The Primary Schools 5s Programme is the largest of its kind in Ireland with over 30,000 boys and girls from all over the country hoping to reach the National Finals at the Aviva Stadium at the end of May. Only six schools will progress past Thursday’s final to the provincial decider next month.
“As a community-based retailer, SPAR encourages a healthy and active lifestyle and is proud to be a supporter of primary schools’ soccer in association with the FAI,” said Spar’s Colin Donnelly.
“SPAR local retailers in Limerick have been supporting the programme for four years, which encourages children to enjoy the benefits of exercise in a fun, safe and inclusive environment.”
