Christy Dignam's daughter shares heartfelt tribute as €141,487 raised for Dublin hospice

The daughter of the late Aslam star Christy Dignam has said her father’s death is still “so raw” for her family as she revealed the final total raised for a Dublin hospice.

The Crazy World singer died last month aged 63 following a ten-year battle with a rare blood cancer.

Following his death, Bohemian FC released a Christy tribute jersey which they wore against Shamrock Rovers at Dalymount Park and fans were able to purchase the jersey online with the funds going to St Francis Hospice.

The family handed over the cheque for €141,487 to St Francis Hospice on Wednesday.

“Thank you again to Dan and all at Bohemian Football Club for the jersey, Shamrock Rovers F.C. for getting on board and supporting bucket collections, bohs sponsors Des Kelly Interiors

for allowing the Aslan logo in their place for this jersey, O'Neills Sportswear for all their all work to get the jerseys done, all the volunteers who have helped in the background and to every single person who ordered and supported this whole initiative in my Dads memory

“We can never thank you enough.

“Everything is still very raw for us but we were so privileged to hand over the cheque this morning to the hospice and meet with the nurses who helped us
