One of our leading players and all-time greats Anthony “Tayto” Tate will be celebrating his 40th birthday on Saturday 19th October. Along with celebrating the big FOUR ZERO Anthony wanted to do something meaningful and worthwhile and has decided to go down a different road and raise money for charity by holding a sponsored beard shave with all proceeds being donated towards two charities, namely the Irish Heart Foundation and the Cootehill Community Cancer Support Group. Along with Anthony, three other brave men, Dwayne Rooney, Martin Carroll and Aidan Sheridan have decided to take the plunge and not shave for the next five weeks and they will get their mighty whiskers shaved all for name of charity. Personally, I think this is a really fantastic gesture and I would urge everyone, including family and friends, to get behind this wonderful idea and support the lads. They all have sponsored cards and you will also see sponsored cards in local shops and pubs so please donate whatever you can afford they would really appreciate your support.
