President’s Welcome

2019-2020 CIYMS RFC

It’s a great honour to take on the role of President of CIYMS RFC for 2019/20. The club has a wonderful tradition, is approaching its Centenary in 2022 and will be competing once again in Kukri Championship One  – the top Division in Ulster Provincial Rugby. We have competitive 2nd and 3rd XV teams , with a vibrant Minis section which we are hugely proud of and is surely among the best in Ulster. And our facilities are simply second to none.


The club has enormous potential – the challenge we face is getting greater participation from the CI community and bringing new faces through. The club is full of great people and there is a role for everyone that wants one. Whether it’s taking on a sponsorship package, helping the Latte Ladies for the Minis, selling IRFU Ballots, helping with International tickets, running a fundraising Quiz – the list is endless.  We need more people to do a little bit more and we will all see a massive difference in all aspects of the club. As President this year, my goal will be to help make that happen.


I wish everyone well for a wonderful 2019/20 – and lets all think how we can do that little bit more to support this great club.
