Patrons' Stand OPEN!
The official opening of the Patrons' Stand took place in Richmond Park on Saturday afternoon as members of the Saints' squad and fans came together to mark the occasion.
Pictures from the event taken by Darragh Connolly can be found the Saints' official facebook account.
Speaking at the event, St Patrick's Athletic Club President Phil Mooney commended the support of the Patrons who have helped fund projects such as the renovation of the club's Media and Hospitality Room, provide heart monitoring equipment for the players, funded full playing and training gear for the club's U19 squad, as well as the most recent project, the refurbishment of the Patrons' Stand.
"The Patrons have helped make this marvelous improvement to the stand here, and the club is really, really grateful for that," Mooney said to the crowd present.
Saints' manager Liam Buckley further echoed the thoughts of the club's President by explaining the benefits of the equipment that the Patrons have helped provide, before praising the support the first team have received this season.
"I'd to thank you all [Fans and Patrons] for your support. Since the start of the season it's been terrific, so on behalf of the lads I'd like to thank you all and look forward to seeing over the rest of the season."
Saint Patrick's Athletic would like to thank all who attended the event, and the continued support of the Patron Saints and all fans of the club.
