Cathal Brady, past student & founder of Dunboyne Sports Clinic visits our degree students
Cathal sets up his own Clinical Practice and becomes a Lecturer
Cathal progressed from the Diploma in Sports Therapy (2007) to the degree (2012) and subsequently founded Dunboyne Sports Inquiry Clinic.
Cathal combined his experience as a former league of Ireland soccer player with a Diploma in Sports Therapy (2007) and a Degree in Sports Therapy (2012) to start his own business. He now spends his day providing therapy sessions to individual clients and client teams. Cathal manages a very impressive client base working with UCD and Maynooth University teams as well as providing sports rehabilitation to GAA and Rugby teams.
I think cathal was a blended learning student but I don’t have my notes here – so I will have to revisit this section.
Today, Cathal has a wealth of hands on sports experience. Due to his hard work and continued commitment to the practice, the clinic has expanded over the last seven years and he now employs sports therapists and physiotherapists to work in his practice alongside with his team.
He currently lectures at PI – to revisit
Some wise words from Cathal, “if you enjoy your job you will never work a day in your life”.
Is this a pathway to clinical practice for you? Cathal’s story shows that studying sports therapy at Portobello Institute is a route to starting your own sports business. If you would like to discuss your career options with a course advisor, please call 01 892 0000 or come to one of our open days to meet with the lecturers from the sports department.
