PRO Details

Following the Annual General Meeting on Friday last, Ciaran Tynan has been elected as club PRO for the forthcoming year. This is a position that requires a lot of feedback from competitors doing events in order for weekly reports to be compiled and competitors to get a mention in the papers etc. We ask that if you are competing somewhere, send a quick e-mail with results or any stories regarding club members on events throughout the year. These can then be added to weekly reports, otherwise you can’t be guaranteed a mention. Ciaran’s e-mail address is
