Visits the sick people in the hospitals in Cork. He visited my mother in the cancer ward not long before she died. Brought a photographer with him and he took pictures with all the patients, spoke to their familys on the patients mobiles, signed autographs. We all have the picture at home in our family homes and he has a smile on him as if he was holding the European Cup. He gave my family a huge lift at a time when we were in despair. We will never forget what he did for our family.

On a less serious note bad WUMs like this have me yearning for a POL or someone with even an ounce of humour or dare I say it, thread starting ability

And that's saying something
you called?

Fair play to the lad. Proof that not all soccer players are kunts.
Guess who reads the Irish Times round up column.

Keane has done plenty for Cork and has put an absolute fortune into the running of the Guide Dogs Centre. He also come back to Cork frequently to support other charities by making "celebrity" appearances. He also does a lot of work for special olympics as well, as im involved in this also, I have first hand experience of the work and time he puts in to these type of things. Not to mention the fact that he is a role model for almost every youngster in Cork if not Ireland.
Feckin pathetic thread to start...!!!!!!!
