Brendan Cuddihy, President Donall Gannon, vice-captain Aaron Higgs and Paula Cuddihy are pictured wearing the special jerseys that Greystones will don for Saturday's AIB League Division 2 clash with Clonakilty
This Saturday afternoon sees Clonakilty making the journey to Dr. Hickey Park for a vital AIB League Division 2 encounter with Greystones.
It will be a special occasion for Greystones with the game receipts and an auction of 30 specally-designed jerseys being worn by the 'Stones players in the match, which will be auctioned afterwards in aid of the Wicklow Hospice Foundation.
The Foundation are hoping to raise €3 million over the next three years having secured a 2-acre site at Marrahmore, south of Brittas Bay, generously donated by the Columban Sisters and Greystones are delighted to be able to contribute in some small measure to this.
The Chairman of the Foundation is local doctor Brendan Cuddihy, who was for many years (and indeed still looks after many of the players) the Greystones RFC Honorary Club Doctor. Brendan was most grateful to Greystones for their generous gesture.
He and his colleagues Dessie O'Toole and Tom Fortune, along with oher members of the foundation, will be in attendance on Saturday for what is hoped is a succesful occasion both on and off the field.
Greystones would also like to thank MSL for their matchday sponsorship, and OB Sport who designed and kindly donated the playing jerseys.
