Message from the President of UCD RFC

August 2021

Dear Member,

It is a great privilege to have been re-elected to serve as President of UCD RFC for the 2021/22 season. After 18 months of great disruption we are all looking forward to being involved and hopefully to attend and enjoy matches once again.

The pandemic has been difficult and challenging for all in many different ways. I want to once again pay tribute to all members who served on the front line getting us all through this time. Our thoughts and solidarity remain with all who suffered loss during this time.

I am happy to report to you that the senior squad returned to training at the start of August. Training has been very positive so far and the players are looking forward to returning to play.

I wish our Captain, Jack Ringrose, and all our players, every success in the forthcoming season, especially in the AIL. The composition of each AIL Division remains unchanged from the finishing positions in 2019/20.

We acknowledge the generous financial assistance received from our Club Sponsor, Crowe, and UCD. Without such support we would find it difficult to survive, effectively, as a rugby club and we are grateful for their ongoing support over past years.

I look forward to welcoming members and friends back to Belfield this year. It is your Club. So, please do get behind all the teams and support the events during the season.

With every good wish,

David Carrigy
President UCD RFC 2021/22
