“History is speckled with individuals who have made a difference. Ciaran Duffy is passionate about his vision of more and better opportunities for disadvantaged young girls to become active. Good people make a huge difference and good people with good ideas go far. I support Ciaran in his project and look forward to seeing his plans become reality”.

Liam Moggan – Coach Education Development Officer, Coaching Ireland.

My little girl goes to Fun Direction East Wall and I can’t recommend Ciaran and his team highly enough. The girls in the class absolutely love the activities and have great fun, and don’t realise all the skills they are learning at the same time. Ciaran and the other coaches are hugely encouraging and the girls love going.


Thanks to Ciaran’s extreme kindness, patience and diplomacy our 8 year old daughter managed to waive her fear of being on a pitch.  She would not miss a class as she is enjoying it so much! Watching her playing now with her team mates is a real pleasure – she has showed great improvement kicking the ball and most importantly being a team player.  
But among all the sports introduced by Ciaran karate remains her favourite!


My daughter loves learning the variety of sports, but in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment


I’m delighted to support the project which encourages physical activity for young girls and proud that St Mary’s Youth Club in East Wall could be the initial venue
