I would like to thank the former Monaghan Senior Football team Manager Eamon McEneaney and PJ McKenna for allowing me to implement my ideas, forming the strength & conditioning and diet & nutrition template in 1999, which was adopted by the All-Ireland winning Armagh Senior Football Team and is still currently in use in Monaghan, Armagh, Louth, Donegal.
The Ulster u21s Championship title was our major success and the all Ireland B final with the seniors.
To Dr. Eugene Young and Declan Gamble for the input into the fitness test norms for development squads, also to Eugene for all the help, advice and areas in which he allowed me to work un-supervised. Also, to Tony Scullion for enthusiasm!!
