Speaking about his appointment, O’Connor said: “I’m delighted to be joining the team at Moyvalley and I’m excited to take on this role. The practice facilities are some of the best around and with a growing membership there’s huge potential for the club and resort.”
Alan Kelly, Golf Operations Manager welcomed him to the resort, saying: “We are excited to bring Daniel to Moyvalley and we look forward to working with him to expand our services and offerings to members and visitors alike.”
Daniel has represented Connacht at boys interprovincial level and is a medal winner in the All-Ireland AIG Senior Cup with Athlone.
