Dear Alumni, Parents, Family and Friends, 
I am proud to announce that our very own Friars Football will be participating in the Global Ireland Football Tournament (GIFT) 2023, an integral part of the Aer Lingus College Football Classic featuring the University of Notre Dame and the United States Naval Academy.  Our game is scheduled for Friday, August 25 in Energia Park, home to the historic Leinster Rugby Club.  We are extremely proud of our players and what they accomplished this past year and look forward to bringing home a win from Ireland. 
I am proud to partner with Global Football for this student-athlete experience.  I am most grateful for the many alumni and friends who have contributed over $100,000 so far to make this trip happen.  There is still quite more that has to be done by this committee and we are very grateful for their hard work.  To make a gift directly to this effort, please click here.  
We have been working with former Notre Dame quarterback Patrick Steenberge, the founder and president of Global Football, a visionary company that arranges for high schools and small colleges around the United States to compete internationally, to make this possible.  
God Bless and I hope to see you in Ireland,
John E. Cooke, Ed.D.
President, Monsignor Bonner & Archbishop Prendergast Catholic High School
