FAI Disability Training 🇮🇪 âš½ï¸

Last Wednesday our class took part in FAI Disability Training led by two men, named Chris and Oisin. Chris is an amputee who unfortunately lost his leg in an accident a few years ago. Chris featured on popular Irish TV show, Operation Transformation. He also plays football internationally with fellow amputees. Chris and Oisin gave us an insight on the opportunities available for people with disabilities sports wise. I was stunned as I never heard tell of the different teams involved with the FAI regarding disability football. Oisin coaches these teams and is very passionate on spreading the word about the teams as most people, even with disabilities have never heard tell of them. Chris chatted to us about living with one leg, and how his life has actually improved since it was removed. It was an excellent day, also fair play to the two men involved, it’s a long trek from Dublin up to our part of the world..
