Now there's a Dublin version of that 1916 commemorative jersey for all you true blue Easter Rising fans

A rubble-surrounded GPO now adorns the front of the jersey.

LAST MONTH, YOU’LL remember, the good people behind Ireland’s most widely worn GAA attire had come up with a jersey to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Rising.

It had rubble, it had a proclamation that stretched all the way from the shoulder blades to the butt crack, it was green and so it was possibly the most patriotic garment in the history of the state.

Well, lent is on and Easter is coming fast so O’Neill’s have doubled down on that slam-dunk of a design by giving it a Dublin makeover.

Yes, for those of you who love history €55 will buy you a blue version, with the addition of a post-Rebellion General Post Office to adorn the torso.

Where would you wear this sort of thing? Out, or Out out?
