TY Reflection

As I slowly come closer to the end of Transtion Year, I’ve started to think about some of the most memorable parts of TY from start to finish. Some I won’t forget and some I’ll be easily reminded of, either way there are so many. Starting off with a kayaking trip to Moville, I was […]

FAI Disability Awareness Training

On Wednesday the 26th of April two men came from FAI to teach us about their Football For All programmes and teams.
