Facilities for County Teams
This requires an immediate increase in the number of full time coaches involved in underage and schools development that will bring Cork up to par with the number of coaches in other counties, and also sees the need for the appointment of key development personnel to support Cork underage structures. Cairde Chorcaí has worked with the Cork County Board to establish a pilot approach with one full time coach now employed and part funded by Cairde Chorcaí. Approval has been granted by Croke Park and Munster Council to co-fund eight additional full-time coaching staff in Cork by early 2020. This will more than double the current coaching staff and allow far greater contact at ground level. Cairde Chorcaí will assist Cork County Board in the provision of Cork’s contribution to the cost of these coaches.
