The WSP Club Development Seminar Series 2015 began on Monday night - fifty seven people from twenty one clubs representing thirteen different sports attended a Concussion Awareness Seminar delivered by Shane Mooney on behalf of Munster Rugby and the IRFU.

Damon Ulrich, Community Rugby Manager, Munster Rugby said ‘Munster Rugby are delighted to co-host the first seminar in the WSP Club Development Seminar Series. Strong links have been forged recently between WSP and Munster Rugby, It is great that all sports can benefit from the expertise of other NGB's. We are pleased with the excellent feedback from representatives of all sports who attended the Concussion Awareness Seminar’.

Derek Lyons from Dungarvan GAA said ‘a very informative evening presented in a way that was easy to follow and understand’. Martina Coonan from Dungarvan Rugby Club said ‘absolutely fantastic knowledge on concussion and how to recognise the symptoms’.
