Tir Chonaill Harps junior footballers in Glasgow were joined by three special guests this week for training.
Olympic bronze medallist Paddy Barnes and fellow Belfast boxes Sean McComb and Tyrone McKenna were with the Harps.
Barnes is currently filming with TG4 on his journey to learn to speak Irish, so he came to learn some phrases we would use playing football and all three boxers joined in on training.
“TG4 have been wonderful in helping raise the profile of the Club and we can’t wait to see the latest coverage,” Tir Chonaill Harps said.
Tir Chonaill Harps notes
We would also like to Congratulate Our New Club Secretary Seana Gallagher and Retired player Kevin Porter, who completed a 3 day Charity trek in the arctic for the Tommy burns Skin Cancer Trust and Bloodwise.
Kevin made it an extra special trip by popping the question on the Finish line. Seana thought she was only doing was doing charity work for 3 days but she’s now having to do it for the rest of her life!
Everyone at the Club wishes the future Mr and Mrs Porter all the happiness in the world
