A group of five friends in their early 20’s: Brian Kelly, Eoghan Diffley, Emmet Burke, Ciaran McManus, and Conor Murphy, are embarking on an ambitious challenge at the weekend.

Their goal is to kick points in all 32 counties of Ireland, visiting a different club pitch in each county.

The group of young men, including four members from the St Barrys GAA club (Eoghan, Emmet, Ciaran, and Conor), along with Brian Kelly from the Newtown Cashel club in Longford are taking on the challenge to support Conor’s mother, Nicola.

Nicola has recently received a diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease, and the five young men are determined to raise funds for her.

They are expected back at St. Barry’s GAA pitch on Sunday around 4.30pm and everyone is invited to be there to welcome them home.
