The jersey is manufactured by O’Neills, retains the red and green combination along with an embossed Mayo GAA crest on the lower back of the jersey.

The jersey will incorporate the Intersport Elverys brand for the first time. Today’s launch took place at Elverys MacHale Park in Castlebar.

Speaking at the launch Mayo GAA manager Stephen Rochford said;

“There is a huge sense of pride in playing for Mayo and representing your community on the national stage. The jersey is a hugely important symbol of that.

“It is to wear this jersey that players across the county put their lives on hold for 10 out of 12 months in every year, for the chance of playing and winning for Mayo.
