The Institute is well represented at the games with nine athletes en route to Naples, making Institute of Technology Carlow one of the biggest contributors to the travelling Irish delegation. In addition to the women’s football representatives, scholarship students Alan O’Sullivan, Dean Kelly and Anthony Mc Alavey will represent the Men’s Soccer team with Luke Hardy (Dept Sport Media and Marketing) also traveling as team coach.

We wish everyone the very best of luck in their competitions over the next twelve days. #COYBIG #COYGIG
