Jamie Dwyer enjoys busy day at Grange Road

World player of the year Jamie Dwyer was on hand to show off some of the skills that made him a World and Olympic champion and impart some of his knowledge to some of Ireland's future stars at Grange Road last weekend.

The diminutive Australian conducted a couple of coaching clinics which ran in tandem with the Irish Hockey League's finals weekend. In between times, he also was on hand to sign balls, sticks and jersies for the assembled players and posed for photos with members of the public - notably Railway mascot Flora the Frog who presented him with their supporter's "R U a player?" t-shirt.

Amid his busy schedule, Dwyer took time out to have a few words with The Hook about how he enjoyed his brief first visit to the capital, how he was savouring the atmosphere at the Irish Hockey League and what is upcoming plans are.
