Red Card at Tolka

Ex-Ireland football internationals Niall Quinn and Curtis Fleming, along with the Gaelic Players Union’s Chief Executive, Dessie Farrell, helped launch the campaign. A unique partnership of three player’s unions and three teacher’s unions has united in a major educational initiative to Show Racism the Red Card in Ireland.

The event was attended by schoolchildren from around Dublin who joined the footballing greats along with Dessie Farrell (GPA), Mark Rutherford St Patrick’s Athletic, and FIFPro’s Tony Higgins in a question and answer forum.

Niall Quinn said: “There is absolutely no place in society for racial or religious intolerance. It is imperative that we get this message across especially to children at a young age. Getting the anti-racism message over through an education process in sport is an initiative I am proud to be part of.”

FIFPro’s anti-racism spokesperson Tony Higgins who attended added: “FIFPro are delighted to be a sponsor of this initiative underlining their commitment to anti-racist campaign throughout world football. I would also like to thank in particular Show Racism the Red Card who are a very effective grassroots organisation in the anti-racist movement.”

Stephen McGuinness, PFAI Chairman said; “we are delighted to be part of the anti racism campaign and look forward to involving the eircom League clubs. Shamrock Rovers and Drogheda United have already agreed to take part in a pilot program for season 2006”.
