Deaf players wanted for Ireland football team

Don’t forget this Sunday’s football trial with the Ireland Men’s football team (3rd December 2017).

The session will be at the Oscar Traynor Coaching & Development Centre, Coolock, Dublin 5.

Arrive at 12noon.

Training will start at 1pm and finish at 3pm. The session will be overseen by highly qualified football coaches.

If you are interested, get in touch with me. You can message me in private if you have any queries.

Stuart Hayden, the Ireland manager and I want to look at every possible deaf footballer. You will need to be born in Ireland (Northern Ireland/Republic of Ireland) or in receipt of an Irish passport and have a hearing loss, at least 55 decibels (bilateral – both ears) to be eligible to play for Ireland.

We welcome players from all backgrounds including those who do not communicate in Sign Language.
