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.

9. Gary Rogers (Ireland/Dundalk)

After this seasons exploits he’s now made the most appearances of any League of Ireland player in European games.

A revelation at Shamrock Rovers and Ireland’s new creative dynamo in midfield.

6. Robbie Benson (Ireland/Dundalk [Now at St. Patrick’s Athletic])

Great addition to St. Pat’s and by all accounts a very nice man.
