“We were able to share our coaching techniques, playing philosophies and methodologies with over 80 coaches of all levels across Ireland.”

Aaron McNeill, the Swans' Ireland recruitment co-ordinator, added. “The feedback from coaches was excellent and we are proud to continue our support to coaches and clubs in Ireland.

“We look forward to delivering future events.”
