A Big Kilmacud Crokes Welcome to Our New Club Coach Maria Bergin

 As most members will probably recall, Paraic McDonald left his club coaching role earlier this year after giving great service in this over the previous 20 years.  In that context, Niall Corcoran has taken on an expanded role in driving the definition and execution of the coaching strategy for the club. We are excited to announce that Niall will now be joined by Maria Bergin who comes to us from her role as a GPO in Castleknock.  Maria is originally from Kildare but is now living in Dunboyne. She started playing Camogie and football for Naas GAA at the age of 5 and her love for the GAA has grown ever since. She is a  qualified referee also. She would say that her belief is that all children  no matter what their ability should be given the opportunity to learn and participate in our native games in a safe and fun environment. She feels a child centred approach is the best way for the children to grow both on and off the field and also believes in order for this to happen coach education is of paramount importance. We are delighted to welcome Maria to the role and wish her every success in the future.
