East Coast FM's Padraic Moran

Boccia is a precision ball sport, similar to bocce.

Congratulations are in order for Bray native Padraic Moran, who took home Gold at the Boccia Challenger in Antrim over the weekend - Right in time for his birthday. 

This competition saw players from Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, England, Wales, and Scotland competing across the four Paralympic Boccia Classifications.

Boccia is a precision ball sport, similar to bocce. The sport is contested at local, national and international levels, by athletes with physical disabilities. From a seated position, players propel balls to land as close as possible to a white marker ball, known as the Jack. Two sides compete as individuals, pairs or as a team of three over a set number of ends.
