O’Connor, a native of Cullen in the Duhallow region, started in late September, with an official launch of his new role taking place recently in Bishopstown GAA club.
“I am putting a major emphasis in all my sessions on making sure that kids are using these movements through fun games and activities. All these sessions are very inclusive so it is not aimed at the strongest or sporty children but that everyone can take part and feel like they are contributing and the main thing: having fun.”
“The level of co-operation between these two clubs is to be commended and represents a template for other clubs in the future. We are thrilled at their innovative and collaborative approach and encourage their communities to embrace Fachtna O’Connor’s training and the vision of the clubs,” said Ronan Dwane, Cork County Coaching Officer.
