Ross McQuillan


  • Ulster
  • Ireland

Ross learned his shooting at Belfast Royal Academy and the University of Edinburgh. This is his fifth Great Britain tour, his second with the GB Palma Team, but his first to Australia. He is the current Ireland National Match Captain, and has been shooting for Ireland since 1995, gaining a total of 31 National and Mackinnon match appearances to date. He has toured New Zealand, Germany, South Africa, the USA and the Channel Islands with either Ireland or GB and represented Northern Ireland at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

A country boy stranded in London, Ross seeks regular sanctuary at leafy Bisley, where he won the St George's in 2006. He has also had success on tour, notably a second place finish in the Canadian Grand Aggregate the same year.

Ross is a property manager at Broadgate in the City of London.  When not at work or on the range, he enjoys making a mess in the kitchen, a taste of whiskey (or whisky), hill walking, watching football and rugby, and his daily (and occasionally victorious) battle with the Guardian crossword.
