The Irish National Volleyball team are holding their November trainings in Mayo for the first time this weekend. The Volleyball ladies side normally train in the National Indoor arena in Dublin but Ireland coach Mark Delahunty decided to move the training around the country more to help expose the sport better.
Therefore this weekend the Ireland ladies will train in the Sports hall of St. Louis Community School KIltimagh which is also the home venue of the Mayo Volleyball Club. St. Louis has excellent volleyball facilities and one of few venues in Mayo that has international volleyball regulation standard courts. The team along with their coaches will stay in the Cill Aodain Hotel Kiltimagh.
Mikal O'Boyle of Mayo Volleyball Club is part of the Irish team and has recently been appointed vice captain.
The team will be training from 11:30am to 4pm this Saturday 6th of November and 9-4pm Sunday,
