Foróige has secured a national bag pack with Tesco, across all 101 of their stores, on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th of September this year. The bag pack has been organised to help generate funding for our clubs and projects throughout the country. We hope too that the bag packing initiative will also create more awareness of Foróige in Ireland. Please support our bag packers and our cause on these dates and look out for our purple t-shirts and branded buckets! Thank you.
