MEET THE TEAM
Mark Williams: Owner
It’s pretty safe to say Mark has given most sports a go. Growing up in Santry he played football for St Kevin’s. He’s had a go at horse-riding, sailing, kayaking, surfing. He’ll have a run around the tennis court. And he’s pretty good at the golf too. He has run a half-marathon and entered a few triathlons. Right now, he’s mad into trail running and mountain biking, mostly at Carrick Mountain in Glenealy.
With a background in engineering and technology, he likes to know how things work and this is evident in the apparel and footwear he chooses for The Sports Room. All products have been researched and carefully chosen to help improve your sporting performance.
Ciara Kavanagh: Owner
You’ll either find Ciara on the court at Wicklow Tennis Club or at a yoga class at Ananta Yoga Studio. A bit of a dodger of PE in school, now that she has four children of her own she realises the importance of sport for general well-being, mental and physical health and is delighted to see her children so involved in football, tennis, rugby, hockey and athletics around Wicklow Town.
With a background in marketing, pr and event management in the area of design, Ciara is using her skills to create something a little bit different when it comes to shopping for sport in Wicklow.
Enda has been around bikes for a long time – a biking career that is as varied as it is long. Now a fully qualified Cytech mechanic, he was once one of the original group of intrepid Dublin city bicycle couriers in the late eighties. He as pedaled worldwide over the years both on and off-road from mountain biking in the Alps to extensive touring throughout Europe, Asia and Australia.
A mountain-bike coach and father of three, he is now also expert in all things two-wheeled in the small persons world!
At only 17 years of age, Cian already has eight years of road racing experience under his cap. He has raced abroad in Belgium and the UK, representing the National Academy. A self-proclaimed bike fanatic, he is interested in all things bike. You’ll find him in The Bike Room on a Saturday, helping Enda out with bike assembly and maintenance. A versatile employee, we’ll often grab him into The Sports Room too on a busy day!
