Presidents Message

I am delighted and honoured to have been asked to serve as President of UCC RFC for the coming season. It has a particular personal resonance for me as my father (who passed away last October) was President for two years from 2005 to 2007 and I can only hope to emulate his time in office. It is a great testament to our club that we continue to perform at the highest levels of rugby in Ireland in Division 1A. It is both mine and the wider clubs fervent wish that we will maintain our standing at this level into the future.

History

I am delighted and honoured to have been asked to serve as President of UCC RFC in this our first ever season in the Premier Division 1A of the All Ireland League.

I, like so many others of you have so many happy memories of my time playing with UCC Rugby where great friendships were formed which have lasted a life time. I am very conscious that those who have enjoyed this privilege have an obligation in ensuring that the current crop of students have a similar experience playing with UCC Rugby.
