Great stuff from both Shamrock Rovers and Drogheda united as they have announced that 50% of the winnings from the upcoming EA Sports Cup Final will go to Gary O'Neill fight against cancer.



In a statement on the Drogheda United website, O'Neill thanked those involved;

I am both touched and sincerely appreciative of the incredible support that I have received and continue to receive since the news of my illness emerged last week. I thank above all everyone at my club Drogheda United for the wonderful medical assistance, the friendship and kindness shown to me and my family during this time. I also wish to thank the PFAI for their support. It was very emotional for me to see all the players in the league wearing t-shirts expressing their good wishes last weekend. My family and I are overwhelmed by the generous gesture of Drogheda United, Shamrock Rovers and John Delaney. When I was diagnosed and discovered that my work would be affected, one of my first thoughts was how I would support my family. I can’t put into words how much it means to us to have that major worry removed at a time when I need all my strength to fight this disease. Thank you to all those I have mentioned and to everyone who is supporting me.


Last week teams (and referees) wore t-shirts in support of Gary
