EXCLUSIVE: London Irish unveil their 2017 St Patrick's Party jersey

1 February 2017

London Irish are delighted to unveil their limited edition jersey for the 2017 St Patrick’s Party which will be worn when Cornish Pirates visit the Madejski Stadium on Saturday 18th March (kick-off 2pm).

Available to pre-order now by clicking here, the jersey is inspired by nine-year-old Shaun Egan who is this year’s winner of the St Patrick’s Party design competition. His original design incorporating the famous Celtic Knot with the London Irish shamrock is a white pattern that runs up the front of the shirt, over the shoulder and down the back.

Produced by O’Neills®, the jersey is only available while stocks last so supporters are advised to pre-order theirs now to avoid disappointment. Supporters will also receive a free gift with every jersey pre-ordered. The deadline for pre-ordering is 17th February.

London Irish Chief Executive Bob Casey said: “Every year there is always a real sense of excitement surrounding the launch of our St Patrick’s Party jersey and this year has been no different.

“Our young designer Shaun Egan has inspired the design of this year’s jersey, a design which I’m sure our supporters will like.

“The St Patrick’s Party promises to be a fantastic event as we all come together to enjoy the craic when Cornish Pirates visit the Madejski Stadium.

“The iconic clash has created some memorable moments down the years and we’re expecting an electric atmosphere throughout the day.”

The traditional St Patrick's Party fixture will include all-day entertainment, including the final round of the 2017 RBS 6 Nations live on big screens around the stadium.

With live music from the Bible Code Sundays and Paul Bowen plus the famous Irish Dancers, this is a party not to be missed. Guinness will also be on tap as you celebrate the day with the black stuff.

For the kids, Digger's Pound will be open throughout the day with a bouncy castle, free face painting and many more activities to keep the little ones busy.
