Waterside Councillor and Deputy Mayor Christopher Jackson confirmed that he will be making the proposal at this week’s full council meeting.
Cllr. Jackson said: “Danny Quigley’s incredible feat of ten Ironman races in ten consecutive days really captured the imagination of the entire region and inspired so many of us.
“He raised over £100,000 for local charities as well as a huge amount of awareness around mental health and the importance of sport and physical activity in promoting a healthy body and mind.
“It is only right that we recognise this remarkable achievement and my motion will ask the mayor to call a special meeting of council to confer the freedom of the city on Danny Quigley.
“Danny certainly united this city behind him and I hope that all parties can support my motion and ensure we pay a fitting tribute to one of our homegrown heroes.”Tags:
