Cúl Sliotars vintage collection GAA jerseys launched in support of Hurling for Cancer Research

May 03, 2021

Three-time champion jockey Davy Russell and back-to-back Aintree Grand National winner Tiger Roll launch the Cúl Sliotars vintage GAA jersey collection for Hurling for Cancer Research.

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.
