Con Nolan, No Name Club CEO commented: “Both the No Name Club and the Road Safety Authority were delighted with the high level of interest shown in the competitions and the standard of entries. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the clubs and the hosts and hostesses who took time to put entries together. Road safety is a critical issue in Irish society and we are working with our members to engage them on the matter in their teenage years, before they get behind the wheel of a car. These competitions were a fun way to address it and we hope those who participated enjoyed it and it brought a very important issue to their attention. Congratulations to the winners, who came out on top of what was a very high calibre of entry. I’d also like to take the opportunity to thank the Road Safety Authority for their continued support of the No Name Club.”
