Following criticism of the €150 price tag that is attached with it, Limerick GAA is coming under pressure to cut the cost of a one-off jersey.
The Limerick Hurlers are selling a training jersey that is part of a limited edition in order to raise money for the yearly trip that they take as a team.
The jaw-dropping price of €150 was originally set for the O’Neills jersey that the players would wear during pregame warmups for the league games that will take place the following year.
You will get a letter from Kiely and captain Declan Hannon, as well as a Limerick GAA beanie hat and the opportunity to have your name printed on the back of the jersey.
Limerick GAA issued a statement this afternoon addressing the criticism it has received and announcing that the price would be decreased to €100.
In response to the concerns raised by Limerick GAA supporters over the exorbitant cost of the new Limerick GAA training jersey, the association has issued a statement. Proceeds from the sale of the uniform will go into the vacation fund for the Limerick Senior Hurling Team.
Plans for a celebration trip for the winning hurling players, management, support staff, and spouses have been in the works since they won the All-Ireland final and completed a perfect treble. This is done as a token of appreciation for the effort and commitment required to win an All-Ireland championship.
Every week, players, coaches, and support staff devote many hours to winning the GAA championship, the sport’s most prestigious individual award. As such, the team’s vacation serves as a thank-you for all of the hard work and dedication, not only from the members but also from their significant others.
The rising price of foreign travel means that a team vacation for all the players, coaches, and management staff, plus their spouses, may easily cost tens of thousands of dollars. The whole of the bill will be covered by the Limerick County Board. To help defray some of these costs, a special jersey-buying opportunity was made available. Therefore far this year, the squad has not taken a vacation together.
Each subscriber’s name will be stitched into a special jersey that the team will wear throughout the next season. Each subscriber will get a letter from team manager John Kiely and captain Declan Hannon, a beanie hat, and the custom-made jersey with their name sewn into the cloth.
Limerick GAA has been mindful of the present economic climate and has worked to keep the initiative’s costs as low as feasible. Nonetheless, we have listened to the criticism from our dedicated followers, and as a result, we can officially announce that the price will be lowered to €100.
We will get in contact with anyone who made purchases at the old pricing to provide a refund for the price difference in the following days.
Limerick GAA wishes to thank our very dedicated fan base for their continued support and looks forward to an exciting 2023 season.
