An 11-year-old girl has struck a blow for gender equality by wearing her Dublin colours to school in support of the ladies footballers who take on Cork in Sunday's All-Ireland final.
Freya Cahill and her classmates were apparently allowed to wear their Dublin jerseys to school before the recent All-Ireland men's football final, prompting her to ask: "if they can do it for the men's final why not the ladies?"
Freya, who risks detention for not wearing her school uniform, had the full support of her father Keith heading out the door this morning.
Very proud of my 11year old daughter Freya this morning. Got up, put on Dublin kit to wear to School. Asked her did the school say to wear dublin kit.She said "No,but if they can do it for the men's final why not the ladies, I'll take detention if I have too"!! @Hill16Army— Keith.
