Former SU Officers

The NUI Galway Students’ Union was originally established in 1911 as the Students’ Representative Council under the direction of Bryan Cusack, and was an offshoot of the Literary & Debating Society. This council was short-lived, but the re-establishment of the body was proposed by Conor O’Malley, auditor of the 1913-1914 session of the Literary & Debating Society in his inaugural address in November 1913. The council was firmly established by the mid-1920’s, and in the 1960’s was formally developed into the university’s Students’ Union, then known as Comhairle Teachta na Mac Léinn.
