Get Autumn 2021 off to an Olympic Start by winning the chance to train with some of Ireland’s Top Athletes!

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, we are 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.

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 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 was recently named man of the match for his All Ireland win against Cork; and Dublin County footballer, Con O’Callaghan.

The competition is open to both male and female athletes aged 12 to 18 years from schools and clubs across Ireland.

To be in with a chance to win this fabulous prize, all you must do is tell us -in no more than 100 words - why your club/school deserves 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.

You can email your entry to milk2021@ndc.ie or send by post to NDC Training Day Competition, The Studio, 55c Maple Avenue, Stillorgan, Dublin A94 HY83 to arrive no later than 5pm on Friday 5th November 2021.
