Team Ireland will be represented at the Winter European Youth Olympic Festival 2015 by four alpine skiers: Enda Bolger, Ben Anselmi, Gary Skinner and Tess Arbez. This year the festival is taking place in Vorarlberg/Liechtenstein from 25-31 January.

Enda and Ben are current members of the Ski Club of Ireland and Gary is also a past member of the club race squad. All 3 racers have well represented the club and country at national and international level and now train in Austria and Italy. We are delighted to see these young racers go out to race for their country in this prestigious event.

Team Ireland will be led by Chef de Mission Anne O’Connor,Team Coach Alain Untergasmair and Team Physiotherapist Eimear O’Leary.

” The Winter Youth Festivals give our athletes the opportunity to perform in a multi – nation event with other high calibre athletes across many disciplines. We have a great support team in place to assist our young athletes to perform to their potential”
