Connacht Development News
Galway have ran three foundation courses during the month of March. March 9th in Turloughmore saw 26 coaches trained up to foundation level. Rahoon hosted on March 23rd with an attendance of 22 participants. Athenry held a foundation course on March 30th in Newcastle with another full course.
Thanks to all who attended the courses and to our tutors, Declan Monaghan, Aine Fanning, Niall Jackman, Davy Carroll and Eileen Gleeson. There is a huge appetite for coach education in Connacht with foundation courses and Level One courses in each county. This is hugely positive for the game of Camogie in Connacht.
