A very successful careers information night was held in The Clubrooms on Friday night. The idea to arrange such an event was part of Coaching Officer Stephen Bohan’s plan for 2018. To bring the plan to fruition, Stephen set up a committee which included Odran Feely, Aine Gannon, Siobhan Gallagher, Kathleen Hanmore and Gerry Kielty.
On Friday night an attentive audience of young players, male and female and parents from within the Club and from neighbouring clubs listened to presentations from twelve people who are pursuing careers in a wide variety of areas. The audience was given an honest and comprehensive account of what it takes to pursue different career paths, the different routes one can take to achieve ones career goals and an overview of the challenges and opportunities that each career can bring.
Club Chairperson. Kathleen Hanmore opened proceedings by welcoming everyone to the event and explained the thinking behind the evening. Siobhan Gallagher was MC on the night and introduced all of the speakers , giving a brief outline of their career path.
Many thanks to the twelve presenters on the evening, Oisin Regan Phase 4 Apprentice, Aaron O Connor Secondary School Teacher, Blaithin Dodd Primary School Teacher, Karl Kennedy Accounting and Finance, Robbie Molloy IT, Aoife O Connor Pharmacist, Michael Mc Gonigle Teagasc Advisory, Ailbhe Hanmore Solicitor, Ben Mc Loughlin Electrician, Marc O Connor Physiotheraphist, Niamh Sheerin Nurse and Rory O Connor member of An Garda Siochana. The Careers Committee is indebted to these young people who prepared so well for the event and gave their time very willingly
A huge thanks also to the club members and friends who helped with logistics , parking and catering on the night.
