Students at Coláiste Na Hinse in Laytown are to take part in a 5a side soccer marathon this Thursday and Friday to raise funds for the National Council Of The Blind in Ireland.

In a bid to illustrate the difficulties faced by people who are visually impaired they will play some of the games blindfolded.

They have set up a Go Fund Me page to accept donations.
