It is a great honour to be elected President of Co. Carlow Football club for the 2017/18 season. I have a long and passionate relationship with Co. Carlow Football Club both as a player and administrator. I had the privilege of being elected Club Captain in the 2000/01 season and the ultimate club honour has now been bestowed upon me. In this Presidential role, I will endeavour to be a strong ambassador for our club and will always promote us as a welcoming, family friendly, approachable and professionally run volunteer organisation.

A big thank you to the outgoing coaching staff of the first team. Padraig Brennan and David Bermingham are passionate “Club Men” who have provided tremendous service to the club over the last number of years. I hope they enjoy their sabbatical ……..

I would like to wish new club coach, Stephen Ashmore a successful season. Best wishes to all the teams for the year ahead, men’s, women’s, youths, and minis. I hope you train hard, play hard, respect the referee and coaches but most importantly enjoy the year.

I would like to thank all the committees, teams, coaches and club volunteers for their ongoing efforts to meet the immeasurable demands of a rugby club in the current era. Our club volunteers are the back bone of our club and without their unwavering support the club would simply not survive. We continuously seek new volunteers and I extend a wish to all parents and supports to assist the club just as the coaches assist your children in rugby and discipline development.

I would like to congratulate our neighbours Tullow RFC on their Towns Cup success of 2017.
Personally, I have had many battles on the pitch with our neighbours but in the true spirit of rugby I have developed numerous lifelong friendships along the way.

The progress of our youth / mini teams will shape our future of the club. Our Under 18s team swept the board this year winning the Leinster League, Cup and South East. The majority of this team started together at under 8 level and all of their coaches along the way played a significant part in their fantastic achievements of the season.

I would like to thank our main sponsors Netwatch and indeed all of our sponsors who support the club in our various fundraising events. The survival of any voluntary sporting organisation is heavily reliant on sponsorship and financial assistance. I wold ask all our members to support our local businesses in the way that they support our club.

I look forward to meeting as welcoming all our members and visitors to our famous provincial club.

Yours in rugby,

Ian Dwyer

President 2017/18.
