Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "Thanks cockney-cat, I don't know if I like it, I haven't seen it up close in person yet but from the pictures iv seen it looks very busy to me there is a lot going on.

Maybe it's a tactic to distract the opossision :-)"
My point was it looks very similar to the new Tipp jersey, and that both have got a bit of a retro look about them, which I like.
Still waiting to see Kilkenny's new jersey, I'll be pleased if it's similar in style to Tipp's and Kerry's.

I really dislike the 3 short horizontal stripes on the sleeves that Oneills are putting on some of these jersies the last while. It looks like a total after thought just for the sake of putting something on.

Theres been a few horror shows down the years, but I think O'Neills tended to get it more right than wrong.

If you will allow me, the Monaghan 2013-2015 edition which saw 2 Ulsters is the pinnacle for our County.
Depth of colour with the square patterns on the blue sleeves, raised stripes on the sleeves...and it's that aspect that for many of us if a certain age, is what defines what jerseys should be (I may be guilty of being a nerd here).

The trend to new-ish horizontal stripes is almost certainly an effort to avoid adidas issues overseas. I get that, and doesn't have to be a step backwards.. But, if it's incorporated within the design and is "smooth", then for grumpy old eejits like me, it's not the same, and I then agree with those saying it's souvenir at an airport shop.

Rant over.

I just looked it up and it's a 100% improvement from the old logo on the big yellow square. Hopefully we come out with something similar as I don't think we have updated our jersey in a while. Maybe it will be unveiled at the eagerly awaited "Renault Derby" tomorrow in Mullingar ;-)

Don't like the new Kerry jersey at all, looks like something out of a tourist shop in Killarney.

I would have to agree. It's a pity especially when Kerry have produced some lovely jerseys down the years

Absolutely including their most recent jersey prior to this.

Saw the Kerry jersey in the flesh today in Newbridge and it looks good, you don't really see the stags head at all.

The goalies jersey was nice and looked very semilar to a Tipp jersey.

Agree, was right behind the keeper in the first half and thought the jersey was a thing of beauty

Sound sweetspot, were you 1 of the lads that got the game delayed :-)

Fair play to ye on a great comeback in today's game, ye wiped out our midfield in the second half and if there was more injury time I'd say yed have bate us.
