FAI visit north Limerick clubs
Close to the Tipperary border, both Cappamore Celtic and Murroe AFC held event on Saturday evening.
Murroe AFC launched a book celebrating the history of the club. 2018 is the 50th anniversary of the club's formation and the club's committee came together to research and compile the book on the history of the club.
John Delaney (who features in the book himself) officially launched the publication in Murroe, and visited to the club's facilities. To celebrate the club's 50th anniversary, Murroe AFC were given 50 tickets to a Republic of Ireland match of their choice in Aviva Stadium later this year. Members of the first team and committee members will also be given VIP tickets to a game later this year.
Following the visit in Murroe, Delaney made the short journey to Cappamore Celtic, as the club were celebrating their end of season Awards Night for the men's junior teams.
The Chief Executive also visited the club, where he witnessed a training session involving Cappamore's league-winning Under-15 and Under-13 sides.
Cappamore Celtic chairman Joe Diggins said the event was a tremendous success.
"John's visit will be remembered for a long time into the future. For those club members who met John, it makes the work that they do for football in the locality, seem more worthwhile and gives a sense of purpose to continue the great work they are doing voluntarily."
As developments continue at Cappamore, the FAI granted the club €10,000 to help improve the pitch.
