With just 70 days and counting to the opening game in the World Cup, children in Dublin’s inner city will get some expert coaching in the ‘beautiful game’ from Dublin City Council and Samba Soccer.

The launch of Dublin City Council’s Summer Projects in association with Samba Soccer takes place at 4pm on Friday 4th April at Sherriff Street Recreational Centre, Dublin 1.

100 children at the launch will get expert tips from Brazilian coaches including Eduardo Ribas and UEFA coach John O’Reilly.

For six weeks each summer Dublin City Council’s Recreation Centres run a very successful Summer Camp in 13 areas of the city. This year will see the theme of “Play” as part of the summer programmes.

Dublin’s Lord Mayor Oisín Quinn, who will launch the Programme, says “Launching Dublin City Council’s Summer Projects in conjunction with Samba Soccer is a great idea. Bringing Samba Soccer to inner city children in Dublin ensures top quality coaching and an integrated approach to this great initiative”.

Also attending is His Excellency Mr Afonso José Sena Cardoso Ambassador of Brazil to Ireland and Samba Soccer Director Ronnie Carroll.
