    Our special limited edition Commemoration jersey marks the 100th Anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising.

    2016 is a momentous year. It marks the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising; a significant event that can be attributed as a defining moment in the struggle for Irish Independence and the foundation of modern Ireland. The Rising, which began with the reading of the Proclamation 'Poblacht na hÉireann' by Pádraig Pearse, was amongst a number of events that occurred during the tumultuous period 1912 – 1923.
