David Murphy – Head Coach
I’d like to extend my best wishes to Gearoid O’Grady on succeeding Rob O’Beirn as club captain. Gearoid has represented the 1st XV with distinction over several seasons and is highly regarded by team mates and opponents alike.
He will be captaining a team who fought all the way through what was a very challenging season and I have no doubt that the team’s spirit and resilience will stand us in good stead for 2016-17.
As well as welcoming several new faces to the playing squad, we are delighted to welcome Ryan Corcoran to the coaching panel.
Whilst wishing all players the very best for the coming season, I would like to pay particular mention to the committees and members who do so much of the unseen work in order that the club can field teams here in Donnybrook and around the country.
