All Ireland final day, 1893. A mixture of nerves and excitement filled the air. The Selskar Young Ireland’s team of Wexford, led by captain Tom Hayes set off from their beloved town in search of victory. Could they do it? Could they be the first Wexford team to win the All-Ireland?
After making their way to Dublin with a rally of supporters ready to cheer them on, the team stepped onto the pitch at Phoenix Park and prepared for battle against Cork opponents, Dromtariffe. The adrenaline kicked in. An All-Ireland Senior Football Championship title was up for grabs, and they were not going to let it out of their sight. Selskar Young Ireland’s were awarded the victory and crowned All-Ireland champions. It was Wexford’s first All-Ireland success. A feeling of pride swept over the county, which remains to this day.

When you live in Ireland with extremely unpredictable weather from one hour to the next (never mind between months), a selection of jackets is a must to see you through the seasons.
Light-weight or padded, hooded or sleeveless, the options are endless. One to wear to training, one to wear on formal occasions. A light coloured one, a dark coloured one. A ‘good’ one and an old one to throw on to walk the dog.
While some teenagers seem oblivious to the cold, the rest of us couldn’t cope without a warm and cosy coat to keep out the chill (as well as the wind and

Can you feel the chill in the air? Autumn has arrived and Winter isn’t far away. The change in seasons is welcomed by many, with the start of crisp mornings, dark evenings and cosy nights in front of the fire. But these seasons can be tricky to dress for, with low temperatures and unpredictable weather conditions. An update in our daily wardrobe essentials is required to be prepared for what the Autumn and Winter seasons have in store for us - wind, rain and dare we say snow. The days of vests and shorts are behind us with a need for all garments warm and cosy. It’s time for Autumn layers and Winter warmers. Layering is key to dressing practically for Autumn and Winter. Building an outfit from multiple layers offers versatility so you are prepared for changeable weather conditions, and outer layers can be removed when not required.
There’s nothing else like it. For a few days in September, we all head off to our happy place and think of nothing but ‘Irish food, farming and culture’ and have the best of craic. It’s safe to say we are all glad to see the National Ploughing Championship return for the first time since 2019. The iconic O’Neills Ploughing jerseys are also back for the 2022 edition! So, if you have a tractor-mad child or an animal lover at home, you can be sure we have got something to suit everyone!
