Armagh take on Down in Fundraiser

April 29, 2013

Legends from past Armagh and Down teams will take to the playing fields of Burren at 7-30 on Sunday May 26 in aid of the KEEP ‘ER LIT charity.

KEEP ‘ER LIT is a fundraising committee set up to support 42 year old, married with 4 children, Mark McKernan. Mark was diagnosed with a tumour, which was inoperable, locally, necessitating travel to Europe for surgery and treatment, all of which had to be self-funded. Naturally this put a huge financial strain on the family which was further exacerbated when earlier this year Mark was diagnosed with another tumour which required surgery in Germany followed by adjuvant immune therapy. This fundraising committee has been formed by neighbours and friends to help alleviate the financial burden that the operations and continuing treatment has entailed.

The organisers of the Legends football match Martin McQuillan Tel- 00353863071114 or Sean McArdle Tel- 07710977456 are appealing to any past players from both counties to get in touch and join Benny Tierney, Francie Bellew, Oisin McConville who have already pledged their support for the game.

Games like these have always appealed to supporters and are great craic. We hope that you can help us to KEEP ‘ER LIT with your attendance and join in the fun in support of a very worthy cause.
