On Saturday, July 25, the West Cork village of Drinagh will host a team of Liverpool Legends. The visitors take on a team of Drinagh’s own legends at Canon Crowley Park at 3pm.

This exciting event has been organised by Drinagh Rangers AFC in conjunction with David Hall and Ronnie Whelan. Some of the Drinagh Legends are returning from homes around the world to play in this epic match. This is your chance to see Ronnie Whelan, John Aldridge, Ray Houghton, Jason McAteer, Phil Babb, Garry Gilespie, Jimmy Carter and Mike Marsh (more to be announced) in action once again on the playing field.

Tickets are limited and are priced at €20 per adult and €5 for Under 16s (must be accompanied by an adult). Tickets are on sale in Clonakilty at Scallys and Mick Finns; Bandon at Calahane’s Filling Station; Drimoleague at Collins Centra; Skibbereen at Fusion-Home Interiors and Drinagh Co-Op; Dunmanway at Healy’s Supervalu and D-Oil Filling Station; Cork City at Nevada Bobs Golf; Drinagh at The Gaelic Bar, Drinagh Post Office, O’Donovan’s Bar and Sam’s Supermarket.  Tickets can also be purchased on line at www.eventbrite.com

On Friday, July 24 there will be a golf classic in Skibbereen Golf Club where teams can enter a 3BBB team or a 4 Ball Alliance with a Liverpool legend (limited availability). On Saturday morning, some of the Liverpool Legends have expressed an interest in throwing a bowl, so the local Bowling Club are organising an exhibition where the Legends can try out their skills.

Cancer Connect is the chosen charity for this event.  This wonderful charity provides transport for people attending CUH for cancer treatment. A full programme of events and more information can be found on www.facebook.com/drinaghrangers or follow the club on twitter@Drinaghfc.
