Wexford Youths Womens National League Team Head Coach

  • Date Joined: 1st September 2016
I am a highly motivated and performance-driven UEFA A Licence football coach whose career incorporates extensive experience throughout Ireland and the USA. I have four years coaching experience in the Women’s National League of Ireland, winning the FAI Cup, Continental Tyres Shield, and three National League titles most recently guiding the Wexford Youths Women to the 2017 title as head coach.
I spent seven months working in the USA and I also have over five years’ experience organising and running a number of FAI community programs including school’s events and Football for all programs.These roles gave me the opportunity to work with both senior and youth sides in the design of appropriate coaching programs and the delivery of relevant training sessions tailored to the varying capabilities of each squad.
