The President is primarily an honorary position within the club and acts as the club’s representative at internal and external functions.

The current presidential chain of office was made in 1981 by Lee Brothers (still in business at Santry Business Park) and ordered through JJ Kenneally Jewellers, 45 Wickham St, Limerick. The chain was sponsored by Hal Lewis, Pat Gleeson, Pat Canny, John Walsh, Michael Naughton, Frank Keohan(e), Evan Conroy and James O'Mahoney 

Initial listing derived from name plates on the chain, dates from 1954 to 1982 come from a research document in Stan Russell's archive. Further research needed for  years 1961, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1985, 1986, 1989, 1990, 1991.

Lord Adare First President to 1953 (clarification is needed. A newspaper article for 1948 has Viscount Adare as president. Windham Henry Wyndham-Quin, 5th Earl of Dunraven and Mount-Earl CB DSO died 23 October 1952, another newspaper article shows "the Earl of Dunraven CB CBE MC" as 1953 president, research shows titles and medal are correct for Richard Southwell Windham Robert Wyndham-Quin6th Earl of Dunraven and Mount-Earl.  The Viscount and Earl titles were held simultaneously. This would indicate that the fifth and sixth Earls of Dunraven were the first and second presidents of the club)
