Jedward back Gilesy in the Walk of Dreams

JEDWARD are the latest stars to back the John Giles Walk of Dreams campaign.

The twins said Giles was their hero and his walk on Sunday is one of the best causes they could support.

"Raising money for the John Giles Foundation is a terrific cause and we back all the walkers 100pc," the Eurovision boys said.

The Walk of Dreams project is campaigning to build stronger clubs, schools and communities throughout Ireland.

And a string of big names have signed on to support the initiative, including Premier League footballer Richard Dunne.

The walk will see more than 1,000 football clubs representing their area walk together and demonstrate the importance of the sport.

Supported by the Herald and Independent it kicks off on Sunday in 14 towns and cities at 3pm. Visit www.johngilesfoundation.com for more details and to register.
