CUH Charity is expecting a serious scrum for this piece of rugby memorabilia!

Ireland and Munster back row Peter O’Mahony wore the green shirt in the opening match of our Six Nations campaign – which culminated in an incredible home Grand Slam victory over England.

He has now handed it over to Cork University Hospital Charity to raise funds to enhance physiotherapy equipment in the main and maternity hospitals.

“After a memorable Six Nations, I’m happy to part with the jersey, knowing whatever is raised will help the thousands of people across Munster who rely on the physio unit in CUH and CUMH every year,” said the Cork star.

The signed and framed jersey, worn by O’Mahony against Wales in Cardiff on February 4, will be a prized possession for whoever wins it in an online draw on – it was also the day he won his 90th cap for Ireland.

“I realised it was something special but it was only when we went to the hospital’s charity office, that we realised how special,” said Grace Collins, Acting Senior Physiotherapist in Paediatrics at CUH.

“There were a lot of people, after hearing I got it, who wanted to know how to get their hands on it!”

She said the raffle proceeds will go towards purchasing new and up-to-date rehabilitative equipment which will aid patients’ recovery during their hospital stay at CUH.

It will also support physio and other hospital staff running the London Marathon for the same cause on April 23.
