Ellen-Keane-184x140The programme has allowed me to make adjustments to my timetable without sacrificing the quality of my training and college education. The funding has also been a major impact to me allowing me to be able to pay for college and use other funds to pay for my training and competition. I started TU Dublin as a Paralympic athlete but will leave as a Paralympic Medallist and this would not have been possible without the support I have received. - Ellen Keane - Irish Paralympic Bronze Medallist, 2016 Rio Paralympics

brian-howard-184x140v1The programme has provided me with an opportunity to achieve both my sporting and academic goals. Flexibility shown by the University in terms of facilitating my training and extra academic supports have enabled me to concentrate on my studies while at the same time playing College football including Sigerson Cup and Inter-County football to the highest level. Being supported as an elite GAA player at the University has also allowed me to be introduced to and get to know other talented athletes across a range of sporting disciplines. - Brian Howard – Member of 5 ‘in-a-row’ winning Dublin Senior Panel
