Ian O'Connor Appointed Club Captain 2019-20

(06 Jul 2019)

We are delighted today to announce that Ian O’Connor has been appointed club captain for the 2019-20 season.

A past pupil of Blackrock College and a Salmo veteran of 15 years, including sabbaticals with Doha RFC and Bective Rangers FC, Ian was a key member of the side which lifted the Spencer Cup in such style last season and is a hugely-respected figure both on and off the pitch.


Confirming Ian’s appointment, Director of Rugby, Norman Byrne said: "Head Coach Massey Tuhakaraina, myself and the senior management group are delighted that Ian will be our new club captain. He is a leader by word and, most importantly, by deed on the field. I am certain that, as Matt was before him, he will be a great captain of the club in the round. We would like to take the opportunity to thank Matt for his great leadership and congratulate him for being a superb captain of our club."

Reflecting on his appointment, Ian said: “Being asked to take on the club captaincy is a massive honour and one that I’m really looking forward to. From the first to the final whistle I’m looking forward to the playing and coaching staff and all the club members giving their absolute best. It’s onwards and upwards from here on!”

On behalf of everyone at DLSP, we would like to wish Ian the very best of luck and every success for the season ahead
