An exciting event takes place in the Abbey Park in Boyle at 9.30am this Sunday morning.
The local Under 8 team intend to run a half marathon!
The young footballers hope to run 52 laps of the pitch in an allocated time.
Each player will run no more than 2 laps each and just one length at a time.
The organisers are seeking small donations towards the fundraising effort on the day.
Monies raised will go towards the purchase of club gear for the lads to give them an early connection with the club and encourage them to continue to play for many years to come.
If you would like to support his novel event, please contact either Gerard Sheerin on 086 3925048 or Peter Gavigan on 086 8542686
And please drop down to the Abbey Park on Sunday morning to support these future stars.
