Roughan & O’Donovan (ROD) today showed its support for GOAL’s Jersey Day initiative by encouraging staff to wear their team jerseys into the office and make a donation to the charity.

The office was ablaze with colour, with more club, team, county, province and country jerseys featuring today than in any previous year.

Needless to say, our Limerick contingent were shouldering their way to the front of the group photograph, still on a high from their All Ireland hurling success.

ROD’s Managing Director, Harry Meighan, was delighted to see the level of support within the company for the initiative:

We are very proud of our people and their efforts  to make a positive impact in society.  From volunteering on bridge projects in third world countries, to participating in charity cycles, to fundraising through cake sales, football matches and many other initiatives, our people always band together to support a good cause.
