Message from the President of UCD RFC

September 2022

Dear Member,

It is my great privilege to serve as club President of UCD RFC for the 2022/2023 season.

I wish our Club Captain, Bobby Sheehan and all our players every success this season. I welcome all new and returning players to the club, for what we all hope to be another successful season. A tremendous amount of work has already gone into getting us back out on the pitch. Our thanks to Bobby Byrne, our Director of Rugby and we all wish good luck this season to our coaches Kevin Croke, Mark McDermott, Ian Wyse, Stephen Aboud and the backroom team.

Thank you for being a supporter of Collidge. Whatever your connection, be you friend, parent, former player, student, alickadoo or simply an interested rugby fan, we appreciate your support in whatever way you show it.

Rugby is so much more enjoyable when played in front of an enthusiastic crowd and I urge you to come and support all the Collidge teams in Belfield over the season.

I particularly ask that we all please show respect to the match officials.

Finally, a special word of thanks goes to our main sponsors EY, and also our university, whose support is so important and greatly appreciated.

Ad Astra.

Brian Gilsenan
President UCD RFC 2022/23
