AIG Ireland has today announced that the logo of children’s charity Aoibheann’s Pink Tie, will replace the insurer’s logo on the front of the Dublin jersey for upcoming football, ladies football and camogie fixtures. Dublin footballers will wear the jersey on Sunday, August 5th, during their final game in the All Ireland Senior Championship Quarter Final series against Roscommon.  The camogie team will don the jersey on the same weekend during their quarter final game against Galway in Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Saturday, August 4th.  Finally, the ladies footballers will wear the limited-edition jersey during their quarter final game on August 12th.
