The event, hosted by the Irish FA, saw hundreds of young footballers flock to Camlough’s grounds to enjoy the football on show and provide attending clubs with the opportunity to recruit new players and volunteers for the new season. Pat had the opportunity to meet with clubs and players, take part in coaching sessions and pose for photographs at the event, which featured a tournament and drop in football sessions. Pat Jennings, McDonald’s Head of Northern Ireland Football said, “It’s great to be back home in Newry and getting the opportunity to encourage young people to get involved in community football. McDonald’s provides great support to clubs across Northern Ireland, enabling thousands of young players to get their first taste of football. “These Community Football Days are designed to really showcase the amazing work local clubs do throughout the year, and also offer the perfect opportunity for anyone in the local community to get involved and have a kickabout.” McDonald’s Newry franchisee, Stephen O’Hara, was in attendance at the day and said, “The Irish FA Community Football days are a wonderful opportunity for local clubs to get involved in a really fun day that everyone can enjoy. Grassroots football is so important to this local community and it was fantastic to see so many players take part.”
