I’m delighted to confirm that there will be an official book launch held in Navan library on June 16th at 7pm. Jim Conroy and Danny Crowley are the guests of honor as we look to recognize their great contribution to Irish football over the years at Colaiste Ide through the Association Football course.
From the get go this book has been a personal project of mine to highlight the unbelievable work by Jim Conroy and Danny Crowley at Colaiste Ide through the years and I have managed to, with the help of a lot of good friends and family, to organize an event that for probably the first time gives these coaches the acknowledgment they deserve. I will be unable to attend as work in Boston calls but I have been in touch with some of the many people that have crossed paths with both men and I am looking forward to a great event.
With the help of who else but my mother, we hope to have a reunion of sorts for a lot of people and through the book recognize Jim and Danny for their contribution to coaching over the years and changing peoples lives. The truth is that without the Association Football course there wouldn’t have been an opportunity for many young Irish women and men to come to the USA and make something out of themselves. The fact that Jim and Danny made sure to run the program with the highest integrity is what sets them apart.
It is an open invitation so anyone can go to the event and the more the merrier of course. We will have some people speak and there will also be tea and snacks but I wouldn’t come hungry! If you would like to find out more information about the event contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
