€1.2m spent by Connacht Council on gaelic games coaching

respect

The Connacht Council spent just over €1.2m on coaching throughout the province in 2012, it was reported at the recent Connacht GAA Convention. This amounts to half of all the Council’s expenditure for the year. To put the figure in perspective, it’s about three times the amount spent by the Connacht Council on the staging of games throughout the year.

Of the €1,211,795 spent on “Coaching & Development”, €725,494 was spent on “Wages & Expenses Coaches” with €486,301 going on “Coaching Expenses”.

This represents an increase on last years’ spend of €189,824.

Here’s how Mayo’s schools benefited:

Elverys’ McHale Park was host to a great exhibition of the Respect and Super-Touch Initiatives today which acted as the curtain raiser for Mayo’s National Hurling League opener against their neighbours from Roscommon. This was a wonderful opportunity for these children to showcase their skills as well as promoting the Respect initiative.

Thanks are expressed to the teams and mentors for their co-operation on the day, and to the Transition Year students from Colaiste Mhuire in Tourmakeady for officiating in the game.
