Ulster Hockey would like to congratulate Ann Rosa on her appointment as the Hockey Ireland President which was confirmed last night (26th November) at the Hockey Ireland AGM.
Ann has made a significant contribution to hockey in Ulster and Ireland is a committed member of Club KV (previously Victoria HC). Ann currently takes a lead in developing schools hockey across Ulster as the Chair of the Joint Schools Committee and as a Board member of Ulster Hockey and is also a past President of Ulster Hockey. She also finds time in amongst all of this to continue to play tennis and undertake grandparent duties to Oliver. Her appointment as Hockey Ireland President is fitting testament to her commitment to the sport.
In addition, Ulster Hockey would like to congratulate our Chair Billy Pollock and Competitions Committee Chair Iain Kelly on their appointment to the Hockey Ireland Board. Ulster Hockey wishes both good luck in helping provide direction for the sport at National level in what are very challenging times for sport.
Finally, Ulster Hockey is delighted that long time Pegasus, Ulster and Ireland stalwart Arlene Boyles has received honorary life membership of Hockey Ireland in recognition of her contribution to hockey and notably to the ongoing success of the Irish Ladies team. This is a richly deserved honour for one of the Ulster Hockey Family.
