Game on for 'Palmo Day'

THE first ever 'Palmo Day' will take place on Saturday, November 3 at Kirwan Park.

IT IS hoped the day, aimed at former members of Palmerston FC who played in Clonskeagh &/or Kilternan, will become an annual event in the club's calendar. On the day, the DLSP first team will play Highfield RFC in the Ulster Bank League, adding to the atmosphere of what promises to be a memorable day. Come along and meet old friends!


Ken Verso, son of the late Palmerston and Leinster scrum-half Charlie Verso, will officially present his father's Palmerston FC Honours Scarf from 1946 to the club, which will then be put on display in the players' bar. Paddy Byrne will also present a London Irish jersey to the club, in recognition of his time spent playing for the club.

Also on display will be Stevie Harte's Leinster and Palmerston jerseys, along with Barry O'Connor's Ireland B Jersey, earned on the 1980 tour to South Africa, and memorobilia of the late Tom Hingerty who also played for Leinster.

Palmerston stalwarts including Conn Crowley, Paddy Byrne, Stephen Hingerty, Kevin Tobin, Jim Maher and Tony Morgan have confirmed their attendance at the pre-match lunch. Conor Agnew, Phil Smith, Barry O'Connor, Gerry Doyle, John Reynolds, Stan Bolton, Larry Curran, Victor Agar and Tom McCormack will also be there.
