Today staff and students of the National College of Ireland took part in GOAL's Jersey Day to raise funds for water and sanitation facilities in schools in Kolkata, India.
|Donegal, Dublin, Meath, Manchester United, |
Wicklow, and Doncaster Rovers at GOAL Jersey Day.
We had lots of GAA jerseys, with my own Wicklow jersey attracting quite a bit of attention (and slagging too!). Dublin, Kerry, Tyrone, Tipperary, Donegal, Meath, Cavan, Kildare - were all represented. There were a few rugby jerseys - Ireland, Munster, and Leinster featuring. Soccer also featured strongly - Manchester United and Liverpool were dominant, but I also saw jerseys from Barcelona, Pachuca (Mexico) Wolves, Middlesborough, Doncaster Rovers, and of course my own Preston North End jersey which I wore in the afternoon.
Lot's of us had fun with our jerseys and of course there was a lot of banter and friendly rivalry. A great splash of colour in the office today - we'll have to do it again next year.
In total we raised €292.66 - thanks to all for their generosity for this worthy cause.
