GAA gear prices 2 dear or reasonable (Jerseys, shorts, socks)
« on: November 23, 2007, 12:37:11 AM »
THE cost of GAA gear these days is unbelieveable. Jerseys costing 38 pound a go. Shorts costing 15 and if thats not enough now oneills have brought out new socks at 6 a go. what was wrong with the white soul ones which have been out for 40 years. ONEILLS are money grabbing f*** and the same goes for gaelic gear and azzurri. Kids looking jerseys for christmas i may get them retro jjerseys us cork rural men are die hards

Why did you just create and account "Corkman7", delete it and create a new account "RTEWW"?

You get 3 years out a kit , quite cheap to be honest.
Anyway, long story short... is a phrase whose origins are complicated and rambling.

My kids getting great use out of them, easy washed and cleaned.

They have a range of county jerseys from all over 32 counties, you get better wear from them than a cheap top from Premark
God bless the hills of Dooish, be they heather-clad or lea,

Does anyone know how O'Neill's get away with using the 3 stripes? Surely this is trade marked by our german friends.

We as consumers should all go on strike ! Is Donal Og out there - if he's not doing anything, could he organise one for us ?  :D

They are a bit on the steep side but yeah, my GAA jerseys last a good long time. I had a 8 years old jersey that was in fine condition until i dontated to be hung on the wall in a pub in Chelmsford. They really are good quality.

Now that I think of it I have a fair amount of GAA jersies:

The New York one from 2004,
Kerry's blue away jersey.
Meaths last kepak Jersey, home and away,
the current Meath home jersey,
the boston police jersey,
Amaghs current home jersey
and I awaiting the delivery of a replica of my club jersey as well. 
Interation Rules Irish Jersey and shorts.
I also have Meath Tracksuit bottoms,
meath fleece top,
Meath Waterproof jacket,
Sleeveless Meath vest thing, (to show off my guns  :P)
meath bermuda shorts.
Meath hat
2 Meath polo shirts
And also the Meath 88' Retro jersey

all i need is a pair of Meath underwear and socks and i could be head to toe in meath
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

Apparently O'Neills had the stripes first, but only trademarked them for Ireland. O'Neills and Adidas have an agreement where Adidas can sell their stuff in the South and O'Neills can sell theirs in the North.

Thanks for that
