Meet the Warriors – John Toner

ewrfcadminMeet the Warriors

Why did you join?

I was new to Dublin, I had an interest in rugby and wanted to learn how to play. It was a great way to meet new people, learn a sport and get a new hobby.

What does being a Warrior mean to you?

Being a warrior to me means being part of a community.

What have you learned/gained since joining the Warriors?

I have gained a community, a group of life long friends and a sense of belonging in the gay community in Dublin. I have learned a huge amount of knowledge on rugby (when I started I new literally nothing), and it helped me rekindle my love of sport!

What has been your favourite moment/memory of being a Warrior?

My favourite memories have to be some of the tournments we have played over the past few years. In particular the Bingham Cup in Amsterdam. 

Any advice for aspiring Warriors?
