I could live with the mid drift stripes then.

Not sure what the thing on the back is.
Eslo fidelis is Latin for be faithful. Thanks Google. Offaly is the faithful county

Ironic, given the treatment of some recent hurling managers.

Nice top - apart from having both 'JIGSAW' and 'OFFALY' on the back. Too busy looking - one or the other. Also, Offlay should be in the irish spelling.
There is something about the sleeves that makes it looks like a parts bin special though.

Offaly is the same template as Sligo's jersey this year, it's a good one in fairness.

Can't wait to see it in the crowd at Wimbedon or following Lowry in Augusta!
There should be a competition to see the most outrageous place we can get a county jersey in camera view

The Sligo jersey is completely different?

It has those dark lines from the torso down, the three stripes on the shoulders and a similar collar, there are some differences but it's largely the same.

The Offaly top is nice when judged in isolation but it's far too similar to others out there to get too excited about.

O'Neill's really seem to want to get the value off their current template. Every county bar Dublin have the same round collar with the tree stripes partially running down the sleeves. It looked the part when Kerry were the first county that adopted it but now every team has it.

It wouldn't kill O'Neill's to have some variety.

The lad in Azerbaijan or wherever it was driving a tractor wearing a Rockwell Tyrone jersey has to hard to beat in fairness!

There was a chap in England about ten years ago who killed his kids. No Irish connection ever made, but in one of the family photos one of the children is wearing an Arnotts Dubs jersey.

Hardly a reason to kill the young in fairness …...

There's a bar in a sketchy area of Bogota with Roscommon shirts on the wall.
