73,000 fans give Roy Keane a huge send off at Old Trafford.

Five hundred and forty red and green die-hard Roy Keane fans queue to travel on charter flights from Cork Airport to Manchester for Keane's testimonial game between Manchester United and Celtic.

Travelling with the Cork contingent to see their friend in action are Club Chairman John Delea of Rockmount AFC (Roy's Junior Club), Kieran O'Sullivan and James Corcoran. They have travelled to see Roy Keane play every Easter for the past fifteen years but this trip will be different.

It's our opportunity to say goodbye to Roy for the last fifteen years.

A further fifteen thousand fans are expected to travel from Ireland to Manchester for the sell out testimonial at Old Trafford.
