Bohemians extend deadline on Christy Dignam jersey orders as €100,000 raised for hospice

Bohs have extended the deadline for ordering its popular Christy Dignam tribute jersey.

The football club launched the jersey last week to much acclaim. Bohs players wore the touching tribute to Christy Dignam at Dalymount Park on Friday in their 2-2 draw with league leaders Shamrock Rovers.

The jersey is also available for order as part of a charitable campaign for St Francis Hospice. Customers initially had until yesterday to buy the unique item but the deadline has now been extended until midnight Monday.

A spokesperson for the football club said: "With in excess of €100,000 already raised for St Francis Hospice before Sunday's original deadline to pre-order the one-off Bohemians Christy Dignam jersey passed, we have decided to extend sales by 24 hours to give supporters one final chance to purchase."

Christy's daughter Kiera Dignam was in attendance at Friday's game in Dalymount Park. The musician performed a powerful rendition of "Crazy World" as a tribute to her late father.

The Aslan legend was a keen League of Ireland supporter during his lifetime. People can shop the customised jersey online, with items expected to ship within five weeks.
