Rebels Roar – Support our footballers

Although we can’t be there to cheer the players on physically – we plan on doing so virtually and we need YOU! 

We are asking all Cork schools to WEAR RED this coming Friday in support of the Cork Senior Footballers – who are set to play Tipperary on Sunday in the Munster Senior Football Final.

It couldn’t be easier all we need you to do is;

  1. Wear red this Friday. 
  2. Send in a video/picture of select class group/s showcasing your loudest Rebel Roar. Examples include ‘Up The Rebels’. 
  3. Forward all videos and pictures to pro.cork@gaa.ie 

*The group with the loudest roar will receive a special message from team captain Ian Maguire.
