The club said: “The Roads leading to Aaron’s home are quite narrow and will struggle with the volume of traffic anticipated.

“The club will be providing transport from Shamrock Park to the Devlin household

and back to Shamrock Park between 4-00 pm and 10-00 pm .

“We would really appreciate anyone with a six or seven seater if they could make themselves available at sometime during that period.

“The club would also ask any club member or indeed anyone from the community to volunteer their services over the next three days as there is so much help required.”
