Commenting on the news Ms Malone said; “I am honoured to take on the role of CEO for Par-alympics Ireland, I look forward to repaying the trust shown to me by the board recruitment and selection committee.

"I believe that Paralympics Ireland is an important part of the Irish sporting landscape. I know that with Liam Harbison at the helm for the last number of years it has grown greatly, and had a very successful Paralympics Games in London and Rio. One of the challenges for me and all the staff will be to maintain that trajectory of growth, progression and recognition for the athletes".
