At 6’6 you’d fail to miss him! That’s if, of course, he isn’t standing behind a pillar... Yes, this tall and slender member of the Committee goes by the name of Cormac O’Keefe and can be seen sporting a Cardiff Devils jersey ‘behind the scenes’.
A keen sportsman, Cormac enjoys attempting to play ice hockey with a local pineapple coloured recreational team, has experience in playing roller hockey and in his spare time, likes to watch various countries (including his favourite- England!) play rugby, football and cricket.
Another member of the Shooting Stars Ice Hockey team, this time the Head Coach.
