Remembering Daragh McNally

Community
// 13 Feb 2020
Friday night’s game with Derry City is the first at Oriel Park since 11-year-old Daragh McNally passed away last November.

Dundalk FC, with the support of Daragh’s family, would like to mark the occasion by celebrating Daragh’s life and raising awareness about autism.

On your way into the ground, and again at half-time, you will see a bucket collection in aid of local autistic services. Please, dig deep and empty your pockets. The money raised from the collection will go to two of the places that helped Daragh immensely, the Maria Goretti Centre in Lordship and the autism unit at Realt na Mara Primary School.

During the warm-up, our players will wear blue t-shirts, proudly bearing an image of Daragh in his Dundalk kit, and his parents Paul and Colleen, brother Nathan and little sisters Naoise and Layla will release 60 blue balloons before kick-off to commemorate his life and one of his favourite activities. Nathan will then raise the 2019 champions flag in front of the main stand.

We would ask all of our supporters to make a contribution to #DaraghsDay
