Welcoming Connor Hayes Back to Salmo!

Welcoming Connor Hayes Back to Salmo!

(27 Nov 2020)

We were delighted to welcome Connor Hayes back to the club recently.

Connor is a long-standing member of the Salmo family, having started with our U6s.

In February 2019 Connor was playing with our U15s in a game against Naas RFC when he suffered a concussion. Following a routine scan in hospital for the concussion, a brain tumour was discovered.

Connor had to have surgery immediately to remove the tumour and has subsequently been through radiotherapy, chemotherapy and, most recently, a stint in the new National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dun Laoghaire. It was a very tough period for Connor but his resilience and positive attitude stood to him enormously.

Connor returned to the club last month and is currently helping to coach the U13 boys team, taking part in a programme the club have initiated this year for TY students where they undergo an official Leinster coaching course along with very valuable hands-on coaching experience working with a number of our squads.

Throughout his treatment, the biggest thing Connor missed was playing sport and he is absolutely delighted to be back on the rugby pitch at DLSP and the Salmo family is delighted to have him back in the club.

Connor is pictured playing the game he loves and (on the left, in Leinster blue) coaching the U13s squad in November.
