Speaking in advance of the Kerry Schoolboys/girls League FARE events, Chairman Martin Conway said: “We need to get the message out that discrimination of any sort – whether based on religious background, nationality or skin colour – is simply not acceptable, on or off the pitch. Fans and footballers alike have a duty to promote this message. It’s vital that we set strong examples and leadership for our children, and FARE Week is a great platform from which we can all unite against racism and celebrate diversity.”
Kerry Schoolboys/girls League is among over 80 groups, clubs and organisations around Ireland that are making FARE Week 2013
