Local Sport

The launch of the 2018 Robert ‘Foods’ McLoughlin Trophy took place yesterday evening at Goldstar Jewellers.

The event has been organised in memory of local man Robert ‘Foods’ McLoughlin, who died following a road traffic accident outside his home on the Newry Road in October 2017.

The proceeds from this year’s game, which takes place at Oriel Park on Saturday December 22nd at 11am, will go to the Zoe Murphy Appeal.

A draw will take place in McGuinness’ Bar later that night with a signed Republic of Ireland shirt, a signed St Johnstone shirt and Irish Grand National tickets amongst the many raffle prizes.
