Would you like to train with some of Ireland’s top athletes this Autumn? As part of the EU-funded Everything Starts with Milk Campaign, the National Dairy Council is offering four lucky schools or sports clubs the chance to train with Olympic gold medallist Kellie Harrington and three of Ireland’s top GAA Stars – Cian Lynch, Grace Walsh and Con O’Callaghan.
Kellie said, “I was fortunate to have the opportunity to be involved in the NDC’s training day last year which was such a rewarding experience, so I am delighted to have been named as an official ambassador for the third year of the campaign! Eating well is essential for boxing like every sport and adapting your nutritional intake to your sport is a necessity, so it was great to have the opportunity once again to advise our young sports people on why consuming milk is such a key component in fuelling your body correctly for your sport.”
The training days with the three GAA Players will take place at three different venues in November with one player at each venue, so if your school or club wants to train with the best GAA talent, now is your chance. All Stars camogie player of the year nominee, Grace Walsh plays for Kilkenny as well as working full time as a nurse in Dublin; Limerick Hurler Cian Lynch who was recently named man of the match over his All Ireland win against Cork; and Dublin County footballer Con O’Callaghan.
Jeanne Spillane, Marketing Manager at the National Dairy Council said, “As we all experienced the excitement and anticipation for Kellie at the recent Tokyo 2020 Olympics, it is a great time to celebrate our young Irish athletes. We are delighted to offer this opportunity for an ambitious team or club to train with these inspirational athletes. Dairy milk is a great choice post-exercise. As well as being an affordable, natural, versatile and widely available choice after exercise, milk also provides a range of vitamins and minerals supporting you both on and off the pitch.”
The competition is open to both male and female athletes aged 12 to 18 years from schools and clubs across Ireland.
To enter the competition simply tell us in 100 words why you deserve to win this once in a lifetime chance. If you are feeling creative, you can also send a short, creative video explaining why you and your team would love the opportunity to train with these elite Irish athletes.
All entries should be sent to the National Dairy Council at by 5pm on Friday 5th November 2021. For terms and conditions and details on how to enter please visit www.milk2021.ie
