Fair play to all involved...
Shelbourne and some former League of Ireland legends came together to help raise funds for a very special supporter of the Dublin club, Cian Byrne.
Cian, who was born in June last year, was diagnosed with a very rare genetic disorder called Cri Du Chat which only has 15 reported cases in the whole of Ireland.
The Shels fan, he is the a nephew of the clubs former chief executive Ollie Byrne, has also been diagnosed with Partial Down Syndrome and the combination of the two means that he is unable to maintain his own airways and hasn't developed the ability to swallow.
It seems that Cian has lots of friends in the League of Ireland community though and they all came out to help raise funds for his 24 hours care.
The Shelbourne team features many of the players that played in that famous qualifier against Deportivo like; Owen Heary, Ollie Cahill, Stewie Byrne and manager Pat Fenlon.
The match yesterday caps a memorable few days for Cian after he was made mascot for Shels 2-0 win against Cobh on Friday night also.
