Mayo release class retro jersey for All-Ireland clash in New York
My word, this is a peach of a jersey.
James Horan will take his Mayo side to New York, in May, to kick off their latest quest for the Sam Maguire. They will line out for the Connacht SFC clash in a one-off jersey.
Mayo GAA has announced the men's senior side will wear the retro-feel jersey against New York at Gaelic Park on May 5.
The limited addition jerseys will feature a retro collar and there is a new sponsor for the game - Mayo.ie - and it is all to mark 'Mayo Day', which is set for Saturday, May 4. Horan comments:
"It is great to be part of the launch of the commemorative jersey which will be worn for the New York game as part of this year’s Mayo Day celebrations. Putting on a Mayo jersey is a huge source of pride for every Mayo player and is something that they are very aware of."
According to the release from the board, the design of the jersey 'reflects the quintessential GAA look and is modelled on the traditional style of a football jersey as a nod to the many pride-filled days in MacHale Park, Croke Park and Gaelic Park, where the green and red of Mayo has shone brightly from the stands'.
Not too much of a departure from the current kit for this year but with a couple of nifty tweaks.
