Replying To Richieq:  "Overall I think we have a relatively good record over the years with jerseys in Meath apart from a few one off aberrations, the final jersey in '90 which for some reason had "An Mhí" in big letters across the chest was unnecessary and the short lived O'Reilly Transport jersey in '91 with the gold sleeves bore a resemblance to kitchen curtains of the '70's. Donegal under Azzuri had an awful mustardy yellow kit with vertical green stripes which was pure cat and that Galway away camouflage jersey doesn't do anything for me, I agree that the Chill logo does nothing for the Cork jersey and Wexford had a few ropey efforts too but have returned to more popular styles. I await with interest the unveiling of the new Meath jersey in mid December which is rumoured to be a throwback to the late 80's design with the squares on the front, sometimes retro is good if done properly, we shall see."
Yeah apart from the an mhi one I don't think we have had a bad looking jersey. Lucky I guess. But let's wait we have a new one in a few days, hopefully it's not a bad one.

Just thinking to myself, should Eire Og win the Leinster final on Sunday, their jerseys might very well become "collectors items" irrespective of colour and design.??

Replying To gatha:  "I think in general O'Neills do not make an attractive jersey or even shirts for that matter. They have lines going all over the place and some of the colors are terrible. They have carried over theses ugly designs into their jerseys now."
Would agree with that actually, the material that GAA jerseys are made from is fairly crappy and unsuitable for any warm weather climate you might find yourself on holidays in.

Nothing special, but better then last one you'll have to admit (or at least in my opinion)

To be fair to them it has to be made out of that type of material to withstand being pulled and dragged out of, kind of like the rugby jerseys. If the material was any lighter it would get torn to shreds.

Most GAA people would be shocked to know where some of their jersies are manufactured & originate from. If you thought they originated from sweat shops in India, where people including children work under horrendous conditions, long hours & slave labour pay, would you be happy about that. People need to start asking questions & thinking about what's going on. However as we saw this week in another sporting organisation anyone who questioned things were silenced by those in authority at the organisation & by those within the clubs & media who censored all those who questioned. It's time for real journalism especially within the GAA to start asking questions instead of censoring honest questions & they could start with GAA jerseys & where some of them are manafactured & under what conditions.

Are the majority produced abroad? Never head that before.

I always thought they were made in the O Neills Factory in Walkinstown. The factory there is still manufacturing, but to what percentage it does of the mass kits nationally i dont know, i know they produce the kit for the Dublin Senior teams kits there.

You could say that about practically every items of clothing and footwear you and everyone else is wearing.
All the big outlets source their products in poorer foreign countries.
A lot of O Neills work is done in Dublin and Strabane and of course they are having products brought in from abroad aswell.

I recently read a story about Doc Martin's that all they needed to do was make something like 6% of their shoes in England to slap the made in UK label on em
