Mothers and Others to raise funds for very worthy cause

Save the date. Put it in your diary. Members of the ladies Gaelic football community will join forces on this Saturday 27th November for a very good cause.

On that day the Duleek/Bellewstown Gaelic 4 Mothers and Others group will stage a football blitz at the grounds of Duleek/Bellewstown GFC, 11am.

They will be joined by players from a variety of other clubs in this very worthy cause including Wolfe Tones, Newstown Blues, St Colmcille's and Donaghmore/Ashbourne.

The blitz is all part of a fund-raising drive for SOSAD Ireland which aims to help family members affected by suicide.

The Gaelic 4 Mothers and Others initiative has proved to be very successful providing a popular platform for mothers and others to engage in weekly football games - and by doing help them stay fit and healthy.

It also provides members of a local community with social out and, according to a statement from the group, a chance to meet people outside the home.

Willing to help out Charley Devine Gallagher will be bravely cutting her hair short and donating it to the Rapunzel Foundation with the proceeds of the sponsorship going to SOSAD.
