Play For Paddy is back!

We are delighted to be having this years event with our friends in Astropark Coolock after a great event there last year. Tournament date is Saturday 15th September. If you want to enter a team, message our Facebook page. Same format as last year - 20 teams, 4 groups, top 2 through to Q/Finals. Matches are 6-a-side with 1/2 subs. €20 a player with monies raised going to CROSS Cancer Research and St Francis Hospice Raheny.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again this year for another fantastic day of football. Regular updates about the day will be posted on our Facebook page and our Twitter page.

Hi all,
The Play for Paddy team would once again like to thank all players, sponsors, donators, raffle ticket purchasers and supporters. We were delighted to be able to pass €2389.92 onto St Francis Hospice Raheny and CROSS Cancer Research. Thanks to Stephen for showing us around the CROSS Research Centre which was an eye opening experience into the amount of work, dedication and support needed to continue the great work that they do. Thanks also to Bernadette and everyone at St Francis Hospice who all offer a huge level of support and services to those in need of care. From personal experience, the team in Raheny are amazing people.

The Play For Paddy team are overwhelmed at the support for Play For Paddy IV and delighted to announce that we raised €4,779.85 for our two chosen charities, CROSS Cancer Research and St Francis Hospice, Raheny.

Some massive thank you's needed to those who supported us.
Thanks to all the players on the day who made it a great tournament and the captains for getting teams together - sometimes its tougher than it looks.
Thanks to everyone who made donations online. We are very grateful.
Thanks to Stephen and Gene for coming out to speak to us about their charities.
Big appreciation goes out to our regular supporters - Astropark Football, Coolock for hosting the event and giving us spot prizes for the raffle, FM104 for coming out to take part, providing kids entertainment and promoting the day and TorneoPal Tournament Software for providing us with the software to keep everyone updated with results. A reminder of results are here for those who want to view -

There was some fantastic support from Brian Kennedy from Merlin Press Printing in Balbriggan, Stamullen Football Club, and Shamrock Rovers F.C.. for player donations and prizes for raffle.

Thanks to Ronan Finn and Sean Boyd for presenting the trophy and raffle prizes. Big thanks to George Kelly for coming out to take some super pics of the day. These are up on the facebook page.

We couldnt do such a great raffle without the support and prize donations from Carphone Warehouse Ireland, Currys PC World Ireland, Tifco Hotel Group, Samsung, Huawei, Irish Steel, GNS Services and Littlewoods Ireland. Well done to all of our prize winners.

A final thanks from me to the team who helped pull all this together - Eamon Moore, Elaine Carr, Emma Wheatley and Sean Kelly. Big thanks also to Gerard Wheatley and Phil Carr for helping to ensure things ran smoothly on the day.

Cant wait for Play For Paddy V!

Well done to all the teams who competed on Saturday. Everyone played their part in a great tournament. However, there can only be one winner.

Congratulations to FC Twente Blue who went one step further this year to lift the Play For Paddy IV trophy. The final was a repeat of last year with a different outcome. Hard luck to two time winners, Hairoil FC who were runners up.

The PFP team would also like to thank Ronan Finn and Sean Boyd of Shamrock Rovers F.C. for coming out and helping us with the trophy presentation and raffle.

We have lots more to thank which we will do over the coming days as we had some fantastic support from sponsors and donators this year. We are also working through the final amount raised for St Francis Hospice Raheny and CROSS Cancer Research which will be announced in due course.
