A former Longford Gaelic footballer and Longford town soccer player says he’s delighted to be taking part in Saturday’s homelessness sleep-out in Galway.

Gary Murphy who played inter-county football in Longford, as well as soccer for Longford TOWN, is one of over 400 GAA players across the country taking part in events around the country tomorrow night.
