A Sponsor For Ireland

It was announced recently that 3 mobile were no longer going to be Ireland’s football shirt sponsor. So we scoured the country to find the best candidates for Ireland’s next top shirt sponsor.


Obvious choice, who better to lead Ireland into a new era than Mr. Tayto. May actually be a good option to run the FAI in future. Just stay away from Sad Mr. Tayto.

Brennans Bread

Today’s Bread Today to lead the Boys and Girls in Green into a new tomorrow. Why not just combine the bread and crisps and have the team sponsored by Crisp sandwiches.


Club Orange

Add a bit of Orange to the national jersey, and have little orange bits floating around the kit.

Barry’s Tea

Surely something tea related would be viable.


Michael D Higgins Tea Cosies


Who in their right mind wouldn’t buy a jersey with a Miggle D Tea Cosy on it.

A Wooden Spoon

What better way to stir up fear into our opponents than a wooden spoon (provided they grew up in Ireland in or before the 90’s).

Waterford Crystal

We’ll be the most elegant team not to qualify for the 96 team World Cup.


Partially Deflated Balls

If we want to get to a first World Cup since 2002 we have to think like we’re in 2002.

The Stickit Inn

A place of affluent business from two of Ireland’s best role models.

Arse Biscuits

Fitting for the FAI mess.

Ballon p’Or: The alternative Ballon D’or. 20 – 11

We’re making our own Ballon d’Or excluding players that were in the top 30 and 20 of the men’s and women’s list respectively. Plenty of LOI & WNL bias.

If you missed numbers 30 – 21 click here.

Now into the Top 20…

20. Andy Robertson (Scotland/Liverpool)

Came out of nowhere to be a key player for Liverpool.

19. Alan Mannus (Northern Ireland/Shamrock Rovers)

Huge part in winning Shamrock Rovers the Cup for the first time in 32 years.

18. David Parkhouse (Northern Ireland/Derry City)

Fantastic season for the young striker.

17. Jan Oblak (Slovenia/Atletico Madrid)

Best Goalkeeper who will not be at the Euros next summer. One of the best players to have never played at the finals of a major international tournament.

16. Eugenie Le Sommer (France/Lyon)

Key player for France at this years World Cup.

15. Cristiane (Brazil/Sao Paulo)

Scorer of the goal of the tournament at this years World Cup.

14. Michael Duffy (Ireland/Dundalk)

Superstar. Should play for the National team soon.

(Michael Duffy played for the Northern Irish underage sides but has since declared for the Republic of Ireland)

13. Kylie Murphy (Ireland/Wexford Youths)

Read this article from the42.ie. The interview explains it all.

12. Hugh Douglas (Ireland/Bray Wanderers [Now at Drogheda United])

Probably heading in a last minute winner as we speak. Ron’s devastated he’s gone from Bray, great addition to Drogs.

11. Chris Shields (Ireland/Dundalk)

Probably the best defensive midfielder in the League of Ireland. Chris’Golo KantShields.

Come back tomorrow for the top 10.
