It’s a joint initiative between Bank of Ireland and Athletics Ireland – they’ve launched a nationwide search  to identify and foster talented athletics students

The programme will culminate in an event with advice and tips from Ireland’s top sports psychologists, nutritionists and athletes including former European Indoor Championship gold medalist David Gillick.
