Keane and Butt to host talk

Manchester United legends Roy Keane and Nicky Butt will recount their playing careers and discuss the big talking points in English and international football at the Silverspring Moran Hotel Convention Centre in Cork on Saturday evening (7pm).

Tickets cost €25 with monies raised helping to develop facilities at Keane’s home club Rockmount AFC.

Rockmount AFC spokesman Billy Cronin explained: “With less money coming in from grants we are trying to raise funds to finish the clubhouse and work on our pitches.

“We approached Roy and as always he never let us down. He said he’d come over and bring Nicky along with him. It should be a good night. Everything will be open for discussion and the lads will be taking questions from the floor.”
