A NEW collection of Limerick GAA merchandise marking the panel’s fine All-Ireland win will not be out until next month.
And buying officially is the only way to support the development of our Liam MacCarthy winning side.
In the aftermath of Limerick’s win at Croke Park over Galway, a number of web sites and shops began to sell unofficial green jerseys and associated goods showing Limerick’s name.
Kilmallock man Mike O’Riordan, the secretary of Limerick’s County Board said: “We will be preparing our merchandise ready for the Christmas market. We are in the process of finalising the Season of Sundays book for Limerick. You will have the official Limerick calendar, we have various other items coming through the recognised provider which will be Croke Park, and its commercial department.”

Sportsfile’s Season of Sundays book will be an official Limerick GAA backed publication with some profits going to the team holiday fund. It will be 168 pages.
The official hurling calendar will also be a Sportsfile production, and cost €9.95. Neither are expected in the shops before mid-October.
“All garments in relations to t-shirts and jerseys will be provided through O'Neills. These are the only official ones,” he confirmed.
All the money made from sales of the shirts and other goods will go back into the player development fund which is used to help the current crop of hurlers, and the stars of the future.
The Liam MacCarthy Cup continued its tour of the county last week, taking in St Patrick’s GAA Club, Kildimo/Pallaskenry, Knockaderry, as well as Galbally National School, where manager John Kiely started his education.
It also took in Kilfinane, and went to the Abbey School in Tipperary Town, where Mr Kiely is working as the principal of the school.
