Laois Gaels and DCU to deliver webinar on combining college life with sport

GAA rules

Laois Gaels, Laois Coaching and Games and DCU are teaming up to provide a webinar this evening.

The focus of the webinar, which gets underway at 6pm, will be about combining college life with sport.

The presentation will centre on what DCU has to offer current sixth year students, including those who are on county panels, that are currently thinking of their third level options.

Former Laois footballer David Sweeney, who works in DCU Sport & Wellbeing, will give the presentation.

While Laois Gaels Chairman Bryan Breen will also address the meeting.

Former Laois footballer Leo Turley, a member of Laois Gaels committee, spoke about the webinar on the Talking Sport Podcast with LaoisToday recently.

He said: “David is going to be doing this webinar based on young people and explaining how college and GAA are blended together.

“This is being run by Laois Gaels and Laois Games Development in conjunction with DCU.

“This is aimed at young people from 16 to 19 who are interested in going to college and it may give them some pointers on what to do.”
