Meet the Committee


My involvement with Skerries Town Football Club started when I was 17 years of age.
I became involved with the 2nd team was there each and every week to ensure I earned my place into the first team.
It took about two years, every Saturday or Sunday I'd be down to mark out the pitch with the late Chad Duff (who was the then chairman at that time) and from those golden days I became regular
 with the first team.

There was a dispute within the club that paved the way for us to become Home Celtic and this change would see us introduce School Boys and a Senior Team into Skerries.
 Over the following years I went on to manage schoolboy for 11 years, winning my share of leagues and cups along the way!
 A few years later we were to amalgamate with Skerries United to become what we proudly know now as Skerries Town FC.

I also played and was managed for Loughshinny FC in LSL Intermediate League and then came back to play for Skerries where I became their Player/Manager and a committee member and now Ihold the prestiges position of Club Chairman which i have enjoyed for the pass number of years.

I've been here through the tough years and through the great years and been privileged to watch my four sons play from U9-Seniors.
 It has been and continues to be an honour and pleasure to be part of such a fantastic Club.

C'mon The Town!



My Involvement with soccer in Skerries began with Skerries Home Celtic in the early 1980's. As with anyone, it started with my sons playing football so I looked after teams from under8's up.

I gradually got more involved with Soccer in general and moved in the administration section of the Brenfer League (now the North Dublin Schoolboy/ girls League) where I was Fixture Secretary for many years. As my lads grow up I eventually got my life back :) but returned to the Skerries Town when my grand kids started kicking ball, again starting at the u9s level.

I've also held the position of Child Welfare Officer during our implementation of the new Child First regulations, when we became one of the first clubs in Ireland to vet all volunteers as a matter of course and I now hold the position of Treasurer.


Commercial sales manager for Irish airline, ASL Airlines, based in Swords.
Paul spent his years as a kid playing soccer, rugby, tennis and riding competitive motorcycle trials. He represented his school in both soccer and rugby for many years and competed at British Championship level in youth trials where he competed regularly against Dougie Lampkin who went on to become multiple world & British champion.

Paul moved to Skerries in 2013 and very quickly got involved with local 5 a side games at the community Centre where he met a lot of familiar faces around the town.
Involvement with Skerries Town began in 2009 when his son Mark, aged 4 at the time joined the kids academy. The fatal mistake of asking Mick Bolger if he would like some help was made and I've been here ever since!

Now a member of the committee Paul looks after the small sided game fixtures on Saturday mornings, helps with coaching for his sons U13 team and tries to assist all managers, coaches and players in the club where possible.

Paul currently holds his Kickstart 1 and 2 certificates, now called PDP 1 & 2, his 5 a side and 7 a side coaching qualification and plans to complete PDP 3 or youth cert as it was called during this year.

To keep fit Paul still plays 5 a side every Monday & Friday and if time permits one day has ambitions of returning to play 11 a side with the over 35’s or more likely it will have to be over 45’s by the time he has a few hours at a weekend to spare.
