Down Syndrome Ireland is extending an invitation to everyone to get involved this December by wearing their most festive Christmas Jumper and raising funds to provide support for children with Down syndrome and their families.


Go-Ahead Ireland has placed 'Christmas Jumper Day 4 DSI' ads on their fleet of buses that span the entire network and are promoting donations to be made wherever possible.
