There will also be a commemoration of the 1988/1989 team to win the club’s first County Cup – the first of three since they were founded.
Mountmellick Utd FC was founded 1969/1970 by Bobby Delaney, Mick Bogan and Jim Doyle, to name a few.
The club has gone from strength to strength over the years and has 18 teams registered at present.
Chairman of the club, Tom Christle said: “We’d like to thank all the volunteers, players, coaches, local businesses and the local community for the support we have gotten over the years,” which without, the club “wouldn’t be able to survive”
The night has much in store such as music, awards, history and a lot of craic!
