Bohemians and Shamrock Rovers sport Christy Dignam jersey in aid of Dublin hospice

Bohemian and Shamrock Rovers players have paid tribute to the late Christy Dignam through a personalised jersey.

Both teams will wear the customised jersey at an upcoming game in Dalymount Park. The item is also available to buy online, with all proceeds going towards St Francis Hospice.

The initiative has gained the support of Christy's family and his fellow Aslan bandmates. A minute's silence will also be held to honour Christy at tomorrow's match.

Bohemian Football Club's COO Daniel Lambert said: "We are delighted to able to announce this one-off jersey in memory of Christy Dignam and hopefully raise a large amount of money for St Francis Hospice. We would like to especially thank Des Kelly Interiors for permitting this change and being so supportive and to O’Neill’s for turning it around in days thanks to their manufacturing capability in Ireland."

The tribute jersey is available for online order until midnight on Sunday. People can expect to get their items within five weeks.
