St John of God Services which helps people with intellectual disabilities is
the latest centre to take on the St Pat's Soccer Challenge.
The Saints Scottish striker Alex Williams was on hand in nearby Islandbridge
to launch the six week course and he encouraged all the participants "to
keep practicing and to keep enjoying their football".
Each week the group will be coached by the St Pat's community team with a
focus on a different football skill.
At the final session the group will receive their Challenge certificates as well as an invite to come along and support their local Airtricity team - St Patrick's Athletic FC.
St Patrick's Athletic's next home game is against Dublin rivals Bohemains
and kicks off at 7.45pm on Friday night at Richmond Park and tickets are on
sale from the club shop all week.
