Memories

TRANSATLANTIC

TRANSATLANTIC is inspired by a photo taken aboard the St Louis ocean liner en route to New York. Taken in 1931 it features the Kerry football team training on deck, as emigrant passengers watch on. The Transatlantic jersey range aims to connect the Irish diaspora of New York with their games and culture from home. 

The Transatlantic print jersey carries an exact replica print of the St Louis and strives to create that same connection between Irish diaspora and culture.

The iconic 1932 Los Angeles Summer Olympics were held in the 101,000 capacity LA Coliseum. It was a momentous games for Ireland, winning two gold medals. Dr Pat O Callaghan won gold in the hammer-throwing event, and Bob Tisdall won gold in the 400 metre hurdles. The 1932 Games also saw Kerryman Eamon Fitzgerald compete in the triple jump where he finished 4th despite a serious heel injury. Fitzgerald was an accomplished footballer winning All Irelands with Kerry. He contracted tuberculosis shortly before he was due to marry in 1958 and died in Dublin without family aged 53.

His life-story was lost until re-discovered by Weeshie Fogarty as he cycled through Fitzgerald’s home place of Castlecove on the Ring Of Kerry in 2001. Further research led to the discovery of Fitzgerald’s grave in Deansgrange Cemetery, Dublin in 2004, where it lay lost for decades. 

The LA/32 jersey carries a print taken from the official entry ticket to the LA Coliseum & remembers Ireland’s early Olympic legacy.

The PLACES jersey remembers the military service given by GAA players. Our original camouflage print is comprised of old military maps of Ireland, Munster, Kerry and Tralee, places fought for by footballers, hurlers and soldiers. There is a long history of military service associated with GAA players in every county across the country. This jersey remembers their place, their names and their service.

ROADS

The relationship between athlete and road is profound. Athletes build a relationship with the concrete grey of the roads and routes they pound chasing their d dreams. , building muscle memory as they go. Regular runners will notice that roadways all over urban Ireland carry the names of athletes, footballers, hurlers, soldiers, writers and significant Irish cultural figures  whose deeds transcended their time. We drive, walk, run & cycle upon these named roads every day, but we have long forgoteen the people after whom they are named. 

The concrete grey and arrow print of the Roads jersey salutes the daily grind of every day athlete, incorporates the road signage that guides their way and remembers the icons who led the way and laid the foundations of our culture.
