Welcome to Dr. Hickey Park.

Win, lose or draw, I hope you enjoy your day here at Greystones Rugby Club.

This season we look forward to a renewal of our efforts to be successful and gain promotion to Division 2.

Despite a great effort our senior team narrowly missed out on promotion last season. Having finished second in the league we lost by the narrowest of margins in the playoffs.

I wish our new captain Killian Marmion, our first 1st team coach Kevin Lewis, his assistant coaches, management and medical teams the best of luck in their endeavours to gain promotion this season. You have all our support.

Our club in many faceted. Our Woman’s, Junior, Youth and Seagull teams. You had great success last year. I wish you continued success and an enjoyable season. I want to thank you and I hope to meet you all, players, parents, coaches and managers in the coming season.

Our referees and officials the game can’t be played without you. Thank you.

Club is not a club without the support and loyalty of its members. Please continue to support the club in any way you can. Attend a pre-match lunch, visit the club house where you’ll be assured a warm welcome by Justin and his staff.

A big thank you to all our volunteers who make the sacrifices to ensure the smooth running of our great club. Our chairman Donall Gannon, Club Secretary Anne Bowes, Treasurer Niall Savage, Director of Rugby Barry Kealy and all our executive committee members.

To our Bar Manager Justin O’Reilly and to Willie Byrne and his ground staff. Thank you.

A major thank you to all our sponsors, advertisers and all who financially support our club. In particular the continued support of our main sponsors Peter and Ross Doyle of Doyle Bloodstock Ltd; Dwyer Nolan Developments Ltd. (U-20 Sponsor) and O’Gorman Properties (Youth Sponsor).

Finally I would like to say, we hope you will enjoy your day here in Greystones. Victory by the host side would be preferable. But whatever the result please join us afterwards for a drink in the bar and in good rugby tradition depart as friends.

 

Your in rugby
