Dennis is a deserving winner of this prestigious Ards Rugby award. The Critics Cup was put in place in 1980 to recognise some special contribution an individual has made to the life or running of the club.
Dennis is a longstanding member of Ards Rugby and indeed was part of the committee that relocated Ards Rugby to today's present site on the Landsdowne Road.
For the last nine years Dennis has been MC for the FARLS and has been integral to the raising of funds for local charities and the rugby club through these monthly lunches.
The success of the lunches is evidenced by the numbers attending them and the wide range of sports persons attending but most of all the camaraderie and craic at them.
The FARLS meet at 12noon in the Hamilton Park clubhouse on the last Friday of the month from September to April.
