Taking place in Salthill Park on Saturday, June 3, 32 men’s teams and eight women’s teams will battle it out for the FivesForLives title on a day that promises to be plenty of fun for all the family.

The organising committee has been overwhelmed by the response of the Galway business community and the response of Galway people to date.

The event has kindly been sponsored by three main sponsors, David E Menswear, Dough Bros. and Elwood Offices, and the football won’t be the only activity taking place on the day.

A family zone has also been organised which will have live music from 12.30-4pm, two food trucks, a coffee and ice-cream stand, a face painter, a balloon maker, a sweet shop and guest appearances from Mickey Mouse, Olaf, Spiderman characters and Eddie the Eagle, the much-loved Connacht Rugby mascot.

There will also be a memory wall, on which the public can write or mark a memory for loved ones who have lost their lives by suicide and there will be a minute’s silence held before the final.

All income received on the day, including money made from the sweet shop, face painter, balloon makers and the food trucks will all go towards Pieta House, who will be represented on the day.

All in all, it promises to be a great day out and hopefully there will be plenty raised for such a worthy cause; for more information, check out @FFLGalway and Twitter and FivesForLives on Facebook.
