Local rivals Clontarf and Raheny, who are separated by St. Anne's Park where their home pitches are both located, are set to continue their rivalry this Saturday May 23rd.
This time however the action is off the páirc as they are challenging each other's members to #GoTheDistance in aid of St. Francis Hospice. Between 8am and 8pm members will be walking, running, cycling and maybe even swimming with the club that goes the furthest winning the challenge.
The challenge started from a Tweet from ClontarfGAAClub on Thursday night that escalated into a charity fundraiser as the gauntlet was thrown down.
Dublin GAA players from both clubs came together with a video to promote the challenge.
Are you ready to #GoTheDistance? The @DubGAAOfficial & @dublinladiesg players of @RahenyGAA & Cluain Tarbh are. Join us next Saturday May 23rd in aid of @SFHDublin https://t.co/Nm3K3Ixx78 #CluainTarbhAbú @loveclontarf_ie pic.twitter.com/pLhRynmKE6— Clontarf GAA Club/CLG Chluain Tarbh (@ClontarfGAAClub) May 16, 2020
