In another entry in our occasional 'Stubborn Refusal to Change Jerseys' category, we look at the lead-up to the 1967 Munster SHC final, when Clare were asked to change but decided not to. Read it here.
Some counties (Kilkenny or Dublin, for example) never have to change their jerseys, and while others are forced to do more regularly, it's still quite rare that a team has to wear three different kits in the same championship campaign.
Irish sportswear company O'Neills regularly adorn their garments with a three-striped design, which is usually the sole preserve of German giants adidas. Action was taken by adidas against O'Neills in 1980 in a bid to stop them using the three stripes and, when that case was lost, O'Neills also won when adidas appealed in 1982.
Today (August 21), Kerry meet Mayo in the All-Ireland football semi-final. Both counties have mainly green jerseys, Kerry with a gold hoop and Mayo a red one, but a change of colours has not always been required when they have met in the championship.
Here, we evaluate clashes between the counties since 1981, and also offer some suggestions as to how the problem may be circumvented.
