Dublin Airport staff kit out in county colours for a good cause
Staff at Dublin Airport have been encouraged to wear their county colours to work today in aid of the airport’s three charity partners.
The charities supported by Dublin Airport this year are MS Ireland, My Canine Companion for Autism, and Merchant's Quay Ireland.
Both frontline and office based staff have been encouraged to wear their county colours.
"We're always looking for fun and simple ideas to raise money for charity partners," Siobhan O'Donnell, Dublin Airport charity chairperson, said.
"We're hoping that passengers travelling through Dublin Airport today will join in some good humoured banter with our colleagues, " O'Donnell added.
Passengers travelling through Dublin Airport today can expect to see an array of GAA jerseys worn by staff across the terminals.
Dublin Airport staff wearing their county colours are each making a donation of €5 to the airport's Charities of the Year fund.
There will be two extra special guests at the airport today as the GAA is lending the airport the Sam Maguire and Liam McCarthy cups.
O'Donnell said that passengers are encouraged to get into the spirit of the event by also wearing their county colours.
Dublin Airport's charity programme started in 2007 and, over the past ten years employees at the airport, supported by the company and members of the public, have raised €2m for 18 different Irish charities.
