Last Saturday week over 170 members and friends joined President Kieran Mulligan for the Inaugural Lansdowne FC President’s Charity Day starting with the Garryowen prematch lunch. The generosity of those attending and many other members who donated helped us raise c.€20,000 for local Charities and this includes €3,350 raised via a ‘DONATE’ button circulated to the membership.

Kieran’s mantra for his term as President of Lansdowne FC has always been ‘Best on the pitch, Best off the pitch’ and in regard to the latter, we have raised a total of c.€40,000 from three charity events this season 2018/19 culminating in last Saturday’s Inaugural Lansdowne FC President’s Charity Day.

The afternoon also included the presentation of Cheque to ARC Cancer Support Centre raised at the Ladies Lunch held in October and hosted by our own the late Tash Mulligan.

The €40,000 will be spread between the following local charities:

*IRFU CHARITABLE TRUST-€1K (raised by the U12’s)

*ARC CANCER SUPPORT CENTRE MERRION ROAD-€11,000

*RDRD-RINGSEND & DISTRICT RESPONSE TO DRUGS-€7,000

*NEWS FOUR COMMUNITY EMPLOYMENT SCHEME-€7,000

*RICC-RINGSEND & IRISHTOWN COMMUNITY CENTRE-€7,000

*ST ANDREWS RESOURCE CENTRE PEARSE ST-€7,000

Lansdowne are committed to raising money for local Charities within the community where we play our Rugby and we thank all our members for their support!
