It is often said, that you can’t know where you’re going, until you know where you have been. And, why it was so important that catalogue our history, recognising the most valued contributions of so many past members. Sadly, some of whom are no longer with us.
As we grow older, stories, and people can get lost in the sands of time, it is fantastic that we can move forward in the knowledge that our history is protected. I hope you will find, it as I did, quite humbling to read of the struggles, efforts, and occasions of satisfaction in developing a rugby club in Clondalkin over 40 years ago, and to be acutely aware that without the work of so many volunteers the Club would not be here. Indeed, history can and does repeat itself, but armed with the knowledge of how we have dealt with issues in the past it allows us to make more informed decisions into the future.
Most importantly, one overriding, feature when reading through our history, was the outstanding work of club volunteers, and I would like to think that this review, recognises and references, with great respect, their most valued contribution.
Clondalkin Rugby Club - built on the shoulders of many - to another 40 years!
