Tony has served on the committee for many years and has held numerous positions, always steering the club to success.

Dave Donlon, a member for 37 years, has been on the DPS committee since 1984 and much of that time he has held the position of treasurer. Dave is the backbone of DPS always a steady hand at the helm of the club, ensuring and safeguarding the financial stability and wellbeing of DPS at every turn.

Colm Kane, over the past 30 years, has been an integral part of DPS. He has served on the committee
for a considerable number of years and has held various positions including Chairman, and the Selection Committee.
Colm is the only ‘Film’ photographer in DPS and probably most of Ireland. He has remained true to his craft, developing his stunning photographs in his own dark room. Over the years Colm has shared his vast knowledge of photography with all members And been a wonderful mentor to new members.
