Mungret St. Pauls GAA club is to hold a charity football match in memory of the passing of local man, Stephen Cahill.
Cahill, a former principal of the Mungret primary school, passed away in October of this year. He was heavily involved in the GAA and coached for nearly 30 years at club and school level.
His three sons, Donal, Micheál and Eoin are organising the fundraiser.
Speaking to The Limerick Voice, family friend Seán O’Dea said Stephen was a massive part of the community.
“Stephen was well-known and very active in the GAA club but the major thing was that he touched a lot of people, especially through the school. We’re holding the fundraiser to mark the memory of a community member and raise some money for two charities close to Stephen’s heart”.
The event takes place on St. Stephens’s day, December 26th, in Mungret St. Pauls GAA, kicking off at 12pm. The game is between past and current players of the club, so anyone who played at any level over the years (hurling or football) is welcome to take part. All spectators from all clubs are welcome on the day. Refreshments will be served in the clubhouse after.
All proceeds go to Headway’s – Acquired Brain Injury Ireland and Rathfreadgh Chesire Home in Newcastlewest.
