Shamrock Rovers FC is proud to support @Ukrainianbooksfundraiser, an initiative set up by Rover’s fan Edel Finn (sister of club captain Ronan) to bring Ukrainian children’s books to Ireland.   

Yesterday (Friday), Shamrock Rovers’ Ukrainian player Viktor Serdeniuk, skipper Ronan Finn and Gary O’Neill visited Tallaght Library to mark the donation of 130 Ukrainian children’s books to South Dublin Libraries.   

Mayor of South Dublin Cllr Emma Murphy, along with other South Dublin councillors, opened the event. 

Viktor read a selection of books to the Ukrainian children in attendance while Ronan and Gary were on hand to get in plenty of photos with the kids.  

Through a partnership with the Ukrainian Crisis Centre of Ireland which has delivered the books from Ukraine to Ireland at no charge, this fundraiser has brought in over 750 Ukrainian children’s books to date.   

By donating what you can to @ukrainianbooksfundraiser you can help get a Ukrainian book into the hands of a Ukrainian child in our local area to provide them with comfort and a much-needed connection with home.
