Cúl Sliotars have launched five vintage collection GAA jerseys in support of Hurling for Cancer Research, an annual charity match organised by legendary racehorse trainer Jim Bolger and three-time champion jockey Davy Russell.
Cork, Dublin, Kildare, Tipperary, and Wexford vintage collection jerseys are available to purchase for €45 from www.culsliotars.ie.
€5 from every jersey sold will raise €5 for Hurling for Cancer Research in aid of the Irish Cancer Society.
The vintage collection represents a significant milestone moment for each county down through the years.
The Cork jersey celebrates the Rebels' historic centenary All-Ireland hurling victory in 1984 with number 8 on the back dedicated to captain John Fenton. The Dublin jersey marks the Dubs' 1983 All-Ireland football win over Galway, in memory of Anton O’Toole and his 14 jersey.
Nicky English’s number 15 Tipperary top remembers the Premier County's memorable 1991 All-Ireland SHC defeat of Kilkenny, while Glenn Ryan's Kildare number 6 jersey brings back memories of their 1998 Leinster SFC success.
The Wexford jersey is a replica of the one worn in the county's thrilling 1996 All-Ireland SHC victory against Limerick, and the number 11 represents Martin Storey.Tweet
