Castlerea Prison raise the flag for Olympian Aoife O’Rourke - July 27th, 2021



Castlerea Prison staff raised the Olympic flag today ahead of Castlerea’s Aoife O’Rourke boxing match tomorrow morning in Tokyo. We were joined by her parents Kevin and Anne for the occasion, where Governor Anthony Shally wished her every success on behalf of all the staff.  Local staff who know Aoife and her family also gathered for a photo of the flag raising outside the front of the prison. Aoife is scheduled to fight tomorrow at 10.18am, local time.
