Years after hanging up his boots Paul Galvin continues to make a contribution to Kerry GAA.
The former Footballer of the Year was instrumental in the design of the new jersey.
The fashionable Finuge man was enlisted by the Kerry county board to aid O’Neills in creating the new strip.
The round neck design with a white shoulder stripe and white trim is a throwback to the geansaí worn by the greats of 1985 Kerry team.
Galvin explained how the Kerry County Board Chairman, Tim Murphy invited him to help design the new jersey.
"Following Tim’s brief and working alongside O’Neill’s’ design and production teams while implementing my own vision for the jersey, it has been a great collaborative experience.
"The new design is inclusive, rich in storytelling and strong in identity.
"Inspired by the iconic 1985 Kerry jersey, the deep green and gold base with white trims was essential to re-connecting with Kerry’s identity while also helping to implement part of the County Board’s vision for the future in addressing the issue of number visibility for supporters.
“The rich colour base and re-positioning of the number upwards provides greater definition and visibility of the numbers on the back. The slightly longer sleeves offer points of difference and style.
"We hope that past players will recognise the new jersey as a symbol of respect, that current players will wear it as a symbol of pride and identity and that future players will want to wear it.
