    Does anyone have any recommendations from the available coaches at Spawell?

    Coaches are Brendan McDaid, John Dignam, David Keating, Gary Murphy, Tim Rice and Colm Moriaty.

    I got a lesson last year from a coach there, wont mention his name here, but was not at all impressed with him. Cheers

    Colm is a good lad who has played on one of the feeder tours, I've played with him but never had a lesson.

    Sergio Coyle is there as well had my first lesson with him a few weeks back now. highly recommend him, has all the latest tech and is more focused on building a swing that lasts than quick fixes in my view.

    Had a few lessons with Brendan. Highly recommended. Always had a drill for the part of my swing that I was struggling with and always worked at a pace where I would progress or take a step back if too complex.

    Have had a few lessons with Brendan McDaid, I felt they were quite good.

    He runs a group drop in session on Wednesdays at 8PM for like ~17 euro if you are interested to give him a try.

    Agree on Brendan McDaid. I had a few odd lessons over the years and he gave me a few techniques that have stuck with me and helped.

    Have heard good things about Sergio Coyle, haven't had a lesson from him but he looks to have all the tech for lessons.

    Sergio Coyle a half brother surely of Georgie Burgess?

    Can stand behind the Sergio Coyle reccomendations. Dropped 2 shots since working with him (3 lessons, so far). First thing he said is need a swing that works under pressure, and it has done just that. Has all the latest technology too. All personal opinion of course, make of it what you will.
