Taoiseach Enda Kenny with Geraldine Finegan
There is great news for Irish athletics, the Irish Prime minister, Taoiseach Enda Kenny has appointed The Irish miler legend and one of Ireland’s most famous Olympians Eamon Coghlan a Senator. The Taoiseach Enda Kenny broke an old tradition by selecting people from non-political backgrounds to sit as Senators. The three times Olympian double gold medallist Eamon Coghlan can now bring the needs of athletics to the fore. Well done Enda Kenny for selecting such a well known and much liked athlete. I won a 5km race in America a few years ago and got the privilege of running the first part of a 5km race with the Legend himself. At the end of the race I was presented with a beautiful Eamon Coghlan 5km crystal award .It is pride of place in my trophy collection. What a lovely down to earth man a natural communicator. I am delighted at his recent achievement and recognition for the sake of sport and athletes in Ireland. We need a fair voice and what greater athlete and sports personality than Eamon Coghlan to do that job.
