Republic of Ireland legends Damien Duff and Robbie Keane joined Noel King and former League of Ireland players, lining up against the Irish Amputee Football Association's International, for a challenge game at the FAI's headquarters in Abbotstown in December. Duff became an ambassador for the IAFA in 2015 and has been helping raise awareness for the sport of Amputee Football in Ireland ever since. Duff has held training sessions with the IAFA squad, attended the first ever EAFF Junior training camp held in Dublin in March 2015 and played a key role in arranging this match. The Irish Amputees got the opportunity to showcase their sport to the former internationals, who even gave the game a go for themselves, using crutches to play the second half. The IAFA would like to extend their warmest appreciation to all those who played on the day, to Robbie, Noel and to Damien whose continued support is invaluable to the association.
