Last week was an exciting one in Bedford Row. Firstly, as we said in the last news post, the CEO of FAI John Delaney visited our Project on Tue 4 Mar 14 and was keen to hear, (among an audience of 50-60), the nuts and bolts of how we work with families and children. We were all delighted when he presented us with tickets for the Ireland-Serbia Match in the Aviva Stadium the following day. The trip to the match with children, parents, and staff was a very exciting and rewarding event, right from the lovely food prior to departure in Bedford Row to the arrival home of sleepy children (and sleepier adults)! at 2 a.m. the following morning. John met us prior to the match once again and in a lovely gesture presented the children with Ireland jerseys. Unfortunately the result did not really go our way – but this was not a great disappointment as we were all so excited with the night anyway…. So – a big thanks to Declan Considine our coach, Tom O’Shea the Regional Manager of FAI, and John Delaney for enabling all this to happen.
