Next Saturday night (February 9) promises to be a special one in the history of both Edenderry GAA and Derry Rovers FC as the clubs launch their joint fundraising event “Easter Rising” in Byrnes, Edenderry at 9.30pm.

Both clubs have selected players to represent their club in the White Collar Boxing event to be staged in Edenderry GAA on Easter Saturday 30th March. The players selected will be unveiled to the audience on next Saturday night by RTE’s Gaelic Games Correspondent and personality Marty Morrissey. Marty will also act as MC on the night of the “Easter Rising”

Edenderry GAA are also using the event to announce their 2012 Adult Football & Hurling Award winners, who will receive their awards from Marty Morrissey also. Music will also be provided on the night by well known local musician Shane Hynes.

The players have been in training for the past two weeks and are eager to put on a show on March 30th however we can expect the usual pre-fight shenanigans when the boxers from Derry Rovers FC and Edenderry GAA come face to face next Saturday night at the launch. Who knows Marty may even have to break up a scuffle!

Boxers from both clubs are currently looking for sponsorship in an effort to raise funds for their respective clubs. Both Derry Rovers FC and Edenderry GAA are very grateful to everyone who has sponsored the boxers already.

Tickets for the “Easter Rising” will go on sale soon and full details will be published in the coming weeks of where and when tickets can be purchased.
