The University is the Club’s most significant benefactor and the President of the University, Professor Andrew Deeks is the Club’s Patron. The club has always been grateful for the generosity of the University to the club culminating in the world class facilities in Belfield provided by the University.
In turn, the club has and continues to represent its patron in a manner which brings credit the University.
