Peter Linehan, Spa Ns, Head Coach (Mixed Team Defending Champions)

“We are thrilled to be back to the National finals again this year especially after a wonderful tournament and success in the mixed competition last year. Really looking forward to meeting and competing with schools from all over the country. National Finals Day is always a super day out, so well organised with lots of excitement and really good volleyball. Best of luck to all teams competing today. Hope you all have a really great day!”


Noreen O’Dea, Cloverfield NS, Head Coach

“Cloverfield NS is buzzing with excitement and anticipation as our Team continue preparations for the National Finals at UL on March 2nd. We have played 4V4 Volleyball and previously Spikeball at Cloverfield for over 15 years and enjoy it as a game which includes all team players equally and is suitable for small schools like ours! Thanks for the opportunity Volleyball Ireland!”
