Bray People - - Bray Sport -

OVER THE last six weeks the 4th class of Scoil Nio­clais Naofa, Dunlavin Na­tional School have at­tended the Bren­dan McDaid Golf Academy in once a week for an hours coach­ing in golf to get a real in­tro­duc­tion to the game of golf and de­velop their skills in the game.

Mr Tommy Bren­nan, Prin­ci­pal at Dunlavin Na­tional School said: ‘It has been a great way to in­tro­duce the chil­dren to the game of golf and made a lo­cal ac­tiv­ity more ac­ces­si­ble for most chil­dren who would not nor­mally get such an op­por­tu­nity. The Bren­dan McDaid Golf Academy has given the chil­dren an­other skill and taster for the game whilst giv­ing the chil­dren a great hour of fun each week.!’

The 4th class teacher Mr. Daragh Flynn said the feed­back from the par­ents has been ex­cel­lent and they are de­lighted that their chil­dren have been given a new skill and en­joy­ing their in­tro­duc­tion to the game of golf. The chil­dren have re­ally en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence and many will fol­low up on fur- ther train­ing avail­able at the Academy.

Bren­dan McDaid Golf Academy in Rath­sal­lagh has trained some of the top golfers in Ir­ish golf to­day in­clud­ing Peter Lawrie, Colm Mo­ri­arty, Stephen Brown, Tara De­laney (Ir­ish Ladies Close Cham­pion 2007) and Kate Gal­lagher (Ir­ish Girls Cham­pion 2007).

Through the Academy’s var­i­ous ju­nior camps and Young Mas­ters Golf run through­out the year they are hop­ing to pro­duce some of the ris­ing golf stars of the fu­ture!

Bren­dan hopes to en­cour­age more schools to at­tend classes at the Golf Academy to in­tro­duce youngsters to the game.
