Thu, Mar 23, 2017

The clocks might very well be going forward, but at Eamonn Deacy Park in the coming days, soccer fans will have cause to go back in time as Galway United’s home turf is set to host some of the biggest stars that have ever graced Irish soccer history. when a star-studded Republic of Ireland Masters squad will take on a select Galway Legends outfit on the afternoon of April 8 in an effort to raise funds for grassroots football across the county.

The ROI Masters project was set up in 2013 by Mark O’ Neill and Mick Byrne so that retired players between the ages of 35 and 60 have the opportunity to continue playing the game they love, as well as representing their country – already the not-for-profit body has raised almost €500,000 for various charities.

Speaking ahead of the big fixture, which is expected to draw a huge crowd of supporters Peter Carpenter, one of the event’s key organisers, filled Advertiser Sport in on all the details.
