Club President 2020/1
Brian is a long-standing member of the club and a regular presence at Kirwan Park.
A past-pupil of De La Salle College, his love affair with rugby began, as it did for so many of us, with a trip to the old Lansdowne Road, when his uncles brought him to see a friend playing there.
Brian's playing career took in stints with CYM, DLSP and Arklow. A very brief sojourn on the wing was quickly abandoned for a long-term career as a prop/second row and a lifetime spent at the coalface. As a coach Brian has worked with both Wicklow youth teams and DLSP across multiple adult squads.
A keen member of the Ireland Touch Association, Brian represented Ireland at three World Cups, including Scotland in 2011 (assistant manager), Australia in 2015 (player) and Malaysia in 2019 (player, team manager and member of the national steering committee).
Outside of rugby, Brian is a proud father of five and grandfather of a further two! Currently working in the financial services industry, he has previously worked in hotel management and IT.
As we welcome Brian and wish him every success for the year ahead, we would also like to thank our outgoing President, Tara Finlay, for all her hard work during the year and for representing the club with distinction.
