Pics: Kilkenny Have Made A Big Change To Their Jersey For 2018


O’Neills have released images of the new Kilkenny GAA jersey for next season and it is certainly something different. 

Ahead of the 2018 season, Kilkenny launched the new kit in association with famed kit maker O’Neills on Saturday at Nowlan Park.

In a step away from the traditional and straightforward black and amber stripes, there has been adjustments to the design of the jersey.

The top of the shirt is predominantly black, as are the sleeves. Three amber stripes run through the sleeves and the main body of the jersey will look familiar to followers of the Cats as the old school stripes remain in place.

Take a look for yourself below:

Cillian Buckley and Walter Walsh were on hand to model the new design on Friday and Brian Cody was present to stamp his seal of approval on the change of style.

Cody, along with the people of Kilkenny, will be hoping that the new kit will see a return to good fortunes on the field, having had a disappointing 2017 campaign. After coming up short to Tipperary in the 2016 All-Ireland final this was succeeded by losing to Wexford in Leinster and Waterford in the qualifiers this year. Drastic improvements are needed if the Noresiders are to be considered amongst the favourites to lift Liam MacCarthy in 2018.

Perhaps the new look may inspire a re-energisation on the field, but for now it is fair to say that this kit may take a bit of getting used to.
