The cast of RTE’s Fair City will settle their score with Baldoyle United tomorrow in a sell-out game being dubbed the “grudge match of the century”.
A controversial incident occurred in the RTE flagship soap back in September, when characters Damien and Wayne lamented losing a penalty shootout to the North Dublin club after the goalkeeper moved off his line.
Damien has been wandering around the fictitious Dublin suburb trying to convince anyone and everyone that the Baldoyle goalkeeper moved – an accusation not taken too kindly by the club.
And now the Carrigstown Crusaders will come off the screen and onto the pitch for real tomorrow afternoon at the club’s Brookstone Road base.
George McMahon (Mondo), Maclean Burke (Damien), Ryan Andrews (Sean), Johnny Ward (Ciaran), Sorcha Furlong (Orla), and Rachel Pilkington (Jane) are all confirmed to be taking to the field for the Crusaders.
Tickets for the ‘rematch’ are all sold out, and the money raised will go towards helping both the club and St Michael’s House, a charity that helps adults and children with intellectual disabilities.
