Offaly band's hit is the new official song of the League of Ireland
Offaly band Chasing Abbey will have their hit 'Talk To Me' played at grounds across Ireland this year as it has been announced as the official song of SSE Airtricity League of Ireland 2018 season by the FAI.
The FAI were launching the 2018 season when they made the announcement, saying, "Their song will be played at every league ground. It's great to see a young Irish band doing great work on the international scene, and we welcome the fact they want to engage with the SSE Airtricity League. Now when people hear the song, they'll know what it's for"
Also at the launch of the league on Tuesday, Fran Gavin, FAI Director of Competitions, announced a new youth development fund.
"The fund will add €250,000 to the UEFA Solidarity Funding of €825,062, bringing the total funding for youth development to €1.15 million at a minimum and with the introduction of a National U13 League next season, the future is exciting," he said.
