Coaching Opportunities
The joint Level 1 coaching course held between Carlow and Wicklow County boards kicked off last weekend, with the first Friday and Saturday held in Aughrim and Annacurra. The final Saturday this coming week sees the course completed in Presentation de la Salle, Bagnalstown. Well done to the 15 coaches on this course and thanks to the venues for the use of facilities.
