Election of President for 2019-20 Season


We are very proud to announce the election of Tara Finlay as club president for the 2019-20 season. As we enter our 120th year it is with great pleasure that we welcome Tara as the first female president in the club’s history.

The Finlay name is synonymous with Kirwan Park and DLSP. Tara and her husband Paul (a keen photographer who has covered numerous club fixtures and social events) are permanent fixtures on the touchline, supporting their sons Scott, Dylan, Jake, Tadgh and Max who have all represented the club with distinction.

In addition to supporting the Finlays on the pitch, Tara is a prolific member of the club’s social committee and one of the key driving forces behind events such as the President’s Dinner, the Players’ Dinner and the hugely successful Ladies Lunches in aid of various charitable organisations. She embodies the club’s ethos of inclusivity and positivity and we have no doubt she will bring these values to her presidency also.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our outgoing president Declan Farrelly for his excellent work during his term of office and wish Tara every success for her presidency in the season to come.
