Here's the news, Giles walk of dreams is back

FOOTBALL legends Paul McGrath, John Giles and Liam Brady know where to find the best coverage ahead of Euro 2012.

Arguably the three greatest ever players to pull on a green jersey and much-loved broadcaster Bill O'Herlihy tucked into their Heralds as they launched the John Giles Walk of Dreams fundraiser on May 7, supported by 3 Mobile.

The fundraiser will take place at 20 locations across the country as the organisers look to surpass the €360,000 raised during the inaugural event last year.

This year will involve five new locations, with the money going back into the grassroots of club football and community projects involving the game.

Half of last year's total went to clubs with the other half going out to charitable grants, and Herald football columnist John Giles is hoping to raise a huge amount in 2012.

"Obviously, the more we raise, the more goes out.

"We got a good response last year so, fingers crossed, we get a better response this year," John said.
