“Our hearts so stout have brought us fame
for soon 'tis known from whence we came
where e'er we go they dread the name
of Garryowen in glory”

US 7th Cavalry Association

Message from the President

It is with a profound sense of honour and pride, that I take over as President of this great club in its 134th Year.  The sentiment however, is tinged with sadness due to the passing of our president elect, Paul O’Byrne in May of 2017.  Paul was a highly-respected Consultant Surgeon. His leadership and affable character will be sorely missed by the Garryowen FC Family.  Ar dheis de go raibh an anam.

I welcome all our members, friends, guests and visiting teams to Dooradoyle for what we hope will be a successful year. I would like to wish our senior coaches, Conan and Paul, the best of luck in their efforts within the top tier of Irish Club Rugby.

I sincerely hope the captains, coaches, managers and all those associated with our Seconds, Thirds, Under 20 and Under-Age Teams have an enjoyable and successful season. Our under-age section, under the guidance of Michael Power, along with top class coaches, is highly regarded throughout the Country.

A special word of thanks to our many sponsors. Your support is greatly appreciated. I would also like to thank all those who advertise with pitch side hoarding, those who support our fund-raising events and attend our pre-match lunches. I would also like to thank everyone who took part in or supported the Garryowen Golf Classic.

It would be remiss of me not to acknowledge the efforts and tremendous contribution of our members, volunteers and executive in the day to day running of the Club.

Finally, it gives me immense pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to all the visiting teams, coaches, members and club executives to Garryowen FC. I trust your trip to Dooradoyle will be an enjoyable one. I look forward to meeting you before and after the game in our clubhouse.

Yours in Rugby

Tony O’Rourke
Hon President
Garryowen FC
2017/18
