Roscommon GAA recently announced that they have appointed Oliver Lennon as their new Games Promotion Officer (GPO).
The appointment was funded by Seán Mulryan and Lennon will join the Roscommon Coaching and Games Development team of Peter Carney and Padraic Mitchell in football and Proinsias Killion in hurling.
Ollie Lennon, who will cover south Roscommon, was delighted to accept the role and outlined the job ahead: “It’s probably a role that I’ve always been looking out for the last number of years. I’ve been coaching in primary schools in Roscommon and Cúl Camps over the last number of years. Roscommon GAA would be a great passion of mine; I’m involved with the senior team on the analysis side of it as well. The biggest challenges are making children aware of Gaelic games and their clubs and making clubs aware of young players in schools.”
Seamus Sweeney Roscommon GAA County Chairman said of the appointment: “It’s great for Roscommon Coaching and Games Development to be able to secure funding to engage another GPO to assists clubs, schools and our own development squads in the development of our players.
“I want to recognise the fantastic contribution that Sean Mulryan has made by agreeing to assist in funding this position. It’s just another example of the commitment he has to underage development and the development and promotion of Gaelic games in Co. Roscommon. We have had a long association with Seán and this investment in the development of youth in Roscommon will I hope bear fruit for us and Seán in the not too distant future.”
