WEXFORD GAA HAS unveiled its new away jersey, which promotes a positive mental health and wellbeing campaign.

In partnership with Tackle Your Feelings [TYF], the new O’Neill’s jersey will carry its logo on the back with headline sponsor Zurich Insurance on the front.

It will be worn by the men’s football and hurling teams at senior and U20 levels; its first outing will be in this Saturday’s Allianz Hurling League Division 1B clash against Antrim at Corrigan Park [live on TG4].

This will be the first GAA jersey to showcase a partnership with the TYF positive mental health and wellbeing initiative.

The TYF campaign is funded by the Zurich Foundation in partnership with Zurich Ireland, and run by Rugby Players Ireland, also operating in the AFL. It aims to reduce the stigma around mental health and provide people with the tools and resources to be more proactive in looking after their emotional wellbeing.

“The TYF partnership with Wexford GAA is the first step in a wider plan that will involve expansion of the initiative into the high-performing sports community in Ireland,” a statement reads.
