  • Ciara McEllistrim
    • Position: Captain.
    • Email:

Ciara, better known as Captain Kerrygold, has been a climber since 2015, and a hiker since not long after. While her pace is very slow, other hikers have realised she is useful to bring along, since her hair emits over 700 lumens of light, making her better than almost all headtorches. Having become bored wrestling with pebbles, she has taken to wrestling with the steering wheel of her car. Undecided as to whether she would rather drive like a granny or a fighter pilot, she combines the two styles, flying around corners at high speed. Safety first: Do not feed after midnight Do not offer to sell her a duck Do not attempt to play poker with her Do not leave alone in a room with Pierce Hosey, as they will both be confused and believe they are looking in a mirror

  • Marc Higgins
    • Position Treasurer

Aka. Big Mac is currently working on ways to improve the well know big mac. Through his PhD in beef he has had promising results with adding a third level to infamous Big Mac. There was high hope for him as a graduate of Mcdonald's IT when he discovered a 5th way of shaping their chicken nuggets. All this study and research has taken it toll on Marc causing him to become fatigued in scotland due to small quantities of snow. He was able to recover quickly thanks to the support of his loving future wife, a red mazda CX 5.

  • Pierce Hosey

  • Colin Delahunt
    • Position Climbing Vice Captain.
    • Email:

Aka The Human Mop. He thinks long unkept hair and longboarding makes him look cool. His favorite pastime is to ask david to get thing from the top or bottom shelf when he is wearing his uniform. Still trying to figure out what people older than him do for fun

  • Ellen King
    • Position Public relations officer.
    • Email:

Aka D4, loves to ride horses. They seem to get more action than so other people in her life. Will sleep through anything but Darude Sandstorm which will wake her from even the most whisky induced comas. Has a tendency to damage items in the houses she rents, mainly breaking the legs off tables and not even in the mountaineering way. Warning do not highfive while drunk, will aim for face.

Aka, Cory. Joined club 2016 'till present. He participated.

  • Ben Nolan
    • Position Climbing Training Safety Officer.
    • Email:

Aka Jon Snow. He gets his alias, not from the sight resemblance of jon snow but because he knows nothing. As a newish member, he has embodied the true meaning of the club: Get some americans, fool around with them for a semester, never see them again and wait for the next batch to come in. This is why he spends hours curling his hair into the perfect bob every morning.

  • Cathal Breathnach
    • Position Committee adviser.
    • Email:

Cathal Breathnach Aka Charlie is an old young member of NUIG MC. He has a strange habit of getting into incidents with reindeer. The last one left him with a broken arm. He is the lead singer of the boy band called Rover Bandits. There was some tension in the band when one member fired a projectile at him in the Róisin. May have a rivalry with Tommy.

  • Orla Mulligan
    • Position Ordinary Committee Member.
    • Email:

She is a loveable creature who like to dress up as Bambi or something like that. (No one could tell what she was and were too polite to say it. May have been a cat or a deer, who knows) Loves going for ski holidays but for the life of her can't remember the night. Rumor has it there is a terminator picture of her floating around the internet.

  • Thomas Dunford
    • Position Ordinary Committee Member.

Aka Huggy Bear Is currently in a band called the Cider Wasps. He was allowed to join back in 2013 as a participating member, after the other members felt sorry for him.

He has recently became friends with Colin where they spend long hours measuring the length of their mop top to see who’s is longer. While Colin is winning Tommy claims volume is what really matters.
