Narbonne Partnership Expands


The Narbonne twinning project continues to bear fruit with the great news that u20 Men’s National Squad players Gareth Gilmartin and Peter McGlynn will be heading to the South of France for a ‘one week internship’. 

The trip will involve training with the professional outfit, gaining an insight into the life of a full time Volleyball player, in the French top flight. Both players will join Cathal Dwyer who is excelling with the team at the moment.

Gilmartin of Drumshanbo VS is the current captain of the Men’s u20 squad and said, “I’m delighted and really excited to head over to France and experience the culture and environment of an elite professional team. It’s an opportunity I’m grateful for and would like to thank Narbonne for giving me the chance, as well as my coaches and Volleyball Ireland that have helped at underage level here in Ireland that have helped me get to this stage.”

Volleyball Ireland would like to thank Mens Squad Head Coach Andrei Molnar, as well as Eric Marty and the team at Narbonne Volley for driving this opportunity.
