News Alert: Annalise Murphy wins Olympic silver medal at Rio 2016
Congratulations to Annalise Murphy (HSD, 2002-08) who has won an Olympic silver medal representing Team Ireland in the Laser Radial dinghy class competition following a highly competitive medal race in Rio de Janeiro. It is the first time that this particular distinction has been achieved in the history of the school.
Her remarkable achievement follows in a proud tradition of participation in competitive sailing at Olympic level by past pupils of The High School. The last Olympic silver medal in sailing for Ireland was won by James Wilkinson (HSD, 1968-69) with his partner David Wilkins at the 1980 Moscow Olympics in the Flying Dutchman class.
