Sean Cox 

Sean, a Clondalkin native, was seriously injured in an unprovoked assault while attending a Champions League semi-final against Roma in Liverpool last year.

The former Round Tower member is undergoing an intensive programme of rehabilitation and will continue to require intensive long-term care and support.

Ahead of the match, collection boxes around Clondalkin village will enable people contribute to the fundraising drive.

Ed O’Malley, Round Tower GAA Club Chairman said: “Sean grew up in Clondalkin and represented the club for many years in a playing capacity and also at executive level.

"He still retains a very close connection with the Clondalkin community, with family still living here. We hold great appreciation for the excellent contribution he made to our club on and off the playing pitches.

"We are very grateful to the family of our late friend Eugene Garrigan who are fully supportive of his second memorial tournament raising funds to support Sean's rehabilitation.

"The match presents opportunity for us as a club and the wider Clondalkin community to show our solidarity with and support for Sean and the Cox family."
