It was Maudlintown man Nicky Hynes, along with his local barber Nollaig Mac Aodha from Cutthroat, who came up with the idea for the charity football match.
Nicky Hynes’ father passed away on Christmas eve 2014 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s and he has seen first-hand the effects of Alzheimer’s, not only on the person with the diagnosis, but how badly it can affect families.
Nicky said: ‘I can’t thank everyone enough for giving up the time in their busy schedules to support and raise much needed funds and awareness for the Alzheimer Society of Ireland. It means a lot to me and my family.’
