Presidents Message

A message from the President of Tullamore Rugby Football Club for the 2019/20 season, Mick Gunning.

As President, I would like to give a hearty welcome all our members, supporters, any visiting teams and match day officials who make the journey to Spollanstown this season.


It is a great honour for me to be elected as President of Tullamore Rugby Club for the 2019/2020 Season.

As a club we have grown considerably over the last few years. This is down to the excellent work which has and continues to be carried out in our Minis and Youths sections of the club.

I’d like to this opportunity thank and congratulate all our players, coaches, management and parents of those teams. Our success over the last 10/15 years can be linked back to our Mini’s and Youths, which is a huge testament to them and should be a massive motivation to those currently in charge of our Mini’s and Youths team.


For the coming year, I would like to wish our Club Captain Kevin Browne, Ladies Captain Emer Phelan and their teams a successful and productive season. Equally I would like to wish all our players, guardians, volunteers, coaches and management of all teams a successful and enjoyable season.


I would encourage everyone to get behind all our teams and give them the support their efforts deserve.

A special word of thanks to our generous sponsors for their continued support, which is very much appreciated. I would request all our members to support them whenever and wherever possible.

Finally our club could not function without our volunteers. We are fortunate to have a group of dedicated members who give up their time to ensure the smooth running of the club. A big thank you to every one of you.


Also if you are new to our club or are a returning member, we are always looking for new volunteers and coaches. We have a dedicated membership coordinator and hope to appoint a volunteer coordinator also, who will both coordinate and support our volunteers. My love for this club grew from playing and more so in recent years through volunteering as a coach, so I would highly encourage anyone interested to get involved and help make our club better and stronger.


I look forward to welcoming you, our many friends and guests to Spollanstown. I hope you all have a competitive, injury free and enjoyable season.
