The IRFU and Canterbury have revealed the jerseys that Ireland will wear at Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan.

Both jerseys share the same basic design template as the new England shirts revealed last week, complete with the V-neck crossover collar, prominent colour slashes on the bottom of the design, and on the sleeve cuffs.

The home shirt is another quite clean and classic design, with a twin-striped pattern on the collar and a contrasting shoulder section with what appears to be Ogham (an ancient Irish written language) sublimated into it.

The alternate shirt, on the other hand, is about as far from clean and classic as anything else we’ve seen at this World Cup.

A baffling blend of a black top section blended with a green and white speckled pattern on the bottom section that once again features small specks of Ogham script… it’s certainly memorable.

Ireland will wear their new 2019/20 jerseys for the first time for their World Cup warm-up matches against Wales, while the World Cup versions will debut in Japan.

One thought on “NEWS: Ireland Rugby reveal Rugby World Cup 2019 jerseys

  1. Just to state a fact about this Ireland jersey design, the Ogham inscription sublimated onto the jersey spells as “Aontacht”, which in Irish means “Unity”.
