The Management

Declan Burke

Leisure Club Manager

I manage the Ardilaun Leisure Club with the help of a wonderful team of sales and leisure instructors.

I am a fitness enthusiast who has spent over 20 years involved with leisure clubs and promoting health and fitness in the sporting sector. I have gained vast amounts of experience in membership control and fitness trends and I enjoy being on the ground floor observing, meeting and greeting the members and guests of the club.

At the Ardilaun we believe in creating a homely facility that incorporates great rapport between staff and customers and delivering this brand on a consistent basis.

I hope to see you soon in the club looking after your Health and Fitness as we all know Your Health Is Your Wealth.

Barbara Cashen

Leisure Club Sales & Accounts Manager

I have been part of the Ardilaun team since 2008 and oversee the sales, accounts, marketing, photography and advertising of the club.

The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting the customers and insuring they have a happy experience at the leisure club.

The biggest motivation for me is seeing people realizing their potential. You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great and we have a wonderful team of fitness instructors here to help you on your way!

Anne Marie Reilly Mulkeen

Assistant Manager

Hi my name is Anne Marie, I’m the Assistant Manager here in the club. I’m a country girl so my days are early but busy ones. My position is varied which I love, from teaching spinning, kettle bell, aerobics and water based activities such as swim teaching, lifeguarding and aqua aerobics.

I also look after the Koala Kids Club and Child Protection in the club. I have a Sports Management degree and enjoyed lots of travelling in the past few years before getting married and having my little girls. I look forward to seeing you in the club.
