With over 5,000 people dying in Ireland every year from Sudden Cardiac Death, Mrs. Brown’s Boys and the Football Association of Ireland have teamed up to tackle the issue by introducing heart screening for children and adolescents.

Brendan & Jenny O’Carroll, from Mrs. Brown’s Boys, have shown tremendous passion in not only highlighting this issue but also doing something about it by donating €420,000 over a six-year period to this programme. By establishing the Mrs. Brown’s Boys FAI Heart Care Programme, lives will be saved every year.

The Programme, which will start in January 2019, will provide heart screening for all children & adolescents involved in National League squads – under the guidance of FAI Medical Director, Dr. Alan Byrne.
