City of Armagh Rugby Club announce line-up for major fundraising dinner

Following on from last year’s successful fundraising event with Ireland coach Joe Schmidt, City of Armagh RFC has just announced the line-up for their Night of Sporting Stars on Saturday, September 15.

Headlining the major fundraising event is Sir AP McCoy, a legend from the world of horse-racing.

The impressive line-up of guests includes Irish rugby hero, John Hayes who was capped 105 times by Ireland.

The Munster born prop went on to star for the British & Irish Lions, playing in the final test on the 2009 tour to South Africa.

GAA All-Star, Tomas O Sé will need little introduction to many, having won five All Ireland Championships with Kerry and an incredible five All Star awards.

Tomas is a regular pundit on RTE television and is looking forward immensely to his visit to Armagh.

Completing the Sporting Stars line-up is local girl Lizzie Colvin who has been making massive headlines in recent weeks with the Ireland hockey team. Lizzie is the sister of City of Armagh Club Captain, Chris Colvin and is now the proud owner of a silver medal from the Hockey World Cup.

The event on September 15 will take the form of a gourmet dinner and dress code is smart casual, with M.C. Adrian Logan interviewing the guests in his mercurial style.

A giant marquee within the Palace Demesne will host the function and 400 guests are expected to attend.

Tickets will be in high demand and are priced at £100 with tables of 10 starting from £1,000.

To secure tickets, contact the club’s senior vice-president, James Scott, telephone 07720 537909 or Junior vice-president, Paul Johnston on 07900 227600.

Club President, Willie Boyd, commented: “Our Joe Schmidt event in 2017 kicked off our development appeal with phenomenal success and we are delighted to secure such a prestigious line-up for our Night of Sporting Stars as we continue our fundraising journey.

“A tremendous night is on the cards and I would encourage everyone to plan to attend for this once in a lifetime line-up of stars in Armagh.”
