County Carlow Football Club Launches New Jersey
After 142 years in existence, County Carlow Football Club has taken to the pitch with a new jersey design. The brand new design was introduced to club members and club sponsors at a special launch event in the Oakpark Clubhouse on Saturday 7th November.
Leinster Rugby players Bryan and Edward Byrne and Tom Daly were at the launch, all three are former players for the local side and competed at underage for the club. Branch president Robert Mc Donnell and Des Kavanagh from the IRFU were also there to enjoy the launch.
The new design may have already brought a bit of luck Carlow’s way after a rocky start to the league this season their J1 and J2 sides sporting the new ‘slant’ had a double victory over Newbridge in Division 2A.
Designed by Carlow’s Mark Elmes, the new jersey retains the traditional Carlow black and amber colours but the black stripes are bolder and at a slant instead of the traditional hoops. The ladies team have also opted for the slant and will play this season in black and pink.
Carlow Rugby Club President Pat Slater said that “The new jerseys will give the Carlow teams a younger more modern appearance and that the Club sponsors will feature on the redesigned jerseys.”
Main sponsor Netwatch were on hand to receive a framed jersey CEO David Walsh said “Here at Netwatch, we’re very proud of our status as a Carlow company and we are extremely proud sponsors of the Carlow Rugby Club. The Club is an integral part of Carlow’s community and builds qualities in their players such as teamwork, determination and focus which are also reflected in Netwatch’s ethos so there is a true alignment and synergy between the two organisations”.
Sponsors on the night included: Netwatch, Kevin Kelly’s Pharmacy, Ewing’s Bar, Munnellys Garage, Arboretum Home & Garden Heaven, Carpe Diem Bar, Hard Metal Machine Tools, Sheehy Motors Volkswagen. Each sponsor was presented with a framed jersey as a token of thanks from the club for their sponsorship and support.
