The John Giles Foundation was set up early 2010 and launched on the “The Late Late Show” on Friday 5th 2010 as part of the celebrations to mark John Giles 70th birthday. The (JGF) Walk of Dreams project is a fundraising initiative to raise funds for the JGF, clubs, schools, various community groups. It is the aspiration of John Giles Foundation that this Walk of Dreams fund raising event and all future organized events will get the backing of the 2600+ clubs of Ireland.

The national launch of John Giles book “A Football Man” took place on the 4th November 2010, as a mark of generosity and commitment to the foundation Mr. Giles has agreed to donate the total sales proceeds to the JGF fund. We wish that each and every football club would have representation on the day, we would hope that all of your players, coaches, supporters, volunteers and people that just wish to show there support for there club and community would walk together under Your Club banner to help us grow the game together.
