A cursory look at the donations page on our Branch Website, shows the enormous goodwill from Branch members, as well as friends of the Branch which I personally find staggering. All monies donated are spent on projects and causes initiated by you the membership. A very generous Hibees Bounce reader has donated a fabulous ‘Captain’s Glory’ print being auctioned off there, with instructions that proceeds raised, should be split equally between the Bounce, Section 43 and our very own St. Patrick’s Branch. An equally generous offer of matching whatever is raised for the Branch, is posted too by one of our members.

Thank you ’emerald green’.

This unique print, shows 3 former Hibernian Captains’ holding aloft and celebrating League Cup triumphs in 1972, 1991 & 2007. (The print is part of a limited edition of which there were just 250 signed copies made). It is professionally framed, in a classic black frame with a chrome edge and comes double mounted.  It comes complete with photo proof of the actual signing on a signed certificate of authenticity.
