22nd Jul 2019

 Monday's visits started with a trip to two clubs, as the FAI delegation saw the unique grounds in Drewstown House, where Raistin Rovers and Fordrew Rovers share facilities.

Oldcastle United was the next club to meet the FAI delegation, where Ireland CP international Alan Moore was honoured at his local club.

FAI President Donal Conway helped open some new facilities at Kells Blackwater, as the Meath town came out in large numbers to meet Republic of Ireland WNT star Megan Campbell, Ireland legend Richard Dunne and Republic of Ireland Under-15 Head Coach Jason Donohue.

Newtown United shone in the Meath sunshine as the club showed plans to build an all-weather pitch on site.

The day concluded with the official openings of two grounds as the ribbons were cut at Electro Celtic and Castle Villa AFC

Monday saw the first FAI Football Fun Day take place in Navan’s Blackwater Park with over 300 children in attendance, ahead of tomorrow's visit to St. Ciaran's Community School, Kells for the second Fun Day of the week.
