House of Waterford Crystal hosts FAI Press Conference & VIP tour for Giovanni Trapattoni
The House of Waterford Crystal hosted an FAI press conference on Friday February 10th, where Ireland Manager Giovanni Trapattoni announced his 24-man squad for the February 29th home friendly against the Czech Republic as he steps up preparations for Euro 2012 in Poland in June.
During his visit to The House of Waterford Crystal, Trapattoni was taken on a VIP tour of the manufacturing facility, where the Ireland manager was shown up close the craft of blowing and even took the opportunity to blow a piece of crystal himself.
Later on the tour, Trapattoni donned a white coat and tried his hand at wedge cutting. ‘It is heavy’, he remarked after cutting the base of the large vase he was later presented with.
David McCoy, Commercial Director of The House of Waterford Crystal, presented Trapattoni with the stunning Waterford Crystal vase following the press conference, to commemorate his visit to Waterford.
