Welcome Message From The President
I am hugely proud and privileged to have been elected President of this great club for the season 2013-2014. I welcome all our visiting guests, their teams, our members and friends to Templeville Road. The club last season under Michael Fanagan achieved high success winning 9 Leinster trophies including the Leinster Senior League Cup. I thank all the coaches, managers and players for their huge commitment. I know it just doesn’t happen, you make it happen.
To club Captain Darragh Fanning, his coaches James, Peter, Jonathan and Management under Paudge and Garry I wish you every success for the season, enjoy it. Let’s get off to a good start in the all Ireland League and let’s see where it takes us. To Kevin Conboy, Director of Rugby and his team I thank you most sincerely for the hard work put in behind the scenes, it makes all the difference.
I wish all our elected captains, coaches and managers together with their teams an enjoyable and exciting season. I would, in particular, like to mention the Minis under Karl Jennings and the Youths under Michael O’Flaherty and Michael Coyle, you and your teams continue to play a huge role in the club’s future. I look forward to meeting the many parents and families of these sections and including them in the shape and vision of our club. Continued success to the Women’s section, 2 teams established and growing, success achieved already at the Gorey 7’s this season.
