This week has been an incredibly busy, but exciting week for me. It was my first week of classes at Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT), but I am going to save that for my next blog. Coming off of a big first game at Sligo over the weekend, it was good to receive some publicity for both the Limerick Celtics and Sport Changes Life. I am proud to represent both of these organizations and hope that I can do it to the best of my ability and make them proud. I am starting to feel like a member of the Limerick community. The amount of people that talked to me about or congratulated me on the game this weekend has really made me feel like an important part of the community. A family of the club also took Liz and I out to lunch to this very nice restaurant just outside of Limerick. Then we went and had tea at the Dromoland Castle and walked around the beautiful gardens surrounding the castle. It was so nice to have an Irish experience and see some of the beauty that Ireland has to offer. We’ve been so busy with playing, coaching, and getting settled that it was nice to have this afternoon away!
Coming up this weekend we have our first National League home game for the Limerick Celtics. We are trying to promote the event and make it a huge event! I have been trying to help the members of the club by doing all I can to try and promote the game and I have a great feeling about the weekend. We had to move our game to a bigger gym in order to fit more people. I am really looking forward for the community to all come together for the game. It will be awesome to see a lot of the kids that play for the club come out and support the National League squad. Hopefully we won’t let them down and we can put on a good performance! Make sure to check out the results!
