St. Patrick’s Day 2017

March 17th, 2017 marked the 2nd annual Wolfhounds St. Patrick’s Day celebration (and annually GAA season kick-off party) at Foothills Brewing Tasting Room. We would like to thank all the wonderful and accommodating staff at the Tasting Room for hosting once again, give a shout out to Góilín for providing traditional Irish music, and a heart felt thanks to all of our supporters who came to celebrate with us.

Kicking off the week right


Our practice today included some good ol’ calisthenics, fun scrimmaging, and ended with Kate’s warm-down yoga session (free and open to the public). Excitement is building for our season kick-off this Friday at Foothills Tasting Room. Come meet the team, learn about how we support Irish sports and culture in the triad, talk yoga with Kate, listen to traditional Irish music, and more. It promises to be a good “bit of craic” with those who know a wee bit more about how to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day 2017

Come celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Foothills Brewing with the Winston-Salem Wolfhounds, your local Gaelic Football club.
There will be a traditional Irish band called Gòilín, some individual Irish musicians (including a guitarist and a bodhrán player), some Irish dancing (who knows ;D), a sample of Irish food, some Irish spot prizes and most importantly some Irish people…so you know this collectively means a really fun time or some good craic as we would say back home 🇮🇪.
Come celebrate the patron saint of Ireland and learn about the fantastic work we are doing to promote Gaelic sports and Irish culture in the Triad

The Wolfhounds are making Yoga a big part of the weekly training session this year and Kate Renganeschi has kindly offered to teach our players some techniques.

Kate is a certified RYT-500 yoga instructor. She received her training in both Costa Rica and Thailand. She mostly teaches vinyasa-based classes that focus on creating balance between strength and flexibility. She also enjoys teaching yin and restorative yoga, which focus on calming the mind and body. Kate teaches at Paz Studios (Trade Street, Downtown Winston), the William G. White Jr. YMCA, and Wake Forest University. She is also an elementary school teacher, is certified to teach children’s yoga and often teaches classes to both students and teachers in local schools.
