Mullingar Athletic will host the very first international football game in Mullingar on Wednesday February 11 when the Republic of Ireland face Latvia after the day’s opening fixture of Belgium and Lithuania. The selection of Mullingar Athletic as one of three venues for this event - the others being Tullamore and Athlone Town Stadium - is a huge honour for club and plans are well underway to make the event a memorable occasion for the club and Mullingar. We ask all those wishing to attend to note the following:
Entry to all the 2009 u15 International Tournament is free of charge (see fixtures below ) for all wishing to attend and we hope to see all our members and supporters on the day. A free bus service will operate on the day to transport people to and from the games as parking at the club grounds will be restricted due to the large numbers expected to attend from around the greater Midlands area and indeed further afield.
The bus service will allow people to park in predesignated areas thus avoiding parking difficulties at the club grounds. The schedule and pick up points will begin as follows with continual service all afternoon every half hour and evening to accommodate both games:
Departing Mullingar Park Hotel 2.15pm; St Paul’s Church 2.20pm; Mullingar Community College 2.25pm; Ballinderry Hospital 2.30pm.
For any further details regarding the bus service please contact Eddie Tynan on (086 ) 2326354.
