Extra Time; Nora Dooley
Extra Time is our ?just for fun? feature where we ask coaches some ice breaker questions to find out a little bit more about them.?

What is your favourite country you have visited??
The next one! ??It pains me to choose but two places high on my list of future potential homes are Colombia and South Africa (again).
What is the best gift you have ever been given?
I?m generally opposed to receiving material gifts but there was one that is a very cool material. My dad died when I was 15 and when his father died about five years later he left me a ring. It belonged to my great-grandmother whom I was named after, given to her by my great-grandfather whom my father was named after. On the ring is inscribed, ?To Nora, Love Edward, 1901? ? It felt like a posthumous gift from my dad.
