Nominees: Limerick’s Best ever GAA Jersey


Earlier this week we asked the Limerick Public to suggest their favourite Limerick GAA jersey of all time to which they duly obliged.

With the shortlist now whittled down to eight, here are the final contenders which will be decided through a series of polls on Instagram and Twitter over the coming days!

Below are the nominees!

1996 Home Jersey

White collar and sponsor Shaws in block capitals emblazoned across the from. A Limerick classic that deserved an All-Ireland.


Back to basics.
