Ultimate honour for the two great men of Rossin Rovers, Frank Taaffe and Brendan Reid

The FAI visited Rossin Rovers as part of their Festival of Football celebrations.

The club was joined by FAI Vice-President Noel Fitzroy who unveiled a plaque naming the pitch "Frank Taaffe Park" in honour of the club Secretary and one of the founding members.

Frank has been a player, manager and official since 1984 and the club thanked him for all his efforts in that time.

Richard Dunne and Megan Campbell then unveiled a plaque naming the dressing rooms after Brendan Reid, who has done so much for the club over the years.

Ireland Under 21 Manager Stephen Kenny also attended and gave a great speech.
