The National Diabetes Cup 2018

The National Diabetes Cup took place on Saturday, August 25th at the National Sports Campus Abbotstown.


The National Diabetes Cup is a 6 or 7 a side soccer tournament for children aged between  7-15 years living with type 1 diabetes along with their siblings.


This event was an ideal opportunity for parents, guardians ,children, and representatives from Diabetes Ireland to meet each other and have a fun day out. The weather was fantastic and the competition was fierce amongst all the star players.


We met so many futures stars such as Messi, Keane, Salah, the list could go on.


Tess Clinch, Events & Marketing with Diabetes Ireland ” the team pulled out all the stops to make this event so special, the smiles and laughter from everyone brought home how important these types of events are.  This was my first event with Diabetes Ireland and It was such a fun day.”


We would like to thank all the volunteers, staff, parents, guardians,players and siblings for making this event so special. Roll on 2019!!
