The Annual Soccer Blitz held every Easter was the brainchild of Edele & Tony Doran. The first was held in 2013. Having had the experience of cancer in their family they felt they wanted to help in some way towards the running of our Centre. This has now become an annual event which is looked forward to not only by the Organisers but by all the children, adults & clubs who take part.
To say it has gone from strength to strength over the years is an understatement. Despite the fact that unfortunately Edele passed away three years ago - Tony (Butch) and his loyal team of helpers have kept this going in memory of Edele, who worked tirelessly every year to make the event such a success.
To date the amazing sum of €31,500 has been raised for us.
This fundraising event is supported every year by various Businesses and Individuals and their support is very much appreciated.
The matches take place in Finlay Park and Whitegates and we hope it will be another fun day to be enjoyed by all.
