Following on from the successful start to the coaching programme in 2009 which created six qualified Irish coaches, the CAI is pleased to announce that a comprehensive programme of courses is planned for the 2010 season. The CAI would like to thank the various clubs for hosting these events which are part of the on-going development of the game in Ireland. Thanks also to Mr. Cliff Jones who will again be travelling over to us from the U.K. to run the first few events in our programme.
