Paralympics Ireland has asked the public to help put them in contact with past Paralympic athletes from the country.
The initiative, known as the Paralympian Recognition Programme, was officially launched in July 2016 and is organised by the body's Athletes' Commission.
Every Irish Paralympian will receive a pin and a unique number in order to recognise their contribution to the Paralympic Movement in Ireland.
Anne Ebbs, who founded the Paralympic Council of Ireland which then became Paralympics Ireland in 1987, received number 22.
"It takes great sacrifice, hard work and massive dedication to become a Paralympian," said James McCarthy, chair of the Athletes' Commission.
"It is a very unique group as, since the first Games in 1960, just over 250 athletes have been afforded the honour of being selected to be an Irish Paralympian.
"Paralympics Ireland will recognise and celebrate the achievement of each Paralympian and will acknowledge their contribution, not just to Paralympic sport, but to sport in Ireland."
Paralympics Ireland is hoping members of the public will be able to help locate and get in contact with all past Irish Paralympic athletes.
A special gala will be held later this year to acknowledge the athletes.
