Club Colours Flown In Uganda

Sligo RFC were delighted to be make a donation of some jerseys and sports gear to Sligo GAA star, Dara McGarty, for presentation to the students of St. Jude’s Children’s Home in Northern Uganda,when Dara visited there as a volunteer in January. Many of the students in St. Jude’s are orphaned, as a result of strife and unrest in that part of Uganda.

Dara organised a football tournament at the school, and reportedly,the team in the Sligo RFC colours did the club and the jersey proud, without achieving ultimate success. On a personal basis, our President, Tom Gilligan, wishes to congratulate Dara on his idealism and humanitarianism, and wishes him well in his new position as National Development Officer for the Gaelic Players Association, which he has just taken up.
