“Denis invested countless hours to Westmeath Senior & U21 Hurling in his role as Performance Psychology Coach for the past 3 years. I am delighted to have had the opportunity to work closely and gain great knowledge from him during my 2 years involved. Denis played a pivitol role in the historical U21 win over Kilkenny last year and this year also beating Laois for the first time ever in Championship along with many other victories. Denis was working with the senior hurlers when they tasted league success in 2016 not forgetting this years great performance against Tipperary just to mention a few”

" I recently worked with Denis to improve the positive mind-set and performance of our Inter-county Minor Team. I found his sessions to be engaging and informative and he worked very well with the panel both collectively and as individuals. His time with the panel was always well thought out, planned and interesting. He encouraged, entertained and educated and was a positive element in the year’s performances.
