Title: New Jerseys?
Post by: Farrandeelin on September 22, 2007, 07:57:27 PM
I saw on the Star today that the GAA are going to have numbers on front and back of intercounty jerseys, starting in January. I assume all the jerseys will take on a new format so?

Jerseys to be numbered from 2008
by Brian Murphy, 22 September 2007
 
Inter-county jerseys will have numbers printed on both the front and the back from next season.

The move could herald the end of referees having to ask players to turn around to show their number's after thay are booked.

The new rule will be enforced from the satrt of next season, but only inter-county teams will have to adhere from the start of next season.

The issue was discussed at Congress in April but the GAA decided not to implement the rule until 2008 as most team jerseys had already been designed.

Here we go again!! Not only are the paying public fleeced by the GAA through exorbitant entrance fees, now the clubs will have to (eventually) replace all their kits. Where do they think the money is going to come from? Many clubs are struggling financially as it is.

I've got it!! The GAA will pay for them?

It didn't stop the referee causing a scene when asking a "talkative" QUB player to turn around for his number in the Sigerson Final. The QUB Player informed him his number was on his chest, but then 2-3 minutes of comedy ensued as the ref tried to get the player to turn around. With him just holding his number on his chest out to the ref!

I think it's a good idea from the spectator's point of view and can only help officials as well. I can't see that it will add great expense for clubs. I can't imagine they'll be forced to dump their good gear - I'd expect the ruling to apply to any new gear purchased.
Title: Re: New Jerseys?
Post by: Maguire01 on September 23, 2007, 02:37:17 PM
Surely clubs could just add numbers to the existing jerseys?  It's not rocket science - it would hardly cost a fortune! Some people just love a good moan!

Just out of interest, would the numbers be small, or as big as those on the back and where would they sit in relation to the sponsors logo?

From what I've read, this applies to inter-county teams only. Club teams won't be effected.
I can't remember where I read that though, I'll see if I can find it

Here's the piece I read - it's from hoganstand.com
Quote
All inter-county GAA jerseys will have their numbers visible from all angles next year, it has been announced by Croke Park.

All jerseys will have their numbers on both their front and back but clubs won’t be forced to go the same road.

"It will come in from January next year," GAA President Nickey Brennan confirmed. The move had been mooted at Congress in April but it was decided to not to apply the ruling until 2008.”

Referees will thus no longer have need to ask players to turn around so as to identify their numbers.

That's a very good question, some of the Kildare purists who were up in arms at the few games in the qualifiers where Kildare had to wear green will not be happy with this new addition of colour, but at least it remains undoubtedly mostly white  ;)

Very annoyed that the fcukwits in the Kildare County Board have added colours to what should be an all-white jersey to fit in with the sponsor's logo.

It makes no sense. Does any other team in GAA or any sport modify the colour of the jersey to match the sponsor's branding?

It's arguable that the dark green on the Kildare jersey came the shade used on the Tegral logo. Waterford incorporated the Waterford Co-op colours into their jerseys from 1996-2000:

Both to wear the exact same jersey as well for the first time in a long time. Presume it will be unveiled tonight as the footballers are meant to be wearing it against Derry next weekend.

Like our current Hospice jerseys, best looking Roscommon jerseys since the Dermot and Tony Mac days. Someone went fiddling with the font size of the logo last year and made it look worse. I guess we're going ahead with the same basic jerseys for a third year?

New jersey for Donegal.

Sponsorship logos of recent times have become ludicrous, ruining decent looking jersey designs.  Westmeath, Armagh, Louth and now Donegal spring to mind.

The sponsor logos have got a lot bigger of late and now have taken to being plastered over the back too. Horrendous looking.
Why should the sponsorship logos be up to 5x the size of a crest.

Jerseys should remain stylish with discreet sposorship. Kids would want them and want to wear them regularly. You'd then maximize the exposure to sponsors while retaining a county identity, not being a corporate whore

Totally agree. Some of the sponsors logos in recent times are horrendous and too prominent altogether.

Exhibit 1


Way too big and totally out of sync with the jersey.

Exhibit 2


Is there really a need for that large yellow box on a Maroon jersey? Hideous looking IMo.

The Down and Donegal jerseys pictured already above are less garish. The white logo for example isn't terrible on the Down jersey but the logo seems excessively large. The Donegal new jersey is a move away from the inobtrusive Donegal Creameries logo into a more obtrusive colour scheme. Again, mightn't be a huge deal to some people (and no doubt is the result of a decent sponsorship deal) but it's a route I don't like to see us going down. Just my own view. I can't help but picture Australian Rugby League  jerseys here..forgive me!

Think green with yellow hoop was the traditional one, but then they went to the gold jersey in the 60s, before going back to the green/yellow hoop in the 80s.

We went back to the gold jersey again due to the clash with Mayo in the '92 semi, and then decided to stick with it for good. We had a clash with Fermanagh earlier that same season, but just wore Ulster colours.

Now, since 2011, we change to white when there's a clash. Before that, the green/yellow hoop was the change jersey.

I have seen plenty of GAA training gear designed by Kukri and all appears good in terms of quality and design. I am talking about polo tops, fleeces, jackets, training tees etc. However, on the playing strip side of things I have seen max 5 kits which is a shame as they appear to pushing hard to break into the GAA side of things but it is hard to break the monopoly that O'Neills hold. It wont happen overnight and will require a sustained period of pushing hard on Kukri behalf to enable them to break the mould.

O'Neills need someone to keep them on their toes - some of the McRory Cup teams or maybe all of them are getting their playing gear from a crowd called Masita but I know nothing about them in terms of quality etc.

Some of the casual GAA gear that clubs are getting now on an increasing basis from the likes of Nike, Puma and Adidas are top notch and really look the part - the GAA store in Portydown are doing a good job on that side of things.

Just had a look on their website - errrrr lol

The DNA of Kukri Sports dates back to 1979, when the British Army Gurkhas and RAF joined together to create a stronger rugby club, the Flying Kukris. They officially became one club, when in true Kukri Sports tradition, a tailor was tasked with stitching the shirts of both clubs together to create a bespoke playing kit.

Serious question. As it is a county jersey, as opposed to a 'code' jersey, do they put the stars on the hurling jersey as well? What about underage jerseys, do they have the star, or do they have the stars for that grade?

Would/should Offaly have a 3 star football one, and a 4 star hurling one, or just put 7 on them all?

Interesting question and I've never actually thought about it like that before, so I had to do a bit of research! It appears that all jerseys, including the hurlers and underage teams in Meath carry the 7 stars. So, if Offaly were to follow this example, then they would put 7 stars on all their jerseys. Our hurling jersey has a different sponsor, the design itself is the same, but I've never seen it available to buy online or in shops. Hurling definitely plays second fiddle to football in the county so I'd imagine O'Neills didn't really consider the hurlers when they included the 7 stars. If there was more of a 50/50 split between football and hurling in the county, then maybe it would be reconsidered. But like you said, it's a county jersey as opposed to a code jersey..

Very few companies would be willing to part with big bucks to sponsor an inter county team, if their logo wasn't clearly visible on the front of the jersey. It's a form of advertising for them. If it's made smaller and relegated to a part of the jersey, that you have to strain your eyes to see it, then what's the point, from a commercial point of view?

Just seen the article about Dublin maybe changing from O'Neills, would this be good for the GAA having the biggest team in the country with another supplier? equally, would it be a downfall for O'Neills in that with more competition they wouldn't have the market cornered as much as they do? i like oneills gear but i find it very over priced and very little unique to each team/ county.

I like O'Neills' gear, nice designs, works well and compared to soccer jerseys they're still pretty cheap.

Can't see anyone who already owns last year's Westmeath top buying this year's one, I wonder what the point was in this so called redesign. I think the Cavan one is quite nice though (from the front - the back is awful).

Dunno whereyou are getting the "illegal monopoly" bit from. Theres plenty of other suppliers in the marketplace. O'Neills cant be beaten on quality and I think clubs and county are pretty loyal to them as well.

Indeed there isn't... All playing apparel for the GAA MUST be manufactured in Ireland for Club and County football and Hurling (Not sure about Camogie and Ladies Football but think they're the same) which means there are very very few sports companies who can compete with O'Neill's monopoly on that!

This.

We;ve had gear from Kukri, MAsita and O'Neills, as well as training tops, tracksuits and the like from a good few others at this stage. You can't beat O'Neills for quality, longevity and even appearance I think.

We just had an option for our development squad. Free top from one of those other manufacturers, or a €15 contribution to get an O'Neill's one. The parents, to a man/woman, picked the O'Neills, even though it was going to cost them €15.

That's true, a few counties tried other brands and were not happy with the quality or quantity of the gear received and went back to ONs. Re the designs, they are limited to what each county board allows. CBs invariably want to stick to their traditional and as such ONs are limited in what they can do.

That's true Lily, re design, but I think O'Neills normally suggest a few options, (after getting a steer from the CB), and the CB picks one or the other.

The made in Ireland part is pushed to limit by O Neills also. Most of the production is done in cheaper countries and a small bit of final stitching in Ireland to comply. Surely the rule is against European Competition Law.

Come on men - O'Neills have no competition with playing kit. Irish made and licensing has created a monopoly - kukri don't have the wherewithal to break into the market but the uptake of clubs in the north using international brands for training and leisure wear paints a picture.

If the market were opened up O'Neills would be cleaned out on design, quality and particularly customer service.

O, and the Irish produced rule is completely illegal under EU law but just has never been challenged.
O'Neills jerseys are all produced in the Far East anyway and sublimated in strabane and Dublin.

Azzuri, masita and Kukri all make playing kit that is used, and they are all inferior to oneills. I don't understand why you are saying there's no competition. There is, it's cheaper, and people still don't like it.

Sligo had Azzurri for years and while their jerseys weren't particularly appealing (how hard is it to do an all-black jersey) and had a constant need to throw in other colours (grey FFS) and lines and other pointless crap on the jersey design, the quality of the jersey itself was fairly ok, and their other stuff, jackets, polo shirts, hoodies etc. was actually decent. Unfortunately they've decided to go off to Kukri in recent years and they seem to be inferior in every respect, wouldn't go near any of their gear at all.

Are Sligo not kukri? A lot of clubs are now using a mix of manufacturers for training gear. Adidas, Puma, Nike and Uhlsport are a few I can think of. Kerry were Adidas around 96/97 but then the GAA stepped in I believe.

The big thing that annoys me about O'Neills is the sizing! Their stuff is massive. I would be around L or XL in most of the Adidas and Nike type gear. I could get away with wearing the normal fit small mans jersey. Things like skinny tracksuit bottoms is a nightmare to find the right size for some of the small fellas on our club senior side.

I am doing the gear for our club and I have found their staff tough enough to deal with, although a lot better than they used to be! They are also very expensive but I think the big thing is their quality is excellent. People will happily pay a little more for good quality. I was sold by the Adidas and Nike club gear when it first came out around the clubs, but now I think it looks a bit spidey and crap looking actually. The under armour gear that Queens university got a few years ago was lovely looking. I was just saying the other day it is amazing the amount of O'Neills gear that the young ones run about in nowadays. It seems to be the 'cool' thing to wear.

A lot of the adidas, Nike, puma etc gear is absolute shite, people think they're getting a good deal on a major brand when in reality the merchandise is total bollox. You might think your team looks like Chelsea or Bayern Munich in their adidas tracksuits but actually compare them with the proper team wear that these brands do and you'll see a world of difference. Our club actually did a big order and a friend of mine who plays for an Irish league team had the same kit manufacturer at the same time, night and day between the two. In that sense, oneills is actually quite good value as it imo matches the main brands for quality whilst also being competitive on price.

That Mayo jersey isn't half bad, although not having Intersport in it's branded colours helps. Other counties take note.

Think its class.
Are 2 sponsors now allowed.  That should be great for clubs.
Intersport acquired Elverys in 1998....same company so a loop hole re 2 sponsors I reckon

I think it was Staunton's that bought Elverys and Intersport is a brand like SPAR or Centra so its all part of the company name as in 'Munnellys Centra'

Sligo IT is our associate sponsor. We're always in opposite divisions in the FBD. The Prentyburo are happy with the "draw" they made many years ago. They'll have to change it next year as I think the supreme leader has grown tired of the colleges.

Ironically the only thing that is missing is the name of the county.

I would pay 50% more even double just to be able to wear one without all the sponsorship .

I know the sponsors pay up, and agree that the players should have to wear them, for TV, photo's etc, but the everyday ordinary supporter??

Because it's an inherent part of the package counties sell to sponsors? Look, as long as the logo is tastefully integrated with the jersey (Westmeath's would be a perfect example of not bothering to do this) then I don't think anyone should have much complaints about the sponsors' logo. This is what sport is in 2017. In fact if it's what the players are wearing then I'd prefer it to match that than look like some sort of off-brand logo-less jersey.

Very few jerseys are tastefully integrated with sponsors anymore though. Kildares is an abomination as was our hunky dory get up. The blue on the front of the cork jersey is jarring just as vodaphone was on the dubs for a few years. Kerry, Elverys, kingspan and a few others are some of the few tasteful sponsors logos left.

The vast majority of jerseys look a lot worse without a sponsor. The problem is just having a sponsor that matches the jersey, and some of them (like Wexford or Westmeath) clash horribly.

If you had an option to take sponsor of the jersey you would cut your sponsorship money in 2 and anyway as someone said above most look look crap.

Jerseys are much nicer without a sponsor imo.
That's why if im buying anything I'd usually opt for a training top instead of the jersey. They still have a sponsor but usually far smaller and not plastered right across the front.
The Laois jeresy is as nice as there is but is ruined by the sponsor.

Bloody designers set loose. Going back to the 50s or something like that.  5 all ireland finals since 1986 in the red togs.  3 titles, 2 leagues.  Have lost 2 league finals in the white togs v Dublin and Derry.  Id be superstitious like that.

I could be wrong here, but I seem to recall someone telling me (during a drunken discussion about Tyrone football in a Belfast pub) that it was something to do with rugby league. Apparently (and this could be utter bullshit) rugby league found that teams whose jerseys and shorts were same colours picked up fewer upper leg injuries in the tackle than those whose jerseys and shorts were different colours. Like I say, could be ballix, or there could be something in it. In my defence, I was blocked  :D

The players' jerseys are also a tighter fit. You can get them from O'Neills online store. The supporters' jerseys are baggy as fúck. In most sports the player versions are made of some sort of space age mesh. Adidas and Nike tops are just nicer to wear. Never tried an Kukri or Masita jersey so I don't know what they're like.

Ironically having all the design elements and sponsors screen printed means the jerseys can take a wash more easily, but they definitely don't feel as premium as what you see in other sports.

we have had the current one for two years which is generally the length of time a jersey lasts

I think the normal period before a jersey change is three years. Exceptions are usually around a change to shirt sponsorship, as was the case when we parted company with Hugh Morgan.
No it seems to be two years now with three being increasingly the exception.

Tyrone's is alright but three things I'm not gone on:
-The collar, looks a bit flimsy
-The three stripes stopping at the shoulders and not going on the sleeve
-The three stars, really unnecessary tbh

GAA jerseys usually last for 3 years. If there's a change of sponsor they usually change the jersey as well. We used a sponsor change for 2006 to change that abomination of a jersey we had for a year in 2005.

Edit: See Rufus beat me to it
There's no set time period for jersey changes -  it varies by county but the general trend for most counties is that changes have been getting more frequent.

On average, Dublin tend to change their jersey once every two years but this has varied due to sponsor changes.

Over the last 20 years, new Dublin kits appeared in:
December 1997
May 2000
May 2002
May 2004
November 2006
November 2008
January 2010
November 2012
November 2013
May 2016

Basically an average of one every two years.

In that time, Tyrone had the same kit design from 1999 to 2003 inclusive with a change to the WJ Dolan sponsor's logo in 2001, then did four seasons from 2004-2007 inclusive with their first Rocwell-sponsored kit, then two years in 2008/09 with a different kit, three years from 2010-12 inclusive with a Target Express sponsored kit, two years with Hunky Dorys in 2013-14 and three years with the McAleer and Rushe kit.

I doubt it screen, all their new Slaney range has "O Neills" branded on them. Plus the new International Rules and All Stars jerseys have the old "O'NEILLS" on them too. They might change to "o'neills" on new prins of the jersey but I'd imagine everything else will be unchanged till the next redesign.

I’m very chilled - it’s an academic argument which doesn’t really matter much.

And I didn’t say it was “small time” winning an All Ireland or that such achievements shouldn’t be honoured. I watch Donegal’s two wins regularly myself. I’d have no objections to statues of McEniff and McGuinness outside MacCumhaill Park someday or murals of Murphy, Manus Boyle and Karl Lacey etc. honoring the players. Whatever a county wants to do. Just not sure that putting a couple of stars on a jersey is the best approach when the most successful counties have nine or ten times as many.

I’d personally rather Donegal did not go down that road. Others are free to disagree.

I didn't think Donegal had the 2 stars on the jersey and we definitely don't have a star on ours. I think it's a bit sad really compared to the other 5 teams you just mentioned and I wouldn't want it on our jersey either.

Correct. Then they had an open draw for the four 97-98 league divisions with a plan to re-align back to tiered divisions again the year after.
Offaly got landed in a group of death with Kerry, Dublin, Monaghan, Tyrone, Sligo, Cavan and Wexford. Offaly won all the games bar a draw with Sligo on the way to the league title.

As with all best laid plans...the problem became that Kerry finished 5th in this Division, therefore were scheduled to begin the next league campaign in Division 3. So a compromise was needed and they created the 1A, 1B, 2A and 2B divisional set up, meaning Kerry were only one promotion from the top flight instead of two.

Kerry breezed through the next league campaign to get back to the top flight, which including an almighty battering of the Kilkenny footballers.

Donegal Jersey has the potential to be class, that design would be great but no need for the 3 green stripes just gold to green would have been great. the sponsor takes away from it also.

Overheard at O'Neills Strabane offices

Here, if its good enough for Man Utd and Adidas... well bey f**k it'll be good enough for Donegal

Anyone on here used MFC Sports yet, thoughts?

Yes, But sure you can still come up with a decent improvisation of the old Crest. There was plenty to work with on with the old crest.




To make matters worse the Jersey has ended up double crested - with the Sponsors crest on it as well.

The hurlers have usually had a very good following the past 7 or 8 years or so. Getting to 3 All-Ireland finals in that time helps for sure. The footballers not so much but even they have been getting a bigger following the past few years as they slowly improve.

I know that from ordering my own club gear from O’Neill’s that they’re an absolute disaster. Ordered a top, when I got it, the secondary colour was incorrect.
Also our club has a very generous sponsor whose only request is that his company’s logo be on all gear. It is on the site, but when I ordered gear it came without the logo. I sent them back straight away. They’re so lazy, probably trying to save a few cent on thread.

''The form which is known to all Renault fans was firstly introduced in 1992. Later logo was updated and several changes have been made in 2004 and 2007. This is when the name of the company appeared on the badge together with square colored yellow making it more dynamic and modern. Every detail has a special meaning and refers to particular qualities of the company and autos it produces. For example, silver color means sophistication and creativity. Yellow background means prosperity ad optimism.''

as long ad it doesn't infringe any trade mark either the GAA or the counties one  its fairgame and no monies due .
that's the reason almost every county has changed their crest in the last few years , before that most were using the same one as the county council there not trade markable . often only a subtle change like may which is more or less a rejigging of the same symbols

Certainly reminiscent of the jersey Meath wore in the late 80's including the 1990 All-Ireland final - below is the Meath Minor team that beat Kerry in the All-Ireland final...




...that jersey didn't seem to survive into the 1991 championship, the first two games against Dublin saw Meath wearing a jersey with gold sleeves, with O'Reily Transport as the sponsor, while the last two seen them revert back to green sleeves with gold trim, the sponsors being Kepak. Neither jersey appear to have the thin line squares on their front...







...if you have two hours to kill, there is a highlights show of the four game saga between Meath and Dublin on YouTube that was produced by RTE at the time with Michael Lyster hosting.

Meath



That's similar to one in the 80s, 90s. Was it from the saga in 1991?

Certainly reminiscent of the jersey Meath wore in the late 80's including the 1990 All-Ireland final - below is the Meath Minor team that beat Kerry in the All-Ireland final...


I thought Azzurri were gone years ago!

They must be the only other one in the market - they had Sligo a few years ago but not any more.

Good to see the Déise sticking with a local company.

At one point Azzurri were the official kit suppliers to Waterford, Laois, Sligo & Donegal before all reverted back to O'Neills. The now defunct Gaelic Gear also at one time had Down, Fermanagh and Wexford.

Did I not hear somewhere recently that Gaelic Gear had now got the licence to manufacture Jerseys again. I know they are flat out at training gear, etc.

I'm not really sure, the "original" Gaelic Gear went out of business in mid-2010 though I see that a company called "Gaelic Gear Ltd." was registered in February 2017 with an address based in Downpatrick. I don't know enough to know if this is a "phonenix" business or is completely unrelated to the original firm.

Folks,
Have any of ye bought one of the Órga Retro Wear jerseys yet?

There's a new one coming out for us soon, so I just wanted to gauge the sizing of it, before buying.

If you have one, what's the fit like...tight and exact as per their website measurements (which can sometimes be taken with a pinch of salt!), or do they fit bigger in real life?

Any feedback would be appreciated!

The current sponsorless Limerick jersey is very attractive and much enhanced by the lack of blurb on the front.

We've had Azzurri and Masita and a few before. Think Fermanagh had a Gaelic Gear kit a few years back. These companies usually don't stay in the game long sadly.

Donegal actually won an All Ireland when Azzurri manufactures the kits. Unless a new kit manufacturer has serious financial backing it's hard to see them making much inroads.

I'd like to have a few different kit makers about as it's a bit boring with O'Neill's rolling out the same lazy templates for every county.

Are Azzurri still in operation and apart from Armagh is there another county with a company other than O'Neill's manufacturing a kit.

Connollys (from Galway I think) early to mid-90s produced kits too. Don't think they supplied any county kits right enough.

For me O'Neills is the best sports gear you can buy. MFC's producing some fine gear too.

Very pricey indeed.  Wouldn't be too keen on the quality for their prices.

Good to see Armagh and Waterford etc. supporting their companies.

I think O'Neills still pump out a lot of jersies from last season and the season before and charge £10 or £12 for them and make a fortune.

£10-12 pound hardly expensive for a jersey even if older design. Tops £7-8 pounds in Asda and no comparison on quality.
Think county stuff is too dear, but club gear seems to be well priced for quality imo.

They will surely, as will the Craigavon O'Neills store.  I was in it the other day there and it so strange that all of the Armagh gear isn't towards the front of the shop anymore.  Also, I have no idea why this store doesn't stock the local club gear as they would make a complete fortune.

McKeever has been doing Derry City fc the last while which is probably the only gig they have remotely close to a county team and while I’m a fan of the new Armagh gear I just hope they have the capacity to meet demand in the run up to Christmas. Prices I think are slightly more favourable than what O’Neill’s offer with similar quality. A number of clubs in Armagh are now switching from O’Neill’s to McKeever and they are very easy to work with compared to some of the other suppliers.

We had Azzurri for nearly 10 years and Kukri for 2-3. Never thought much of their stuff but Azzurri's could be good or middling. This site shows the changes in kits over the years http://www.prideinthejersey.com/Sligo.html (http://www.prideinthejersey.com/Sligo.html)

Connolly did most of the Connacht counties during the 90's but think they went out of business after that.

Think O'Neill's do good quality stuff and yes it can be pricey, but then you look at what soccer and rugby jerseys are being sold for and it could be worse. From previous experience it seemed that buying stuff in their own stores were much better value than buying them online or in other retailers.

Sickner is I could have bought all up the town in a local sports shop but I gave these boys the business.

They’ve some shite on their website and you wonder how they expect to sell any of it. Our club went with mckeevers last year and look to be doing so from now on so I hope they get their house in order because the gear itself is actually quite nice

Aye flashback to the fashion guru Pal Galvin designed Kerry gansai, which was basically that seasons ManU design ripped off. Am honestly baffled with the 3 stripe faux Adidas erection O'Neills and everyone seems to have. Each to their own I spose.

The Mayo away is nice. They were wearing it against Meath and them playing at home. Colour change was needed, but Meath had their alternative so wasn't necessary with both
 Maybe more to display the jersey.

Has anyone had Playr-Fit or SB Sports gear for their clubs? Club has been looking at some kits for U7/U9 etc. Both seem reasonable but not much cheaper than O'Neills. Both are keen to get stuff in though. Not overly sure on the quality of either. I know a local boxing club got the SB stuff and they seem happy with it. Going to look at MFC and Peninsula Sports too. I'm wary of getting more training like tops instead of jerseys but if we're honest even O'Neills jerseys don't last that long anymore. We've ones from 15 years ago and they're in better shape than some of the new ones.

Would recommend Playr-Fit. Our club got gear off them about 4/5 years ago. Still getting good wear out of it now, no rips, pulls etc. O’Neill’s is still king though. At least you know what you get with O’Neills

Our club have been using MFC for 4 or 5 years now, top quality gear and 10 times better service than O’Neill’s, can’t see us ever changing, much better value too

To be fair it would be a poor job if Dromore didn’t support MFC.

Our camogie club gear is MFC and it’s superior in design and quality to the O’Neills gear that the football club uses.

The Mayo away jersey was designed by a 5 or 6 year old. I don't like it either but you can't criticise the effort.

The wifes running club had Peninsula Sports half zips and coats as samples and they looked dead on quality wise. Not sure they do actual playing jerseys but you can but ask.

I noted Shane Lowry managed to get himself a sponsor-less Offaly jersey for the match yesterday. Maybe an old retro one that has been in the family, but it looked newish
