Sometimes shirts are memorable for events rather than the actual quality of the design or the results on the pitch. Here are some examples of memorable shirts from Ireland’s footballing history.
The 2010-11 away shirt became known also as “The Richard Dunne” after the defender’s number was drawn on with marker pen after a swap during a Euro 2012 qualifier in Moscow.
The 2002 World Cup home shirt is remembered for the delirium caused when Robbie Keane scored the last-minute equaliser against Germany and the subsequent 3-0 win against Saudi Arabia.
The 1994 away shirt had a striking design with orange edging to the green vertical stripes, as well as on the collar, and tremendous, fading green and white stripes. But the shirt is all the more iconic due to John Aldridge, at the 1994 World Cup in America. On camera, he called an official in a yellow hat, who bungled the substitutions, a "twat" during one of the all-time great touchline rants.
Ireland shirts have seen pinstripes and hoops, thick and thin, diagonal stripes, various shaped panels and a variety of graphics. But sometimes bold designs really do add something special that really works well, such as in the 1992-94 home shirt.
But perhaps the key to a really successful Ireland shirt is how well the green, white and orange of the tricolour are integrated into the design. And once orange became a strong element in the design, it is critical not to overdo it. Our suggested contenders for getting this right are the 2008-10 home shirt, the 2003-05 away shirt, and the 2016-18 home shirt.
