The price is €25 per player with a €10 spectator fee.

There will be entertainment for children, a BBQ and a raffle on the day.

Aoife was celebrating her 21st birthday on the night of the tragic balcony collapse and remains in a critical condition in California with serious head injuries.

All the money raised from the Fun-Raiser Tag Rugby & Family fun day will go towards Aoife's medical costs.
