The annual UCD RFC dinner returned last week after two years of being postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The dinner is always the highlight of the club’s calendar and one that Crowe very much look forward to attending in our role as club sponsors. This year’s guest speaker was Paul O’Connell who shared his many experiences as captain of Munster, Ireland and the British & Irish Lions, and in his current role as Irish Rugby Forwards Coach.
This year the club marked the special milestone of our tenth year as official club sponsor. Club President David Carrigy thanked Crowe for the partnership and support since 2013 that has enabled the club to develop extraordinary talent, with many of its players going on achieve great success at provincial and international level. He then called on Rob Kearney, UCD RFC, Leinster, Ireland and Lions rugby legend to present Naoise Cosgrove, Crowe Managing Partner, with a framed jersey to mark the special relationship between Crowe and UCD RFC. The caption reads ‘UCD RFC and Crowe 2013-2022. A partnership that helped build outstanding success’.
Speaking after the presentation, Naoise Cosgrove thanked the club and spoke of the shared ethos between Crowe and UCD RFC. “We have been delighted to partner with UCD Rugby over the last 10 years.
Crowe has been proud to be able to support the club in what it does best – developing young talent and ensuring its players reach their full potential, both personally and professionally.
The sponsorship has been an important part of our ongoing commitment to attract and develop the best young talent in the country both on and off the field through our graduate and sponsorship initiatives. Our involvement with the club and its players has provided valuable insights and great inspiration for our trainees as they embark on their career in professional services.”
Crowe teamed up with UCD RFC in 2018 on a special joint initiative called 'IT'S YOUR TEAM'.
Through a series of interviews with past and present players, we celebrate the rich heritage of the club and our shared ethos of fostering talent and forging lasting relationships. With over 20 interviews in total, players share valuable insights into how being part of the club has impacted their careers on and off the field and the lasting relationships they have built. Watch the interviews here.
Just as UCD Rugby is known for cultivating talent, Crowe also prides itself on supporting the development of the best talent across our practice, whether it be at graduate level or among our more experienced staff.
