Fran honoured by Erin's Isle and O'Dwyer's

CRY Ireland co-founder Michael Greene was present to celebrate Fran's Day with Erin's Isle and O'Dwyer's in Finglas on Sunday.

Fran Leonard was playing for Isles against O'Dwyer's in division 4 of the AFL when he died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome in November, 2006.

Each year, the two clubs come together to celebrate Fran's life with games involving the U10's and adult sides

Fran's family were the first to be screened by CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Youth - shortly after Fran's death.

The Screening Centre is very active now in saving and changing the lives of families at risk.

This year, over 1,600 people will be screened. The Centre is funded by voluntary contributions.
