Fans Museum Memorial Garden Open For All

We are preparing to open our Memorial Garden and what better a way than to pay respect to Dean Matthews, dedicated local photographer, and Richie Jordan, a loved local footballer. This garden is a space to reflect on those lost and the positivity they brought. The founder of the fans museum, Michael Ganley, said:

“We want people to come down, pick up a stone and create a memory of their loved one. If they can’t come down, we will create a template online so people can fill it in with their design and we will paint it for them.”

“We have already had a gentleman from Australia asking if he can do that and we’ve had fans from across the country in touch.”

“This is what we are all about.”

The Garden is a place of respect, open to everyone who has lost someone, no matter the distance. If you wish to include a loved one, please contact the fans museum and for more information, click the link bellow:
