On Saturday next, Achill Rovers will celebrate the achievements of the 1998 team who won the Mayo League for the first and only time in the history of the club with a star studded charity match against the Shamrock Rovers Legends team.
The team is made up of retired football players, many of whom played in the English Premier League and English Football League during their careers. Achill Rovers would like to invite all players past and present to come along and bring their football boots for this once off opportunity.
Proceeds from the game are going towards Achill RNLI. Kick off is at 3pm in Fr. O'Brien Park.
