City Edition - Issue 1 Preview!
The 2021 season is finally ready to kick off and our official matchday programme, City Edition, is back and bursting with great content for our season-opening match against Cobh Ramblers. We marked the passing of long-serving City volunteer Finbarr O'Shea on the redesigned cover of the programme and a page of memories from the likes of City poet Tony Tobin, and former manager John Caulfield, looking back at Finbarr's contributions to the club. Colin Healy and the FORAS board of management give their thoughts ahead of the game in From the Dugout and From the Boardroom while Shane O'Donovan gives us an inside look at tonight's opposition. Corky is back and tonight's virtual mascot, Ben Kelleher, is profiled! Steven Beattie gives his most in-depth interview since his return to City, opening up about his time in the US, his impressions of last season, and tells us about how he'd like to finish his career. It's an interview not to be missed!
