Vincent Whelan is organising an indoor football tournament to raise funds for Jigsaw, The National Centre for Youth Mental Health, to highlight youth mental health and suicide. The event is set to take place on Sunday, August 27th at 10am at the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght.

I want to be able to help anyway possible with the prevention of suicide. Football is a great way of bringing people together and with having so many high profile people in attendance on the day of the event it shows we all want to help and reach out to people who need reaching out to.”

    Nicky Hilariously Corrects His Instagram Post

    After today’s Official Opening of new Sports Direct Megastore, Nicky shared a very cool video of him and Republic of Ireland manager, Martin O’Neill.

    Notice how he spelled “Baldoyke” instead of “baldoyle“? He decided to film a video clarifying what he meant to say. Too funny! (wait till the very end)

    Just to clarify ! 🙈👍🏻😎
