One person I would like to take the time to thank immensely is Tony Hehir. Tony and his wife Michelle both run the club team, Limerick Celtics, that both Megan and I are playing for and will be our respective coaches as well. Coming over to another country without any idea of what to expect, they have made the transition as smooth as possible. Not only showing us how to get around and where everything is in the city of Limerick, but also being a support system for us. Tony has made sure that we have got rides to all of our practices and coaching sessions, even if that meant picking us up himself. He has taken us out to eat on multiple occasions, got us set up with a tour around our campus, and helped us gain access to a gym whenever we wanted to shoot around or lift.
Recently, Tony and Michelle were nice enough to bring us bikes, in order to make the traveling around town easier. The generosity has been second to none, treating us as if we were family. Not to mention they have done all this, while still working everyday as well as running a very popular club team in the community with over hundreds of kids and adults involved. It is safe to say that they we owe them a big THANK YOU! They should receive majority of the credit for preparing us for what is to come in the upcoming months!
With much appreciation!
