Cork Con FC President
It is my honour to write to you as our Club embarks on the challenges of the 2017/18 Rugby Season.
It was most appropriate that in our 125th Year the Club enjoyed the level of success achieved and, as always with Cork Constitution, we must strive to emulate the performances and campaigns of previous years, thus maintaining the traditions of our Club. Our Club Captain Niall Kenneally leads the senior squad for another year and they are really looking forward to the challenge before them with great enthusiasm.
Our Juvenile and Youth Sections, the future of our Club, are also back in action and it is my pleasure to confirm that in the Spring of 2018, it is hoped that both our Under 13s and Under 18s will undertake trips overseas to France and Canada respectively. Much hard work is required in the planning and funding of these tours and I would encourage all members to assist where possible.
A special word of thanks to our Sponsors who continue their vital financial support, all of which they have seen put to very good use. We very much appreciate their help and we are confident that, in like fashion, their association with Cork Constitution continues to be of benefit.
Peter O’Mahony’s selection as Lions Test Captain last June brought a further most significant chapter in our Club’s history with Peter joining Tom Kiernan amongst a very select group of Con and Irish rugby players who have been chosen to lead a Lions Test team. We thank Peter for the very generous gesture of donating his Test Jersey to the Club which we will proudly display in the Clubhouse.
Our Club has always been a family and community based organization and we will continue over the coming season to uphold those values which make Cork Constitution so special.
I would like to wish all Members every health and happiness in the coming Season and I look forward to meeting everybody in Templehill as often as possible.
