Jersey launch day at our Dublin Airport HQ

Representatives from Clare, Cork, Limerick and Wexford were at our HQ in Hangar 6, Dublin Airport this morning. Together with the GAA and GPA, we unveiled a one-of-a-kind customised playing kit for the Fenway Hurling Classic. The competition takes place at Fenway Park in Boston on November 18th, and we’re proud to be the Official Airline of the event.

The specially commissioned O’Neill’s jerseys have several unique design features which make them stand out from the four counties’ regular playing kit. These are:

  • Aer Lingus logo featuring on the jersey sleeve
  • GAA/GPA crest on front of jersey opposite county crest
  • ‘Fenway Hurling Classic 2018’ embroidered text under county crest

Clare’s Podge Collins, Cork’s Daniel Kearney, Limerick’s Tom Morrissey and Wexford’s Conor McDonald were the first players to have the opportunity to road-test the jerseys at today’s launch.

The Fenway Hurling Classic will see All-Ireland hurling champions Limerick compete against reigning holders Clare, Cork and Wexford in the Super 11s format. It will involve two semi-finals lasting 40 minutes, with the winners proceeding to the final on the same day, Sunday November 18th.

Aer Lingus will once again be the Official Airline of the event and we’ll be responsible for flying the four teams to Boston. The Fenway Hurling Classic will begin at 12.30 p.m. ET on November 18th and features a lively Irish festival complete with food, music and dancing. Over 30,000 attended the event in 2017 and tickets are now on sale at www.redsox.com/hurling. All three games will be broadcast on TG4 and GAAGO.
