On day 1 of the Expo, we had the pleasure of introducing UCD President Prof. Andrew Deeks to many clubs. After his visit, the President spoke with enthusiasm about the club committees and the effort they  put in:

Club sport is integral to the student experience at UCD and we are fortunate to be able to offer such a diverse and excellent range of activities for our students. I would like to thank the committee members, coaches and volunteers involved with our clubs who give of their time and expertise to provide opportunities and thereby enrich our student experience. I wish the clubs every success for the year ahead and thank Bank of Ireland for their continued support of this event.” 

On the final day of the Expo, the Best Stand Award was announced and this year the Men’s and Ladies Boat Club were the deserving winners.
