I am sending you a link to an article in today's (19th December) Irish

Times about the Ireland Under-15 football team which defeated Juventus

yesterday in Qatar. The team's coach, Niall Harrison, says that this is

the most ethnically diverse squad ever sent abroad by the FAI.

There are interviews with Des Tomlinson, the FAI's Intercultural Officer

who is also on the board of "Show Racism the Red Card", with Ken McCue of

"Sport against Racism Ireland", and with Johnny Bootman of Corduff FC. All

four spoke of the challenges young players face and the contribution they

are making.
