The family of Karl Heaney are organising a charity football match in his memory on Saturday 18 May at Ballyholland GAC.

Karl died on the A1 dual carriageway on 23 May in 2018 and his family are holding the event to enable them to raise funds for Head Injury Support and Road Safe NI (Newry, Mourne and Down Committee)

Speaking about the event Karls girlfriend Ciara Sands said "As we approach Karl's first anniversary in May we wanted to do something to remember Karl and celebrate all that he was and what he loved. We thought what better way than with a football match and drinks afterwards?! Just what Karl would have wanted!  And of course it would have to have a Marvel theme!"

The Karl Heaney Marvelous Memorial Match will see "Armagh Avengers" take on "Down Defenders" at 5pm on the 18th and it will be followed by music, drinks, raffle and an auction.

Admission is £5 donation at the gate.
