The competition will take place in Austria
Three Ulster skiers have been selected for Team Ireland to compete at the Special Olympics World Winter Games in Austria 2017.
12-year-old Caolan McConville from Aghagallon County Antrim won two golds at the Special Olympics Ireland Winter Games 2016, as did 16-year-old Sean McCartan from Carryduff County Down.
Adding experience to the fold will be 46-year-old Cyril Walker from Markethill in County Armagh, who won bronze in Japan in 2009.
They'll be part of a 26-strong squad for the competition next year.
Shaun Cassidy, Regional Director, Special Olympics Ulster, says he's thrilled.
