Louise is full of beans and always smiles!

Louise (aka Chief of Staff) is the captain right hand and her job is to keep all the officers on their toes with their actions and to-do list. 

She looks after the admin side of things and makes sure UCD is happy with all our paperwork.

She manages most of the club correspondences and anything to do with your membership.

Louise McCan

Club Secretary

He loves DIY jobs and fixing things that are not even broken!

Darryl (aka Jacques Cousteau) is the man who oversees the club finance and you need to keep happy after the tax man. 

Darryl has a very particular set of skills. Skills that he has acquired over a very long career. Skills that make him a nightmare for people who pay their fees late.

If you pay your fees on-time that’ll be the end of it. He will not look for you, he will not pursue you, but if you don’t, he will look for you, he will find you and he will kill you.

John is so dreamy!

John Fitz (aka Fit) is very fit and in charge of all the club equipment.

His job is to make sure the equipment you use are safe and maintained to the highest level of standard.

Don’t let his beautiful smile fool you. He bites like a shark!
