ARTI Out In Force @ Croker!

This weekend spells the penultimate round of this year’s GAA All-Ireland football championship for both minor and senior ranks and Athletic Rehabilitation Therapy Ireland will be well represented in both games on Sunday at GAA headquarters.

Certified Athletic Rehabilitation Therapist, Cillian MacSuibhne will be perched on the Dublin bench in the curtain raiser in Croke Park as the Metropolitans take on Galway in the Minor football semi-final. Later in the afternoon, Mayo will have Liam Moffatt ARTC in their corner as they take on the might of Kerry in the battle for an All-Ireland final berth in the senior decider.

Both MacSuibhne and Moffatt are 2009 graduates of DCU’s Athletic Therapy & Training degree. The very best of luck to both this weekend and in their final preparations this week.
