It was shortly after they married they started Dundrum AC and both of them are still at it all these years later. A shining example to us all, between them they must have coached hundreds if not thousands of national and international winners over the years. Competitive athletics owes them a huge round of applause . They are a lesson to all aspiring coaches of what can be achieved when you commit to your sport. I have very fond memories of Donal Hennigan, Stephen Judge & I as young teenagers all meeting at the squash courts in the DFRC on a Monday evening, to be given the training for the evening by Eddie in his Garda uniform. So if you’d all care to join me in raising a virtual glass to toast Eddie & Liz. Yours in Athletics, Declan Ryan Chairman DSDAC
