James adds a golf silver to medals collection

Irish Golfers Kieran Murray, Marie O’Connor, Ron Grainger, James Nolan and John McAleer.
James Nolan has won a silver medal for his Golf Net Score in the European Transplant & Dialysis Games in Sardinia, writes Brian Byrne.

He is one of five golfers on Transplant Team Ireland, who between them won three gold and two silver medals at Cagliari Golf Course.

The others included John McAleer (silver) from Antrim, at 80 the oldest contestant on Team Ireland; Marie O'Connor (gold) from Lahinch, Co Clare; Ron Grainger (gold) from Dublin; and Kieran Murray (gold) from Ramelton, Donegal.

James said the heat on the course was his greatest obstacle, but there was a 'lovely atmosphere' and the week has been extremely enjoyable. This is his 28th international competition as a kidney transplant recipient.
