I extend a warm welcome to our members, players, friends and visitors throughout this season. Firstly may I thank Portlaoise RFC for extending me the honor to represent the club as President for the coming season. I have been a member of the club for over twenty years and have enjoyed every moment.
On the field this year we are striving to get promoted and have good cup run. To the captains, coaches’ managers’ volunteers, parents, from minis, youth, ladies and senior; a sincere thanks for giving up your free time to promote the game of rugby and support Portlaoise RFC
Off the field I would express my gratitude to the committee and sub-committees for their continued support in bringing the club forward year by year. Finally I hope the game of rugby at all grades continues to be played and enjoyed in the true spirit of Portlaoise RFC. Pat Hooban. President, 2019-2020
As captain of Portlaoise RFC First XV, it gives me great honour to welcome all players, members, supporters, match officials and the public to our grounds here in Togher.
It was a privilege to be elected as Club Captain for the 2019/2020 season. I am looking forward to a successful season with Portlaoise RFC both on and off the pitch alongside the players, coaching staff, committee and supporters. Our facilities in Togher are continuously progressing which is a tribute to the fantastic hard work that is contributed from all across the club behind the scenes.
I would like to extend a special welcome to all our new players, coaches and members. And finally, may I wish all the best to everyone who wears the Portlaoise RFC crest this season and I look forward to seeing you all either on the pitches or in the clubhouse this year.
