New Clare S&C Coaches
Clare GAA have been extremely fortunate to engage with three ambitious individuals who are eager to make a mark is exactly what Clare GAA need and one is sure that their energy will be of a huge benefit to the players that they will coach in both the Development Squads & Post-Primary Schools. Rob Mulcahy, Lead S&C Coach, Clare GAA announced that
Hugh, Bríon & Criostóir will be delivering S&C sessions within Post-Primary schools for U14 & U15 Football & Hurling Players in conjunction with Clare GAA’s Long Term Athletic Development Plan. They are also going to be delivering pitch & gym-based sessions for the U14/15/16 Hurling & Football development squads. They are going to be coaching over 500 Players within the County on a weekly basis. They are going to be a huge asset to Clare GAA and I look forward to working with them over the coming months.

A native of Limerick City, where I attended Ardscoil Rís Secondary School representing them in Junior and Senior Cup rugby. After finishing school, I completed an undergraduate degree in Sport and Exercise Sciences from the University of Limerick, during which I began coaching. A summer coaching soccer in the United States and eight months with the West Coast Eagles AFL team in Perth, Australia, enhanced my desire to do S&C full time. After returning home, I completed a masters in Strength and Conditioning from the Institute of Technology Carlow before going back to Ardscoil Rís as their Junior Cup S&C for their ‘21/22 season. I am looking forward to be involved with the Clare U14 and U15 hurling teams for the upcoming season.
