Following on from the huge support ex-Derry City striker Mark Farren has received through donations as well as last night’s game between a Derry XI and a Glenavon XI, news is spreading today that an Irish League XI are to play a League of Ireland XI at the Brandywell. 

A huge sum of money was raised last night at the game in Mourneview Park.

And now, according to the Londonderry Sentinel, a game has been organised between an Irish League XI and a League of Ireland XI.

The Irish League side is to be managed by Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill while the Republic of  Ireland boss Martin O’Neill will take charge of the LOI selection.

The outpouring of support for the striker has been astounding, so far, with close to £34,000 already being donated through Farren’s GoGetFunding campaign, which is supplemented by events such as this. 

The match at the end of this month should draw in even more support for Farren’s cancer treatment however, with stars such as Paddy McCourt, James McClean, Shane Duffy and David Forde set to feature.

The game is to take place at the Brandywell on May 23rd.
