Stephen O Donnell: Dundalk FC Captain Stephen has been an integral part of the Dundalk renaissance in recent years and has won a total of 6 league titles in 13 League of Ireland seasons.

Conor McManus (DkIT graduate): Conor has developed in to one of the most dangerous forwards in the game of gaelic games. He was an integral part of the Monaghan squads that won two ulster championships and his performances have been rewarded with 3 All stars.

 The proceeds from the forum will go towards the teams trip to Mallow, where they will fight to win the semi-final.
