The Carrickfergus Knights American Football Team would like to invite you to a traditional American Thanksgiving dinner and you cant have Thanksgiving without FOOTBALL! We will be showing two LIVE NFL games kicking off at 5.30pm and 9.30pm on a HUGE 10ft HD screen. We will also be serving a four course Thanksgiving dinner (with a vegetarian option) including PUMPKIN PIE! from 6.30pm.

For reservations and tickets please contact – chairman at carrickfergusknights dot com

Entry for dinner and the games will be £25 for adults, £10 for children under 12, and under 2 is free of charge.

Rooms are available at a discounted rate for those attending the dinner, please make us aware of this when booking tickets.

Dress code is casual, you can even wear NFL jerseys if you have one. There will be competitions and prizes on the night.

We hope to see you all there to celebrate this great American holiday together.

Terry Lynch

terryTerry Lynch was one of those faces you just always expected to see on gameday in the IAFL. He was part of the furniture. If you haven’t been playing long enough to have had the pleasure of battling him in Craigavon’s trenches, you’ve almost certainly had the honour of one or two “professional disagreements” with him in referee stripes.

If nothing else, you’ve very likely been on the receiving end of a big smile, an even bigger handshake and a great sense of humour, and that’s how many will remember him; a warrior on-field and a happy, gentle giant once chinstraps were unsnapped and clocks expired.

The Carrickfergus Knights players, coaches and supporters are massively saddened to hear about the premature passing of one of the Irish American Football League’s veterans and characters, and our love and thoughts are with his team-mates, friends and family today and in the weeks ahead.

Arriving at the field for game day wont be the same without that big grey hoodie sauntering around with a grin and a laugh for everyone.

Rest easy, Cowboy.
