Paralympics Ireland held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) online in the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
More than 50 member delegates, Board members and staff were in attendance in a video conference conducted on Zoom.
It was the first Paralympics Ireland AGM to be hosted virtually because of COVID-19 social distancing restrictions put in place by the Irish Government.
The meeting was addressed by President John Fulham, chief executive Miriam Malone and treasurer Tony Dignam, who discussed last year's finances from the annual report.
Fulham opened the AGM by congratulating the achievements of the athletes and staff last year, as well as acknowledging the retirements of double Paralympic discus medallist Orla Barry and Para-swimmer Amy Marren.
There were also condolences extended to Kay McShane, Pat McLoughlin, Grainne Williams and Michael Delaney who all passed away recently.
Fulham closed his statement by approving the decision made by the International Paralympic Committee to postpone the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Malone gave her annual chief executive report, highlighting key issues from the strategic plans from 2019 and for 2020 with an updated version on the impact caused by the coronavirus crisis.
Three motions were also passed by the President and were voted on by those in attendance.
The meeting concluded with closing remarks from Fulham who said he was looking forward to seeing those in attendance at the EGM later in the year.
To date, there have been more than 22,900 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ireland, resulting in the deaths of more than 1,400 people.
