Some of you may know Team Ireland’s mascot Tadhg, (pictured below). He made his first appearance at the World Transplant Games in Canada in 2005. However, he came to international recognition at the 2007 World Transplant Games in Bangkok when he was kidnapped by Team GB (Kaylee)! He later went on to meet then President of Ireland, Mary McAleese, to tell his tale.
Tadhg is delighted to be travelling with the team once again as our mascot but does so on the understanding that a comprehensive security programme will be put in place and that his personal safety will be guaranteed by the WTGF. Tadhg will be sharing his thoughts, pictures and stories throughout his stay and would love to answer any questions you may have.
