Charity football event held in Naas in memory of tragic Curragh soldier

The late Cian Mullaly

A football tournament in tribute to a young Bohemians fan will be held next weekend in Naas.

The Dublin Club urged fans to get behind the tribute tournament for Cian Mullally, who sadly passed away last winter.

Cian, from the Caragh area, was a soldier in the Defence Forces based in the Curragh. 

The money raised on the day from the tournament will go to the Samaritans.

"Last November we lost supporter Cian Mullally, aged just 21, to suicide," the Bohemians Club wrote.

"When we enjoy big nights, we remember too those no longer there to share those moments with us.

"Cian is sadly missed by his many young friends and fellow fans at Dalymount Park."

On Saturday June 29, a 5-a-side tournament in Cian's memory will be held in Cian's memory at Naas Sports Centre in aid of the Samaritans.

The Club added: "We hope as many supporters and members can get behind this event as possible."
