On behalf of County Carlow Football club, it gives me great pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to all members, players, coaches, dedicated volunteers, officials, visiting teams and supporters. I am privileged to be involved with Carlow rugby for the last twenty years, both on and off the field and becoming President for the season 2016/17is certainly a very proud moment for my family and I. Carlow indeed is synonymous with the game of rugby and I am pleased to reiterate the core values on which the foundation of the club are based upon since 1873, namely teamwork, family and inclusiveness.

I would like to wish each section of the club – Minis, Youths, Tag rugby, Women’s and Men’s an injury- free and competitive season. Our Carlow Coyotes Ladies Rugby Team was founded in 2010 and is an alliance between Carlow RFC and I.T. Carlow and has gone from strength to strength since its formation. Sincere thanks to all of our players who entertain us with their skills, dedication and commitment.

To our committees and volunteers throughout the club I would like to express sincere thanks and commend them for their energy, passion and innovation that continues to grow and develop our club and I look forward to working alongside them this season.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our club members who represent us so capably at South East, Leinster and Irish rugby committee levels and also to wish the Leinster and Irish rugby teams a progressive and successful season.

I acknowledge and thank our referees for their devotion as without them the game would not survive. I thank also, all who have attended our games and I look forward to seeing more of you on the sideline this season. I would encourage people to sign up to our weekly newsletter on our website, to keep informed of upcoming fixtures and social events.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge and thank all our sponsors and in particular Netwatch our main sponsor for their excellent support and we look forward to working with them all, into the future and also welcoming new sponsors. I am looking forward to meeting both old and new friends this coming season in what I hope will be a sporting and memorable year.

Yours in Rugby,

Justin Hannon
