A powerful message.

The humanitarian crisis gripping Europe is the focus of huge attention at the moment and was thrown into context by the tragic pictures of a young Syrian boy washed up a Turkish beach that emerged yesterday.

In Ireland, a petition has been set up urging the Irish government to welcome more refugees, while earlier today, Bohemians revealed a mural that has just been painted at Dalymount Park.

Bohs are a club that have frequently been ahead of the curve in relation to wider social issues and it will be interesting to see whether similar messages will be on show at other major public events taking place in the country over the next few days.
