Claire first tried boccia when she went along to local club and tried it out. Discovering she really enjoyed the sport and had a talent for it, she was invited to join the boccia players at the Ulster squad.
Previously classified as BC4, Claire has been reclassified to a BC2 player and found great success in 2015. As the number 1 ranked player in Northern Ireland she has also helped the BC1/BC2 team to gold at the European Team and Pairs Championships and silver at the Rio test event.
Claire has a passion for music, especially Snow Patrol and Biffy Clyro, and keeps several tortoises and other reptiles.
