Sligo Rovers welcomed young Rory Gallagher to the Showgrounds on Tuesday, and even presented the two-year-old with his very own Sligo Rovers shirt.
He and his mum, Shauna, were welcomed by Sligo Rovers players and staff. The fund, which was set up to pay for a life-changing operation for Rory, is one of the designated charities for Sligo Rovers in 2015.
Rory and his family came after training on Tuesday to meet manager Owen Heary and the Sligo Rovers squad.
They will be special guests for this Friday’s game with Bray Wanderers at the Showgrounds at 5:45pm. This Saturday at 11:30pm they will be holding a fancy dress night in the Velvet Rooms night club with Sligo mascot Benny the Bull scheduled to appear. And Sligo Rovers players are also supporting a text fundraiser for Rory. People can text the word FEET to 57802 to donate €2 to the fund.
