The Fureys relaunch ‘Our Games’ ahead of All Ireland 2019 Championship to raise money for Sick Children

Irish music legends, The Fureys, renowned for their hit songs ‘When you were sweet 16’, ‘The Green fields of France’, and ‘From Clare to here’, will update and relaunch their song ‘Our Games’ ahead of the GAA All Ireland 2019 on Friday the 26th April. Proceeds from the downloads will go to CMRF Crumlin who raise vital funds for Crumlin Hospital and the National Children’s Research Centre (NCRC).

Former RTÉ sports presenter, the late Brendan O’Reilly wrote the song back in 1991 and asked the Fureys if they would record it. They sang it in Croke Park at half time during that year’s All Ireland football final between Down and Meath. They have re-recorded it for the 2019 season including additional commentary from Marty Morrissey on the recording,

“We are overwhelmed by this kind gesture.” Mary O’Donovan, Fundraising Director at CMRF Crumlin said. “We are so thankful to The Fureys and to Marty Morrisey for their time and energy in this project. All of the funds raised from the downloads will go directly to CMRF Crumlin and will help support the 150,000 children who walk through the doors of Crumlin hospital every year, by providing vital funding into paediatric research, lifesaving equipment, and wraparound services to some of Ireland’s sickest children!”

CMRF Crumlin thank the late Brendan O’Reilly’s wife Johanna Lowry O’Reilly who generously waived all royalties for the recording, Ceol Music who have waived all downloading fees, Abby Dillon from Littlebird Design who created the design of the promotional CD without charge and All Write Media who sponsored and manufactured 300 promotional CDs.

Appeal

Gardai are appealing to dog owners to lock up their dog’s and make sure they are not straying and worrying or killing sheep and lambs. IFA national sheep chairman Sean Dennehy said the family pet can turn into a marauding killer and cause savagery and mayhem on a defenceless sheep flock. “People who take dogs as pets have to take on the responsibility that goes with that. If dog owners saw the destruction from an attack, they would have a very different mindset. Unfortunately, there are too many people who casually take on a family pet, particularly for Christmas, but they are not prepared to devote the time to responsible dog ownership. Dog owners can be held responsible for any losses from attacks on sheep, with serious financial and legal consequences. Farmers have a right to protect their sheep flock and can shoot a dog worrying, or about to worry, their flock’ he said. So all dog owners note that you are to keep your dog under control. Running free, he can be a killer.
