THE RECENT exhibition fixture involving Treaty United and a Limerick District League (LDL) XI at Jackman Park raised monies for local charities.
During the interval in the weekend’s Tuohy Cup Final (won by Pike Rovers at the expense of Aisling Annacotty), LDL presented cheques of €1,000 each to Milford Hospice and the local branch of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association.
“We are only too willing to play our part in such support,” commented Noel Dunphy, LDL. “The fixture itself was held to mark the 50th anniversary of the opening of Jackman Park, and those in attendance were generous in their support for the two beneficiaries.”
Jackman Park, the home ground the LDL, has been announced as the host venue for the upcoming FAI Junior Cup Final between St. Michael’s AFC of Tipperary and Newmarket Celtic (Clare). It will be held on the afternoon of Saturday, April 29.
Meanwhile, the opening semi-final of the McCarthy Insurance Munster Junior Cup, Ballynanty Rovers against Regional United, has been pencilled-in for Jackman Park on Saturday next (kick-off 6.30pm).
At lunch-time (1pm), the second semi-final, between Fairview Rangers and Newmarket Celtic, will take place at the same venue.
