GALLERY: Irish Legends take on the Amputee team

The Irish Amputee Football team had a day to remember at the FAI National Training Centre in Abbottstown when they came up against a star-studded FAI Selection.
18th Dec 2016

The amputee team came up against a side that included Damien Duff, Robbie Keane, Graham Barrett, current Shamrock Rovers manager Stephen Bradley and Republic of Ireland U21 Head Coach Noel King. The game was played as preparation to the European Championships that take place in 2017. 

The Irish Amputee Football Association operate under the FAI's Football For All programme and will provide any person with an amputation, congenital deficiency, or other limb affecting disorder with the opportunity to access Amputee Football at grassroots, club and national level. Training sessions are open to both male and female amputees of all ages.
