All in for footie on in Blarney

Businesses are being invited to step back from the keyboard and take to the field for a five a side soccer tournament which is all in aid of Cork ARC Cancer Support House.

MC2 Accountants have sponsored the tournament, aptly called, 'The Blarney Fives' which will take place on the green in Blarney in June. Sean McSweeney, Partner at MC2 said: "We are excited to sponsor The Blarney Fives and continue the great legacy of soccer tournaments on the square in Blarney. The Blarney Fives promises to deliver a feast of football and fun and we are particularly happy that the profits from the event will benefit Cork ARC who provide a safe haven for people with cancer and their families."

Aileen O'Neill of Cork ARC said: "We are delighted to have been selected by MC2 as their charity partner for the Blarney Fives. The timing is perfect, as we have recently launched a major fundraising drive to help fund our move to Sarsfield House, which will allow us to vastly improve the range and quality of services which we deliver for cancer sufferers and their families and friends."

Sean McSweeney added: "We would like to thank Blarney United without whose help and support, this tournament would not be possible."

The tournament will take place from June 11 to 21. To register a team, log on to The entry fee to participate is €250 per team.
