and LA in 2015.

“Thirteen years later being part of the medical team with Special Olympics has been rewarding, exhausting and addictive. To watch the face of families as their child/sibling participates at national or world level is so rewarding. Watching the faces of the entire place as tears flow freely as medals are won and lost….you will experience emotion like never before!! And know you have played a small role in supporting and making this happen there really is no better way to give your free time”. 

Louise Tinne, SOI Volunteer and RNID
