Host Town: Naas Host to the New Zealand Team

Newsletter Spring 2003

New Zealand Delegation

John F. Dunne and his sub-committee are looking after the requirements of the visiting team for training purposes. John comments that Naas is very fortunate that it has so many facilities for training. The committee would at this stage like to thank the following managements and staff for making their facilities available for the training requirements for our visitors: The Monread Sports and Leisure Centre; Killashee Leisure Centre; Naas Sports Centre/Athletic Club; Acorn Equestrian Centre, Maynooth; Red Lane Golf Centre; The Ten Pin Bowling, Carlow. Without whose help and assistance the athletes would not have an opportunity for training in the area.
