A crowd of people turned out in Emyvale last Saturday evening in honour of and to congratulate local woman and Triple World Champion Louise McKenna.

Louise won her impressive title at the World Single Lift Championships in Telford, England two weeks ago and she paraded her three trophies through the village last weekend.

Louise, who is daughter of Antoinette and Martin McKenna, was one of 100 lifters (50 men and 50 women) from the Irish Drug Free Powerlifting Association who represented Ireland at the three-day event. Many other nationalities from across the world also took part.

It was an intense three days for Louise who competed in Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift.
