Performance under pressure in sport

Performance under pressure in sport

We had a special mentors presentation on Thursday evening with a good attendance on performance under pressure. Martin Fairn, www.gazing.com, a professional rugby player and advisor to many top class athletes and sportsmen held a very engaging session with many insights into how to prepare mentally for events, how to recognise what we can control, what we might influence and what we cannot control. Special thanks to Martin and to the juvenile committee members, MIck Dowling, Paddy, Fergal and Liam Brennan and especially Jenny Keogh and Gina Lillis. who prepared the hall so nicely.

Tributes to Dave Billings

I see where Dave Billings has passed away. I was only chatting to him in Broomfield on Saturday evening he cycled out to watch the senior game, I was pucking on the same pitch and he stopped to chat and asked was I still playing away. He was even captured in one of the photos above the right shoulder of No 2. Always said hello, RIP. Hilary Murray-Hession

Dave Billings RIP - one of the great Dubs

Dublin GAA is shocked to hear the sudden passing of Dave Billings, St Vincents and Dublin stalwart of many years. As recently as last Saturday he was in Broomfield at our senior football game and we exchanged the usual pleasentaries - he had a dig at Pat and Dan (I stayed out of his range) as he cycled by. Anybody who ever kicked or pucked a ball in Dublin will have a fond memory of Dave Billings and we are much the poorer for his passing. The lads at St Sylvesters would like to pay our condolences to Dave's family and friends, he was a great character.
