The Monaghan senior footballers and management team have taken on a whole new look in recent weeks, as they raise money for two local charities.

The 'Shave or Dye' initiative has seen Conor McManus dye his hair the Kerry colours, 'Banty' McEnaney brave the colours of a rival club, and Rory Beggan take on a Dennis Rodman number.

So far the fundraising efforts have seen over €23,500 donated, which will go towards cancer services in the county and the Holy Family Special School in Cootehill, County Cavan.

Judging by the photos appearing online, some of the Farney County panel were in dire need of a trimming:

Donations can be made via the GoFundMe page, and there Monaghan GAA have explained why they decided to raise money for these two causes in particular.

"Cancer Services in Monaghan and The Holy Family Special School, Cootehill are in need of vital funds particularly now more than ever during this Covid-19 pandemic.

"We are appealing to everyone to help us reach our target of €30,000 to help our charities provide and maintain crucial services within our community.

"Every day in Ireland, 150 people are diagnosed with cancer. That is 1 person every 3 minutes.  As a result, there is an enormous need for support and information for patients across the country. Cancer Services in Monaghan are there to provide support to patients every step of the way.

"The Holy Family Special School is a special national school for pupils aged four to eighteen years. Thee pupils are from the catchment area of the Counties of Cavan and Monaghan. The school caters for pupils with severe/profound learning disabilities, moderate/multiple learning disabilities and for pupils with autism.

"To vote for Monaghan GAA players to shave or dye visit the Monaghan GAA Facebook, Twitter and Instagram each day and help decide their fate...  Then visit us again for the eagerly awaited results. Let the Fun begin!"
