Dublin Bus workers from twenty two different countries play a Gaelic football charity challenge match.

As part of Anti-Racist Workplace Week, Dublin Bus organised a charity GAA match with workers from twenty two different countries taking part. The game would raise much needed money for Our Lady's Children Hospital in Crumlin.

Dublin Bus currently employs people from forty seven different countries. 

Of 3,300 employees, 6 per cent have a country of origin outside the EU and a further 3 per cent from countries within the EU.

For Luis Bernard from Portugal, GAA football is much different to games played in his home country. 

John Cassidy explains that they plan to have another charity fundraiser match which will include thirty non-national bus drivers. 

For Mohammed Bakeer from Somalia, this is his first time playing Gaelic football and he is looking forward to playing again. 

It looks like Dublin Bus have started a new international phase in Gaelic games.
