Details have been released of the homecoming arrangements for Portlaoise Paralympian star Gary O'Reilly.

From the Borris Road in Portlaoise, O'Reilly won a bronze medal in Tokyo last week and will touch back down on Irish soil on Wednesday.

It has been confirmed that supporters and family will be lining the Borris Road on Wedneasday September 8 at 7pm to welcome him home. 

Gary will be driven from the church to the house in an open top vehicle. He is expected to start at the church at 7.30 pm.

This will be a momentous occasion for Portlaoise to celebrate one of their own and supporters are invited to join in on the event and to bring your Ireland flags.
