Kildare v Mayo NFL Rd 1

Throw-in for Kildare vs. Mayo is at 2pm on Sunday in St. Conleth’s Park Newbridge, with a Club 51 gathering in the Liffey Arms from 12.30pm.

I’ll have two, possibly three free seats, leaving from Rathfarnham around 11.30.

Holler in the comments below if you need a lift. If you bring sweets, I might even lay off the Garth Brooks CDs. Maybe.
