On Saturday last,
the greats of St. Croans and Glinsk/Creggs football came out of retirement and
donned their football gear to raise money for the Maria Watt Birmingham Fund.
Maria Watt, aged 17 lost her battle with leukaemia in July 2005 and her family,
who have connections with Glinsk, established the foundation, which provides
support for patients with childhood and teenage leukaemia. Local Garda Tom
Cunningham was the principle organiser of the event and a substantial amount of
money was raised thanks to the generosity of those who attended the event. It
was a game of two halves. Glinsk were convincing winners. Thanks to all who
supported the event and Garvey’s for providing refreshments after the game.
