Limerick Mental Health Association Teams up with Limerick supporters club

Limerick Mental Health Association is proud to announce that we have teamed up with Limerick Spurs supporters club .

The Limerick Spurs supporters club, who follow London football team Tottenham Hotspur, have agreed to link up with the Limerick Mental Health Association for the coming season.

An idea constructed by the club’s chairman Paddy Hartnett, the members of the supporters group will proudly display our logo on their new shirts and carry out fundraiser’s for our organisation. With soccer being one of the most watched sports in the world, we hope that this will allow our organisation to be discovered by even more people. 

“I’m trying to use Limerick/Spurs as an avenue to get this out to other people. If people need to talk, there are always services there. And I’m always here to talk if anyone wants to ring,”-Paddy Hartnett

“When people can come together to support a team, they all love together, it creates a feeling of camaraderie and community. That’s so important. For some people, it may be hard to get involved in groups. But a love of soccer, a love of a team sport, and the love of a team can really bring people together.”- Claire Flynn our project manager

About the supporters club

  • The Limerick Spurs supporters club is one of the more active among the North London side’s army of fan organisations.
  • Last year, it made Ella Markham, who was cruelly bullied online by trolls, an honorary member.
  • In normal times, they would meet up to watch games in the Still House Bar in Thomas Street, although with lockdown, this has not been possible.
  • The group arranges a number of visits to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium each season.​

New members are always welcome.
