VMware sponsors CIT GAA Club

Published on: Friday, 03 January 2014

In a lovely function held in the CIT Council Chambers, a large attendance witnessed the commitment of VMware’s Snr. Director Global Support Services International, Mr John Dolan,  to the CIT Student GAA Club for the coming 12 months. The CIT GAA Club is thrilled to be associated with such a highly innovative and forward-thinking organisation, and it looks forward to what will be an exciting and rewarding partnership.

The Club was delighted to have in attendance the Cork Senior Football and Hurling Managers Brian Cuthbert and Jimmy Barry Murphy, and student Ciaran Sheehan who is begining his new career as a professional Aussie Rules player with Carlton this week. The CIT Student GAA Club officers took this opportunity to present Ciaran with a token of appreciation for all his efforts with the club.

As well as the club officers, and club president Eamonn Wall, there was a large number of players and management from the Camogie, Hurling, Football, and Ladies Football Clubs at the function. VMware was also well represented with Kieran Barry Murphy, International Financial Controller; Karen Egan, Senior Director EMEA Technical Support; Kieran Desmond, Senior Director of Global Services; Andrew Mulcahy Senior HR Business Partner; and John Ryan, Senior Operations Manager.

There are a number of people that the CIT Student GAA Club is indebted to for their help in securing this agreement. In particular, the Club wishes to acknowledge the contribution of John Dolan, at VMware and graduate of CIT, and Michael Loftus, Head, Faculty of Engineering & Science who, together, spearheaded this initiative. Across CIT, the Club was ably assisted by John Cogan, Kyra Dunne, and Ann O Halloran in the CIT Finance Office.

Equally, the Club wishes to acknowledge Dr Barry O Connor, Registrar & Vice President for Academic Affairs, who spoke on behalf of the Institute and to Dr Dan Collins, Academic Administration and Student Affairs and Fiona Kelly, Student Services Officer for their continued support.

The Club is very grateful to Dr Eamonn Cashell, Dean, School of Graduate Studies, who did a fantastic job as master of ceremonies.

The Club wishes to thank President Dr Brendan Murphy and his immediate staff for facilitating the CIT Student GAA Club once again with the use of the Council Chambers.
