The Lions Soccer Club hosted a Festival of Football in Durrow on Sunday July 16th last. The club were visited by FAI Chief Executive John Delaney, President of FAI, and several FAI football Ambassador’s and former international star Ray Houghton. They were very impressed by the work being done by the Lions in promoting soccer in the area and were delighted to see the hundreds of young boys and girls participation in the sport. Mr Delaney thanked Kevin Kelly, Chairman of the Lions and his committee of hardworking, dedicated helpers and coaches and in return promised his help and commitment to improving drainage on the pitch. A great day followed with sports, enjoyment, lovely food and a Gala Barbeque with a presentation of the Club awards for 2016/7.
