An afternoon of footy, BBQ and new friendships

The boys from the Clontarf Foundation Senior A Football Team extended the hand of friendship to Interchange customers this week, with an invitation to watch a home game and join them for a BBQ dinner afterwards.

The event provided a fantastic oppotunity for customers to form new friendships, based on a shared love of football and the outdoors (and BBQ!).
