Irish Roll-neck Sweater

No. 5545




GIFT BOX: (Add $6 dollars).

All Ireland.

County Mayo, Ireland, 1967.

The boys from Mayo take on Meath at Croke Park. The All-Ireland semi-final was broadcast live for the second time ever.

With the score tied in the second half, the unspeakable occurred: For twenty minutes, television sets across Ireland went black. Friendly conversations in pubs turned chippy. Minor offenses, like bumping into another man’s stout, no longer went unnoticed. Even the most innocent of slights would snowball into chaos until…

…the signal came back.

But during the blackout, Meath scored two goals. People thought it was a mistake, a cruel ghost in the machine wreaking havoc on their fragile County Mayo psyche (as it pertains to football). Mayo lost by two goals, and the game lived on in infamy.

The glory days of the 50s, with players like Seán Flanagan and Henry Dixon, would have to wait. And wait they did.

Irish Roll-Neck Sweater (No. 5545). As authentically Irish as an All-Ireland semi-final. 100% breathable, water-absorbing Aran wool. Rolled neckline, sleeves, and bottom hem. Unlined. Made in County Mayo, Ireland.
