Niall and Paul Silke (Oughterard AFC) were delighted to present a cheque to Siobhan Carroll, of ACT for Meningitis - the proceeds from the Ray Rooney Memorial Cup match on December 27th.
This most worthy local charity was chosen by our opponents, Oughterard AFC, in memory of a friend.
Thanks to our players (coaches) on the day: Karl Nesbitt, Niall Rooney, Steve Delaney, Paraic Timon, Eamon O'Shea, Alan Shaughnessy, David Cunningham, Billy Clery, Joe Treacy, Erin Lynch (C), Derrick McDonnell, Matty Flynn, and Eric Rooney for participating. And also, to our manger, Ronan Rooney.
This event takes place every Christmas in aid of a different charity. This year, Bearna-Na Forbacha Aontaithe won back the cup, which was named in memory of Niall's father, Ray.
