President's Message

I am delighted to take over the President’s role in this great Club for the Season 2022 /2023.

All three main sports sections continue to thrive and it is particularly pleasing to undertake the role this season with our Rugby and Hockey senior teams now back competing on an All-Ireland basis where our Cricket Section continues to compete. This makes Instonians unique as the only sports club in Ireland to compete at the highest level of the respective three sports.
All three sections continue to have thriving age grade sections also and their success continues to be illustrated through competitive achievements and the growing number of participants that come to the respective sports sections.

We have a first this year also with the Rugby Section starting its first girls team at U12 level with a plan to grow this over the coming seasons.
I am also lucky that there are so many volunteers taking up a number of over one hundred and fifty roles to make the Club the success that it is. Thank you one and all as volunteers are the life blood of any Club. We are also fortunate to have the continued support of so many sponsors and friends of the Club without which we couldn’t offer such a high standard of sports facilities and coaching. To each and every sponsor I say thank you.
I hope to see as many games at both youth and adult level throughout the season starting with the Cricket Section over the summer. I would also love to meet as many members and friends of the Club as possible too so if you see me come over and say hello!

Finally please enjoy the fantastic facilities that we offer at Shaws Bridge both on and off the various playing fields. Information can be found on this website as well as a host of Instonians social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Just look us up.

To another successful season!

Owen Lambert
