The rock band Snow Patrol have been good friends to Thomastown United over the past number of years. They’ve played twice in Thomastown in Murphy’s Bar, and on both occasions, have used the opportunity to stretch the legs and take in a game of soccer against local selections.
In July 2005, they took time out from supporting U2 on their Vertigo tour to play a gig in Murphy’s with proceeds going to our club. The following day, they again displayed their silky skills at United Park – don’t give up the day job lads!!! The band have also been kind enough in the past by sponsoring a set of jerseys for one of our schoolboys teams.
From United Park to Croke Park – just a few weeks later, Snow Patrol open for U2 – June 2005
