Killeigh NS are delighted to announce that GAA coach Adrian Clancy is our new GAA coach for the year ahead. Adrian is well known in coaching circles and he brings a wealth of experience to the role. Working with the children in the junior end of the school, Adrian is working on agility, balance, coordination as well as a variety of GAA skills.

Offaly coaching and games have worked with renowned underage coach Paudí Butler to design a programme that covers many elements of the school curriculum as well as developing the building blocks of fundamental movement skills that will enable the children to develop as the young sports stars of the future.

We are very grateful to Offaly Coaching and Games and to Na Fianna Hurling club and Clodiagh Gaels hurling club who are providing financial support for this initiative. Indeed we would like to acknowledge the incredible ongoing support we have received from both clubs. Adrian will work with the boys and girls of Junior infants up to 2nd class until Easter 2020.
