Sprinter joins Irish Olympic Team

The Olympic Council of Ireland (OCI) has taken delivery of a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter minibus intended for use by the many national sports federations accredited to the OCI.

The vehicle, dressed in Team Ireland livery, was presented to the OCI by the International Olympic Committee as part of their Olympic Solidarity programme.

IOC representative Dieter Kuehnle said it would be 'extensively used by Ireland's many Olympic sports federations for transportation to competitions at home and abroad'.
