GOAL Jersey Day at NCI

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.

  1. This is indeed a noble act. Earning and collecting money for charity purposes are just simply amazing. I have done this one too and I will continue to do it for the benefits of the many unfortunate individuals.
