Sophie Conroy was our hockey coach before Christmas. She coached children from 4th-6th classes. She was very impressed with our brilliant children and wanted to let them know of training for all age groups after school. Underneath is a copy of her email which will give information to all budding hockey players out there.

Sophie here from the Irish hockey.Firstly I would like to thank both staff and students of the school for being so welcoming and making the job more pleasant. I was taken back by how well mannered and nice the children were and i’m sure that is down to the schools ethos and great efforts from the staff.

Many of the children expressed an interest in continuing to play hockey. I mentioned to them before the break about a club Glenanne that would be quite local and is always welcoming to new players and could build great foundations for those who would like to play. The details for the training include:
Time:          7-8pm
Date:           Every Friday night
Location:    St Colmcille’s Community School

                   Scholarstown Road
                   Knocklyon, Dublin 16

Age:            Seniors Infants and above
Please also see for any other details.
All children are welcome to go up and try whether they have been in the program or not. Sticks can be provided but id the children could have there own mouth guards and shin guards were possible it would be appreciated.
