Fossa GAA Club is organising a fundraiser for club activities and has put together ‘A Night with Legends’ at the INEC, Killarney on July the 5th.
Some of the greatest legends ever to grace a Gaelic football pitch will share a stage on July 5.
Kerry greats like Pat Spillane, Mikey Sheehy, Jack O’Shea, Darragh O’Se, Mike Frank Russell, Paul Galvin, Eamon Fitzmaurice and Darren O’Sullivan will be joined by heroes from across the border counties like Niall Cahalane, Jimmy Barry Murphy and Larry Tompkins – Fossa will also have the privilege of having all time greats like Peter Canavan, Colm O’Rourke, Bernard Brogan Senior and the one and only Joe Brolly.
Killarney and East Kerry hero’s – Colm ‘Gooch’ Cooper and Ambrose O’Donovan will also be there.
The event will be styled on RTE’s popular pre-All-Ireland Final show ‘Up for the Match’ where footballing legends will tell some of their life stories in between music and songs and will be hosted by author and raconteur Billy Keane and horseracing photographer Pat Healy.
“We promise that it will be a night full of fun and laughter and some great memories and stories will be remembered from some of the greats of the GAA world,” Siobhan Kissane, chairperson of the organising team, said.
This event is one of the key fundraisers for the expanding Fossa GAA Club.
“The club is expanding, there are a lot of new people moving into the area, and our traditional income streams were reduced during the pandemic,” added Siobhan, who is also the club’s Coiste na nÓg officer.
The fundraising drive is a joint effort between the men’s, ladies and youth arms of the club with backing from the club’s executive.
There is a greyhound for auction on the night and a super raffle including All-Ireland tickets, super golf outings as well as luxury stay in the exclusive Hotel Europe, one of Irelands finest hotels
Tickets cost €25 per person but groups of 12 can buy 12 tickets for €250, tickets can be purchased online or from any of the Fossa club officers; see the Fossa FB pages
