Background

Hello, my name is Conor and I’ll be your Clubs’ Captain for 2017/18. I am a dual citizen of the counties of Galway and Dublin having lived the first half of my life in the capital and the rest in the west. I am a student of Earth and Ocean sciences and so naturally have a love for the outdoors. My background in sport is mainly Archery, but I have played several different sports also. I served as vice-Captain on the Archery club and before that Media Officer and Auditor in societies, so from that I have evolved into what I hope to be a very successful, influential and facilitative Clubs’ Captain.
