ST PAT’S SHOW RACISM THE RED CARD

  • Wed, Apr 22, 2009 @ 21:47

St Pat's defender Stephen Maher was among a number of League of Ireland players who were on hand to help launch the Show Racism the Red Card Poster Campaign at UCD yesterday.

The initiative supported by Newstalk will see 12 League of Ireland clubs distribute 60,000 anti-racism posters to schools nationwide. The posters feature squad players of each of the League of Ireland teams holding Show Racism the Red Card signs.

Under the Club Promotion Officer programme, League of Ireland clubs visit schools in their locality promoting a wide range of social messages, including healthy eating, anti-racism and the importance of milk in a healthy diet.

Garrett Mullen, coordinator of the Show Racism the Red Card programme, said that he was delighted to launch the 2009 poster campaign:

“The poster campaign has worked very well in previous years and we are delighted to once again have the co-operation of League of Ireland clubs in promoting the important message that racism can never be tolerated in sport or in society.”

This is the third year in a row that St Patrick's Athletic have signed up to the campaign and the club is delighted to be able to bring this multicultural message to school children in South West Dublin.
