Recent Tours

Yale University Women's Basketball Team

After last years successful tour hosting Saint Joseph’s University in Ireland I was contacted by Chris Gobrecht, Head Coach of Yale’s Women’s Basketball Team regarding bringing her team to Ireland on a pre-season tour. Over the space of 7 months I worked closely with Chris and together we created an eight day tour itinerary to suit her exact requirements. In August the team arrived and I thoroughly enjoyed hosting their tour and I’m delighted to report it was truly outstanding for all involved. . Read up on my resport.

Saint Joseph's University Women's Basketball Team

In August 2012 we welcomed Saint Joseph's University Women's Basketball Team to Ireland for a 10 day tour. The tour took "The Hawks" to both Northern and Southern Ireland during which they would have 5 competitive games against local opposition whilst also visiting some of Irelands most famous sites e.g. The Giant's Causeway, Cliff's of Moher and Guinness Factory to name a few. Read up on the whole experience here.

Sport Changes Life Foundation

We are a founding partner of the Sport Changes Life Foundation which is a not for profit foundation that helps young people who are disadvantaged and at risk throughout Ireland by encouraging and inspiring them through the medium of sport. We do this by working with students from the United States via our Victory Scholarship Program, an international educational opportunity for both student-athletes and students with an interest in the management of sport.

We are continually developing relationships with American Colleges and High Schools and as part of these relationships Link2Ireland & the Sport Changes Life Foundation can host College sports teams for their overseas tours to Ireland.
