.@MayoGAA Martin Fogarty Hurling Coaching Workshop – Full details:

Coaches / Officers,

Enclosed find details of the upcoming Mayo GAA Martin Fogarty Hurling Coaching Workshop which will take place on Tuesday 12th December from 7.30pm until 9.00pm in The Breaffy Indoor Sports Arena. The Mayo U16 Hurling Development Panel will be coached during the Workshop on the night, as National Coaching Director Martin Fogarty delivers his Workshop on ‘Games Based Approach to Hurling Coaching’.

All coaches from Mayo GAA hurling/camogie from clubs/schools are invited to attend, and pick up coaching hints which they can use within their own sessions. These workshops have proven most valuable in the past, as they have created a direct link to underage hurling coaching practices in the more traditional hurling counties.

I would be grateful if you can promote this initiative within your club. With Feile na nGael being hosted in Connacht in 2018, this is an ideal opportunity for your Feile coaching panel to receive invaluable coaching tips for the year ahead. The Breaffy Arena has proven very popular as a venue for these workshops in the past. This is a free event and younger players are also invited to come along and watch proceedings. Please spread the word around your club/school.

For more information contact Mayo GAA Games Promotion Officer Adrian Hession on 087-2450566.

Kind Regards.

Adrian Hession

The Breaffy Sports Arena was the venue for the inaugural Eugene O’Shea Memorial Hurling Tournament for hurling school in the Castlebar Mitchels Hurling catchment area. Four schools took part on the day with over sixty boys taking part in the unique indoor hurling event.

Eugene O’Shea Memorial Cup

No history of Castlebar Mitchel’s Hurling Club can be written without paying a small, deserved tribute to Eugene O’Shea RIP. Eugene was instrumental in reactivating hurling in Castlebar in 1981. Eugene O’Shea was chairman of the Hurling Club from 1981 to 1987 when his untimely death took place. Eugene’s sons, Niall, Paul & Aidan all played hurling for the club and county. During Eugene’s term as chairman of the Mayo GAA Hurling Board, the Mayo senior hurling team were promoted up to Division 2 and played with distinction against Tipperary, Laois, Antrim, Dublin and Meath. It was the highest ever status of hurling in Mayo in the National Hurling League. Eugene was a great leader and motivator. He had a very deep interest in all that was Irish but especially hurling. Eugene brought a sense of direction to Mayo hurling. In a remarkable way, his quiet and gentle manner had touched the hearts and minds of all of us who had come to know him so well. He was a man of great principle and character. In every way he was a perfect gentleman. Ar dheis De ar a anam.

Today’s event is in memory of Andy Walsh RIP of Curelaim, Turlough, Castlebar. Andy’s
early involvement in the GAA stems back to the Ballyvary GAA Club who played football
in East Mayo back in the 1960’s. Due to emigration the Ballyvary GAA Club disbanded in
1972. A lack of playing facilities in the Ballyvary area encouraged Andy and a team of
local volunteers to fundraise and develop the Ballyvary Community Pitch throughout the
early 2000’s. In 2005 the Ballyvary Hurling Club was established and Andy Walsh was its
first ever chairman. He also continued in his role as groundsman of the Ballyvary
Community Pitch and worked diligently to make the pitch one of the best GAA surfaces
in the county. Andy took great pride when the Mayo Senior Footballs and Senior Hurlers
both used the Ballyvary Community Pitch to train their teams in 2008. After an illness
Andy Walsh passed away in 2011, but his GAA legacy lives on through the Ballyvary
Community Pitch and the Ballyvary Hurling Club.
