There is a long link between my family and the club.  My father is an honorary life member and my grandfather and I both played rugby for the Club. O’Driscoll’s is named for my mother’s family, whose ancestors were the legendary Irish O’Driscoll’s pirate clan. As an authentic local brand, we are delighted to be sponsoring this initiative.”
