Dont like the away jersey. Too close to Kerry. Surely we could have been more original

Well those were the Donegal colours prior to 92. So it is pretty original.

Yes I believe up until the AI semi final in 92 we used the predominantly green with yellow trim in the middle. From that Mayo game til last Saturday night we had the more yellow/gold one, Open to correction on that but I think I'm right.

We wore a green with a yellow hoop against Antrim in 2004 as well I recollect.

We changed to the Yellow jerseys and green togs as far back as the 1960,s.Look at last weeks photo in the Democrat of out first Ulster winning team.There were a couple of changes since then particularly under Tom Conaghan who wanted to use the Kerry style jersey.I also saw a photo of the 1966 Ulster Final team and it was the Yellow jersey.I think along with Down we were the first county not to wear white togs.

You're right, seems to be a variation down through the years between the stripe style and the all/predominantly yellow. We've been on the yellow style for 26 years now... could be time for a switch back. Could also be a statement for this new team coming together.

The yellow version we had 2014 & 2015 was very nice, but there has been a few dodgy versions down the years
