Presidents Message


It is a great honour and privilege to be elected President of Gorey Rugby Club for 2023-2024.

I wish to extend a very warm welcome to everybody involved in Gorey RFC and I wish players, coaches and volunteers the best for the coming season.

This year, we will be fielding 20 teams in Gorey RFC, from mini to youths, boys and girls and senior men and women. This is a huge undertaking and I wish our coordinators and coaches and managers all the best. They are the unsung heroes of our club.

We recognise the growth of women’s rugby nationally and look forward to welcoming more and more women into the club as players, managers and coaches.

I would like to wish our senior men’s captain Mark Kehoe, every success as the men’s team embarks on another season in a very competitive Division 1A of the Leinster League. I also wish our senior women’s team the very best in their pursuit of success in the Leinster League.

The financial support of our sponsors and advertisers allows us to plan with confidence year on year and your support is very much appreciated. In particular, the support of our Senior Sponsors, Pettitt's SuperValu, Youth & Women’s Rugby Sponsors, Weatherglaze Systems and Mini Rugby Sponsors, Pirates Cove, is essential. We have many more sponsors for dugouts, pitch signs, scoreboard and post pads - we thank you all for your essential support and encourage our members to support our sponsors at every opportunity.

Gorey RFC has developed into a vibrant, successful and ambitious club over the last 54 years because of you our members - players, coaches, committee members, coordinators and volunteers. We simply cannot achieve success without your passion, enthusiasm and help. Best wishes for the 2023-2024 season and continued success to one and all.

Yours in Rugby

David Swaine 
Club President 2023-2024
