Alan Kerins projects cause worth supporting

Published 16/02/2013 | 04:00

In November 2011, thanks to the generosity of the GAA, the Alan Kerins Projects played its first Charity Match at Croke Park.

That day, it was Dublin v Galway and a great time was had by all, including yours truly as the opportunity to run on the sacred sward was just too good to be true.

Over €100,000 was raised on that day in support of youth leadership projects in Kaoma and Mongu in Zambia.

The Projects work in partnership with local organisations to identify the most efficient and effective means to address youth disadvantage through education, sport, music and agricultural programmes.

On Thursday, again at HQ, the second Charity Challenge took place when the legends of Kildare and Kerry football took centre stage, supported by celebrities from various walks of life.

Again a substantial sum (in excess of the 2011 total) was raised as, following the presentation of the Alan Kerins trophy (to the victorious Lillywhites), An Taoiseach Enda Kenny was Guest of Honour at a Gala Dinner hosted by Matt Cooper in the Hogan Stand.

A touch of the Jonny Sextons prevented TW from togging out, but just to be involved with so many people committed to this great cause made it good to be Irish and good to be on board.

Anyone wishing to support the Alan Kerins Projects in any way please email info@alankerinsprojects.org or ring Kathryn at 087 6362591.
