From local politicians to the parish priest and from life-time supporters to our Summer soccer school kids, a large crowd turned out for the official opening of the new Saints Supertsore on Emmet Road today and the launch of the new away jersey.
Local and national press were in attendance, as well as the 104Fm beetlebugs' crew and the whole event was covered live on West Dublin Community Radio.
St Pat's management team of Pete Mahon and John Gill were there signing posters and jerseys along with first team players like Ryan Guy, David McAllister, Vinny Faherty, Ian Bermingham, James O'Briean and Shane Guthrie.
Saints boss Pete Mahon was delighted to step forward and perform the official function of cutting the ribbon and opening the Saints Supperstore and he wished shop-owner Paul O'Brien every future success.
Commenting on the opening of the Saints Superstore Paul O'Brien said “it was great to see the club staff, players and management coming out in force to help with the launch and their support was much appreciated.
Hopefully the Saints Superstore will become a central point for the local area and will play a key role in the development of the club going forward.
Finally and most importantly I would like to thank the supporters of St Pat's for helping to make the launch day such a success”.
