May Committee Meeting

Committee meeting

Your DFR committee will be meeting this Thursday 16 May.  We’ve plenty to discuss as usual, chiefly the ongoing preparations for the Pride Run (have you registered yet? or volunteered yet?)

If you have any issues you’d like the committee to consider, please advise club secretary Kieran Cooney ( by close of business this Wednesday (15th).

For our newer members, the committee comprises:

Chairman Ronan MacMuiris
Secretary Kieran Cooney
Treasurer Dave Prendergast
Pride Run race director Dave Shaw
Web/social Andy Chambers
Race/competition Aidan Rodgers
Women/Couch to 5k Val Maher


If you’re interested, hopefully by now you’ll have returned the discounted postal entry form. Please also let me know if you’ll be attending the Ferndale dinner on the Saturday night. We’ll organise car-pooling closer to the date.


Well done to all who got up before the crack of dawn last weekend for the Darkness into Light run for Pieta House.  On your way to the Park at 4am you may well have passed a few DFRs on their way home after a late night out…

Theatre Festival outing

There was a good crowd of boys out last Saturday night for “Stripped” (yes, he did, the full Monty) and the girls also had their night out in North Great George’s St (which is a good bit north of South Great George’s St).  And then a big crowd out for post-theatre critical analysis and size comparisons in the Front Lounge afterwards. Thanks to Andy for the selection.

Pride Run

It’s getting closer – less than six weeks away – so please register if you haven’t done so, or make yourself available to help out on the day.  We have plenty of flyers available for distribution.
