Top coaching role at Davis is available

THERE'S a big job going at Thomas Davis.

The Kiltipper committee are looking for a Club Coach.

The Tallaght club now field almost fifty teams. They are 127 years in existence.

They have enjoyed some wonderful days. And they have produced some iconic names.

The successful candidate would be working with the schools, developing the Thomas Davis Academy, planning and co-ordinating the club's Summer and Easter Camps.

Other responsibilities would involve implementing coaching and skill development programmes, and endeavouring to increase participation levels through recruitment, and improving player's standards across all codes.

It's a wonderful opportunity to work with one of Dublin's most respected clubs. But you'll have to be sharp because the deadline closes at midnight today. Send a CV and covering letter to secretary.thomasdavis.dublin@gaa.ie.

Dublin double deckers

THE Dublin hurlers are heading to Portlaoise on Saturday. And the county's camogie team too.

The hurlers would love to re-create the scene of 2013 when they beat Kilkenny in the Leinster Championship for the first time since 1942.

It was one of Anthony Daly's proudest days.

Dublin almost had Galway beaten the first day, but fell in the replay.

They will now meet Laois. The camogie team play Tipperary in the All-Ireland Senior Championship.

The Dublin hurlers and camogie side would appreciate all the support they can get. And, as ever, the FODH Express will be riding into town.

The buses will leave Connolly Station (2.45pm) and Rathcoole Village (3.15pm).

The fare is 10 Euro for members of the Friends of Dublin Hurling and 15 Euro for non-members. Juveniles are a fiver.

It's a lovely way to travel to and from a game. It all goes with the precision of a Swiss watch.

To book a seat, text your name and pick-up point to 087-2331983 before Thursday (6.pm).
