Deadline to buy Christy Dignam Bohemians jersey extended with over €100,000 raised already

The deadline to purchase a Bohemians jersey commemorating Christy Dignam has been extended to midnight on Monday.

Over €100,000 was already raised for St Francis Hospice before Sunday night's original deadline to pre-order the one-off jersey passed, with Bohs deciding to extend sales by 24 hours to give supporters one final chance to purchase.

Friday's Dublin derby between the club and Shamrock Rovers paid tribute to the legendary Aslan singer with a minute's silence in his honour, while his daughter Kiera gave a memorable rendition of Crazy World in memory of her father.

In a statement, Bohs added: "The much-loved frontman overcame significant personal challenges to uplift generations across our communities – Dubliners who will forever remember and miss him very dearly."

All profits from jersey sales will go to St Francis Hospice.

The jersey can be pre-ordered here until midnight Monday night.
