Speaking at the launch, County Chairperson John Keenan looked forward to the incoming year, saying:

“Working with all stakeholders including our players, officials, O’Neill’s and our team sponsors, Specialist Joinery Group, we are happy to present our new look for 2014 and are confident that this will be a big success with our supporters. I would urge supporters and players alike to wear the new jersey with pride as we enter the coming year.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kieran Kennedy and all the staff at O’Neill’s Sportswear for their help and continued support of Gaelic games in our county. We are delighted with the continued support of our team sponsors Specialist Joinery Group and look forward to another mutually beneficial season.

“Specialist Joinery Group operate on a global basis and are an inspirational story of success within our local manufacturing and construction industry.
