Leinster Senior League Skerries Town will host Bohemians in a tribute game in honour of fan Oran Tully on Saturday evening.

Oran, who was a fan of both his native Skerries and Bohemians, was a regular in the stands at Dalymount Park as well as a media tribune, where he reported on Youtube as the ‘Ginger Mourinho.’

He passed away at the age of 19 last summer following a long battle with an extremely rare bowel condition but retained his passion for Skerries, Bohs and Chelsea throughout his life.

All proceeds from the game will go to Skerries Youth Support Services and the Bohemian Trust, both of which do a great deal of work in their local communities.

The game kicks off at 5pm at Skerries’ home ground of Park Lane in the north County Dublin town. Tickets are €10 for an adult and €5 for a child, with one child admitted free with each adult.
