He has branched out into training and worked with the Social Welfare (contact name Donal Conlon 091-564893), Galway Rural Development (contact name Mary Claire Brennan 091-844335), Galway City Partnership (contact name Una Monaghan 091-566617) and Cumas Connemara Teo (contact name Joe 091-574353).

In addition he has set up a training program for Galway Rural Development who administers funding under the leader two program. He instructed all grant recipients on the procedure for drawing down their leader grant. This involved creating a training manual and meeting the grant recipients in groups to discuss their problems. As a result of this, he obtained a contract auditing the actual grant applications and approving them for payment. During this period he worked very closely with Galway Rural Development’s Chief Administrator Mary Claire Brennan. This manual is now an integral part of their system.
