Goals for the Season
For the year ahead I would love to see the club move forward together and agree on a new home once and for all, and to finally eradicate our debt . We can all then concentrate on promoting rugby, and increasing the club membership both on and off the field and playing rugby at a more competitive level.
I joined Galwegians in 1982 because Seamus McEvoy, a former President, was an uncle and introduced me to the club.
- Played with the club in 2nd row from 1982 to 1985 winning Connacht Senior Cup in 1983
- Received an Ireland B cap against Scotland in November 1984.
- Played with St Mary’s in Dublin from 1985 to 1988 winning Leinster Senior cup in 1987
- Played with Connacht from 1984 to 1988
- Retired in 1988 due to Back injury
- Most memorable moment was beating the arch rivals Corinthians in Senior Cup
- Best player I played against was Donal Lenihan
- Best player I played with was Paul Dean
Outside rugby I am the Managing Director of O’Leary Insurances Galway Ltd, and am married with 3 children.
