GAA in brief: Evans among 'expert' speakers

THE legendary Anfield boot room may not be too happy a place right now, but one of its former leaders is set to take part in an Irish coaching conference next month.

Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans will be among the speakers at the 'Sports Team Management and Administration Conference' which takes place in the Citywest Hotel on Saturday, February 20.

Another former Premier League soccer manager is expected to be included on the speaking line-up, which already includes the IRFU's Director of Fitness Liam Hennessy, Gary Keegan, Irish Institute of Sport, and top GAA managers like Brian Cody and Jack O'Connor. The course is being organised by Setanta College and Sporttracker. Details are available on sporttracker.ie.

First set of goalposts are erected at Trinity

History has been made at Trinity College with the installation of a set of GAA goalposts, allowing gaelic games to be played on College Park for the first time in the college's 418-year history.

The college has competed in third-level gaelic games since the 1950s, but has played its matches elsewhere and relied on the generosity of the Clanna Gael/ Fontenoy and Parnells GAA clubs in recent years for training facilities.

The men's footballers are currently preparing for the Trench cup under former Galway All-Ireland winner Brian Talty.
