Killa all set for World’s Greatest Shave!


Neil Kilkenny is for the chop!

Glory’s midfield general is set to take part in the World’s Greatest Shave 2019 to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation after Andy Keogh and Shane Lowry began the club’s involvement last year.

The Glory players were inspired to participate by the incredible bravery of Hunter Madden who was diagnosed with leukaemia two years ago aged three and whose ongoing battle with the illness culminated in a bone marrow transplant earlier this year.

As a father of three young children himself, Kilkenny has been particularly moved by Hunter’s story and is keen to raise as much money and awareness as possible via the World’s Greatest Shave.

“It’s an absolutely fantastic cause,” he said, “and I would urge everyone to do whatever they can to help, whether that’s by sponsoring me, making a donation, or just increasing awareness of the vital work that the Leukaemia Foundation does to help those battling the illness.”
