Cork City FC has confirmed that they will continue to support The Crann Centre as its charity partner in 2024 at a ceremony to celebrate the club’s 40th anniversary. 

The club made the announcement as it presented Crann with a cheque for €25,000, the proceeds of its fundraising efforts in 2023. This included collections from matches in Turner’s Cross and support throughout our annual Walk n’Roll event. 

As part of the continuing collaboration, Cork City FC is now producing their podcast, called The Rebel Army Podcast, from the podcast studio here at Crann. 

Dermot Usher, owner of Cork City FC said; “The Crann Centre provides so much support to families across Cork and the Munster region and we are honoured to be able to assist them in whatever way we can.  We had a successful partnership in 2023 and we look forward to working with them again this year.”

Padraig Mallon of The Crann Centre said; “We rely on public donations and the support of local businesses in order to maintain the levels of services and supports which we provide to children, adults and families. We are delighted to continue our partnership with Cork City FC in 2024 and we are very appreciative of the support we’ve received from the club to date. The whole team at Cork City, on and off the pitch. have been so great to deal with, it’s a true partnership.”
