Gaza football kids for Manorhamilton visit

The Al Helal Football Academy of Gaza, Palestine will be visiting Manorhamilton next Tuesday, August 1st for a day of football and fun hosted by Co Leitrim club, Manorhamilton Rangers.

The team will be arriving at 12 noon and the soccer match will kick off at 2pm and the club would appreciate a huge turnout to welcome these great players.

The day is part of the Gaza Kids to Ireland, a wonderful initiative launched by former Ireland manager Brian Kerr now in its third year.

The Gaza boys will be on a whirlwind tour of Ireland, playing in Dublin, Limerick and Galway before coming to Manorhamilton. This will be the first year they are visiting Co Leitrim which with public support will make the visit a huge success.

To help fund their trip Manorhamilton Rangers will be holding a table quiz on Thursday 27th July in Gurns Pub at 8pm. Tables are 20 each and all funds raised will go directly to the Gaza Kids to Ireland initiative.
