Louth club GAA jerseys help champions Adare into Limerick football final

Louth club GAA jerseys help champions Adare into Limerick football final

CHAMPIONS Adare returned to the Limerick SFC final with a 1-5 to 1-4 win over Monaleen.

But the semi final's low scoring was just one of the talking points after the Mick Neville Park flood-lit game.

Many were inquisitive as to the Adare jerseys.

Both sides were required to change their strip due to a clash of colours and according to Adare manager Harry Gleeson, the club don't "don't have a second set". 

"The lads didn't particularly want to wear another Limerick club's jersey and I can understand that so, we looked at possibly wearing the UL jersey but then Stephen (Keeley) stepped up and brought them down from Drogheda and it was a privilege to wear them," explained Harry Gleeson.

So the jerseys were those of Oliver Plunketts GAA club in Drogheda, Co Louth - the native club of Adare midfielder Stephen Keeley.
