Have to agree that this has come very much out without any fanfareI have to say that this is a very big news story for our County and yet it appears to have come in under the radar, somewhat. I wasn't aware of this until this afternoon.
McKeever Sports are a local firm, so it is good to see one of our own get what I'm guessing is a very big 'gig' in terms of provision of sports gear. Good luck to them.
If I'm honest, and there will be people will disagree with me, I really like the O'Neills' gear and back in the noughties, when there was a lot of Azzurri and Gaelic Gear on the go at County level, I used to be thankful that we had not gone down that road. I think McKeevers therefore have big shoes to fill and I look forward to seeing what they produce in terms of quality and design. I really hope they come up trumps.
Can’t do any worse than O’Neill’s, Armagh haven’t had a nice jersey in years. I liked the rainbow communications one, especially in white, but other than that we more or less have had shíte jerseys since the 99 one.
Agreed the goalkeeper jersey is very smart. The home and away jersey however are identical in design! The colours are just reversed. Not fussed on either.Funny, this is where I would take issue. I won't pretend there haven't been one or two disasters, but as an example, the current goalkeeper's jersey and the away jersey are two of the nicest jerseys about. other great jerseys that come to mind were the home and away jerseys from 2004 - 2006. I'll admit that I was a bit disappointed with the home jersey this time around.
I'm definitely in the 'less is more' camp when it comes to jersey design.
is this the one but in colour?The 2002 shirt had the most annoying sleeves on it. Always thought it uncomfortable to wear.
The Rainbow shirt I like the most in recent years.
Still can’t beat the Carna Transport shirt. I’m still getting wear out of that one 62 years later!
