Coaching in Primary Schools

From mid-February until May, two Sligo I.T. Sport & Recreation students, Oonagh Morrissey from Oranmore, Co. Galway and Castlebar RFC player, Nigel Byrne, will be on work placement coaching rugby in local primary schools under the direction of Youth Development Officer, Gavin Foley. Both coaches were chosen following interviews with Connacht Branch of the IRFU, Sligo RFC and Sligo I.T. personnel. They will coach in 10 primary schools in the Sligo area and the project is being funded by Sligo RFC.
