At Renmore Gymnastics we are always happy to show interested people what we are doing and talk about why we are doing it. We were delighted yesterday to welcome Senator Fidelma Healy Eames and Galway City East independent candidate Noel Larkin to the training centre on Monday April 14th. Our visitors are shown above with Coach Samantha Marciano who heads up our recreational programme.
Neither Senator Healy Eames nor Mr. Larkin had previously seen the training centre, and were intrigued to discover our secret hideout where as many as 700 children attend gymnastics training each week. During their visit they asked about the background and growth of the club over the past number of years, and were treated to viewing some advanced gymnastics skills thanks to the girls’ and boys’ squads who were in for Easter-Break training.
Noel Larkin, Managing Director of Larkin Engineering, and a longtime resident of Welpark Grove, explained that one of his main political concerns is reducing the amount of money “wasted” at a local level. He cited overspend in the recent renovations of Eyre Square as an example of unnecessary overspending.
“We will be much better off”, Mr. Larkin said, “if we spend our money more prudently, always being careful that we are using it to improve the living conditions in our beautiful City”.
He said Renmore Gymnastics shows a good example of a small budget making a big impact to people’s lives, and a positive benefit to the local economy through job creation.
Politicians of any flavour are welcome to visit us and find out what’s going on. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for a tour. Hopefully we’ll be able to organise a time when the training centre is busy, because that’s when we’re at our best. And by the time you leave you’ll understand why we’re doing it: because gymnastics is good for children.
