Fiona Coghlan has played 85 times for the Ireland Women’s rugby team and was captain of the successful 6 Nations winning team in 2013. Her team made history in 2014 when they defeated the All Blacks at the Women’s World Cup in 2014.
Darragh O Sé played in 81 championship matches for Kerry, a GAA record and is regarded as one of the greatest mid-fielders of all time. He has six All Ireland title medals and retired from the game in 2010.
The event at the Palace grounds is taking place in a giant marquee in the club carpark and catering will be by the Yellow Door. Dress code is smart casual.
Local businesses are being encouraged to support the event after work with the drinks reception commencing at 5.30pm along with photograph opportunities with the various speakers.
