The match is being played as a memorial for Luke Brodigan.

Luke Brodigan, his wife Barbara, and their children, Damien, Vivian and Denise, moved to live in Kilbarrack in the early 1970’s, and like most parents at the time wanted the best educational opportunities and recreational facilities for their children in a new and developing estate and community. He was a member of the Defence Forces at the time and a native of Donore in County Meath. He joined the new Club in the Parish of Kilbarrack -Foxfield, shortly after it was founded by the teachers and parents in the local National Boys School, Scoil Lorcáin (now Scoil Eoin), in 1974. As a former player himself, and lover of Gaelic Games, he knew by getting involved it would encourage and influence his children to play sport.

From the moment he got involved he became a dedicated and committed member of Naomh Barróg. His dedication and loyalty helped it become the Club it is today. His gift of communicating and relating to people was evident when he was Chairman of fundraising committees or when he was acting as MC at our Race Nights, Auction Nights or co-ordinating the opening of Páirc Bharróg in 1984 and the opening of our Club House, along with the Chairman at the time and fellow Meath man, Joe Potter, in 2002. He was at one stage Chairman of the Northeast League that co-ordinated all Juvenile boys’ football and hurling games, from u10 to u16, but most importantly acted as Manager/Mentor of many Naomh Barróg juvenile teams, which was his first love.

Luke Brodigan was highly respected in Naomh Barróg and by the wider GAA community in Dublin and beyond. It’s great to see his son, Vivian Brodigan, and daughter Denise Dunne, now along with their children, his grandchildren, still involved in the Club to the present day.
