In March, Youth for Christ in Ireland brought the football cage, Nomad, to the town of Mullingar. Youth for Christ in Northern Ireland is their partner, loaning Youth for Christ in Ireland their cage. It was great to see how many young people were involved and a real blessing for a Youth for Christ nation that has just restarted.
Simon, one of the members of the new Nomad Ireland team, had this to say: “We toured around Ireland with the guys from the Nomad Northern Ireland team and we visited venues in Cork, Bandon, Kilkenny and Mullingar. The tour gave us a great introduction and overview of how the Nomad soccer cage works, and how to use it to run a program within schools and communities alike. The surprising thing was the weather – we’d pretty much a week of sunshine – who said the sun doesn’t shine in Ireland!”
