Hi, you should definitely come visit your neighbouring derby team in Waterford! Or maybe you already have? Your username looks familiar so I think I know who you are, and you did some of our freshmeat course? Its a long way to travel on a regular basis, especially if you're relying on buses! If you do get a few interested folks in wexford, we'd be happy to help ye get started in whatever way we can :-)

If you miss roller derby and want a team in your area, why not make it happen? That's how Tipperary Roller Girls started, by one girl feeling the same as you. Start small, find one of two people, get a small community hall to practice in for now or anywhere that you can and start generating some interest. Use social media, hand out business cards, flyers. That's how I found out about our team, by a business card on a night out. Find even one other person and work as a team. It's hard work but if you want it bad enough, it's achievable. Other teams will be supportive, we have found they are great. We have no experienced trainer, we have done it all ourselves and it can be done! With some confidence and sheer determination and drive, you can do it! Go for it!

Offtopic, but if you ever want a hand with coaching, I'm happy to come down for a session - I'm a skater/coach with Dublin (:
