About Us

About Us - History

UCD Rifle Club was formed in 1989.

Through the hard work and determination of its President, Dave Cooney, and the clubs first captain, Callaghan Cotter, and the first committee. The range was originally in the back of the sports centre, but November 1991 saw the club moving to its present location, in the boiler house's basment. A lot of work has been done to bring the range to its present condition, especially in recent years with great strives to ensure ISSF standards.

The Club has continued to grow, averaging around 300 members a year, which makes it one of the largest indoor clubs in UCD.
