“Sport gives you a great outlet and it helps to keep a community together. When life and work are hectic, it might be that the only break you get is the hour and a half of training. What it has taught me, as a coach, is that it should be the good part of the day,” Wall says.
"I was never going to make two halves of myself with the job here. It’s not that any job is more or less important, but I saw, over the last two years with Kilmallock, at senior level, that being involved with a club team is very much all-encompassing.
“One thing that I learned from John Brudair, in Kilmallock, is that, with a club team, it’s not something that you can do properly if you’re spreading yourself thinly. You don’t want to do any club half-right, but when it comes to your own, you don’t compromise that in any way, shape, or form.”
