City players have been in and around some local primary school over the last few weeks.
Firstly, City have teamed up with The Ryan McBride Foundation to visit schools on the Thursday before home games to talk about Ryan’s legacy, the club and to give the kids a chance to grill the players. We’ll also be giving out tickets to the games.
Before the UCD game we went to St. Patrick’s Pennyburn where Ciaron Harkin, Conor McDermott, Barry McNamee and Patrick McClean attended and were shown how to floss. 😅

This week, Derry City’s Nathan Gartside, Gerardo Bruna and Shannon Dunne paid a visit to Good Shepherd School in the Waterside on Friday morning before leaving for the clash with Bohemians at Dalymount Park.
Ronan O’Donnell has been overseeing a 6-week coaching programme at the school which finished this morning with a penalty shoot-out against Nathan.
The club would like to thank pupils and staff at Good Shepherd and St. Patrick’s Pennyburn for their efforts and look forward to seeing them at the Brandywell in the coming weeks and months.
