London Irish launch their 2018 St Patrick’s Party jersey

London Irish launch their 2018 St Patrick’s Party jersey

London Irish are delighted to unveil their limited edition jersey for this year’s St Patrick’s Party, which will be worn against Gloucester at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday 24 March (kick-off 3pm).

Manufactured by XBlades and available to pre-order exclusively now from our online store, a sublimated subtle shamrock design features on the front and back of the jersey, paying homage to the club’s Celtic roots. The St Patrick’s Day logo is also embellished on the reverse of the jersey to mark the occasion.

The two-toned green hoop design is a throwback to the jersey worn during the 2015 St Patrick’s Party fixture when the Exiles defeated Newcastle Falcons 22-21.

London Irish back row and former Ireland Under-20 international Conor Gilsenan took part in a promotional photo shoot as the excitement builds towards the big day.

“I love the design and the feel of the new jersey,” said Gilsenan, 24.

“I particularly like the use of the shamrock, which is a twist on previous designs and I’m sure our supporters can’t wait to wear their colours with pride.”

XBlades chief executive Lee Jenkinson said: “When we first partnered with London Irish, one of the concepts we were particularly excited about was the opportunity to design the St Patrick’s Party jersey.

“The launch of the jersey is one of the most eagerly anticipated dates in the London Irish calendar and we are delighted to play a part in producing a jersey that the supporters can be proud of.”
