Former and current footballers from the four provinces will be taking each other on in a quiz on Wednesday July 15th for Newstalk’s Off the Ball. 

Former Dublin 5 in a row manager Jim Gavin and Kerry legend Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh will host the quiz which is for a good cause. They’re trying to raise awareness for the Dublin Neurological Institute (DNI).

The reason for the quiz is to bring awareness to a raffle the DNI are hosting to help raise badly needed funds. Raffle prizes include a training session for your chosen team with Jim Gavin, plus O’Neills gear for your club, including bibs, balls, jerseys and cones and also a prize of Two All-Ireland football final tickets with accommodation at the luxurious Intercontinental Hotel.

To enter the raffle simply donate €20 to the DNI GoFundMe page, Enter your full name and club and ensure your donation is marked public so it can be seen.

Representing Mayo will be Aidan O’Shea and Cora Staunton. Dublin will have Tomas “Mossy” Quinn and Paddy Andrews. Kerry’s power houses will be Kieran Donaghy and David Moran. While Donegal will be depending on Neil Gallagher and Eamon McGee. The raffle will take place later in the month.

Prof Tim Lynch, Consultant Neurologist at the DNI said, “The DNI is a national service. To see the support we’re getting is amazing. We’re hoping the quiz will be fun and help raise the profile of our raffle so we can raise as much money as possible. We treat some of the most complex and difficult illnesses one can suffer from. This funded by the public’s generosity. We’re hoping that will continue now.”
