UL Launch GAA's First Pride Jersey

The University of Limerick has launched a new GAA jersey, featuring the colours of Pride.

It's the first GAA club in the country to introduce such a kit, and it will be a permanent fixture on the shirt for years to come.

The jersey is a collaboration between the GAA club at the Limerick University and JIGSAW, the youth mental health service.

 

“The UL GAA Club has been in existence since the 1970s and I am very proud that our club jersey is the first in Ireland to feature the LGBTQ+ pride colours," says Professor Kerstin Mey, who is President of the University of Limerick.

"A university is the natural home of equality, diversity and inclusion. Students from all parts of the world, from a huge variety of different cultures, backgrounds, creeds, and orientations come together to learn, live, play sport and recreate on our campus.

"We work hard to ensure that the UL environment is such that our students leave us not only as successful graduates in their chosen discipline but as civic minded citizens with a global and inclusive mind set.”

The GAA has also been supportive of the move with the President of the Association Larry McCarthy saying. "Playing the game quickly eliminates barriers between teammates and teams, and the GAA is proud of its philosophy that sport is indeed for all. I commend the UL GAA Club in being to the fore in propagating the GAA mantra.”
