Speaking about the upcoming McGettigan’s event, McAteer said: “I'm excited to get back to Ireland for a few days to chat about the summer of football we have

ahead. I'll be hitting Letterkenny and stopping off at the Aviva stadium in Dublin with the FAI for Ireland v Holland on May 27.

“Our supporters are aware that we will go through a five week period with no home games during the summer

so it is vital we all come together and ensure our fundraising events are a big success.”
