Well known Irish footballer and coach Niall Quinn facilitated an energetic soccer clinic and penalty shoot out last week with 15 young people (aged 10 to 12) who are all members of Foróige’s Tyrrelstown Youth Project!

He is great, like a big friendly giant,” said Jefrey Bangun (11) who took part. “I don’t even care what position I play in, I just want to play for Ireland,” said pal Nathan Forbes (11).

The event was organised by Dublin Bus as part of their Community Spirit initiative and took place on the new astro pitches at the National Aquatic Centre. Young people learned soccer skills from Niall and afterwards there was a penalty shootout. Curtis Forray was the overall winner and was presented with a €100 gift voucher.
