Tony McKeown, Director of Granite Marketing, who has devised the event commented “Panel events with sports stars are always popular, however, we wanted to go the extra mile and create something that little bit different. Bringing world-class athletes together to reflect on their careers and give an invaluable insight into team sports in the modern era whilst maintaining a relaxed, fun and engaging environment was top of our priority list.

We have some of the World’s top-level sports stars living in the greater Newry area who regularly perform at the highest level. We were delighted when they agreed to take part and form a very impressive line-up".

Doors open at 7pm and the show kicks off at 8pm sharp. There will be a charity raffle in aid of Road Safe NI to win some fantastic prizes. Tickets are limited to 400 so please book early.
