Children of Ireland tasked to design John West Feile na nGael Official jersey

Cork Senior Hurler Eoin Cadogan  joined John West, official sponsors of the national GAA Féile competitions as they announced a brand new partnership with O’Neills.

John West are handing over the design of this year’s official Féile jersey to the children of Ireland and calling on them to give their best to John West by designing their very own jersey and making their mark on Féile 2018.

The winning design will be chosen by a panel of expert judges, including GAA royalty Eoin Cadogan, and will then be produced and distributed as the official jersey for this year’s competitions. Cadogan will be the first person to wear this limited edition jersey at the official launch of this year’s Feile in April in Croke Park.

Speaking at the announcement, John West General Manager Peter Rooney said; “We are delighted to continue our Féile sponsorship in 2018.  It is a fantastic competition combining team-work & skill which provides an ideal platform to speak to families around Ireland around the importance of John West fish as a natural source of protein. We are looking forward to having Eoin on board as a John West ambassador for 2018 and to help us judge the competition, as no doubt choosing a winner will be very difficult.”

Designing the jersey is simple, anyone wishing to enter the competition can visit  O’Neills website and search for John West or log on to and let their creative juice flow. Once logged into the O’Neills website applicants can download the templated John West blank jersey and begin designing. There are no boundaries on the method in which the jerseys are designed, choose device or by hand – the sky is the limit! Once the design has been completed, all that is left to do is fill your details into the entry form and email your design to, entries will also be accepted by post.


The winner will not only have the honour of designing the official John West Féile jersey, they will also win a weekend trip to Killary Adventure Centre for all the family!

John West Féile ambassador and Cork hurler Eoin Cadogan added; “I am delighted to have come on board with John West as an ambassador of the Féile competitions – they are such an important part of a GAA player’s career and a great weekend to be a part of, I have so many brilliant memories of my Féile experiences”. He continued, “I would love to have designed my own Féile jersey and think it is an excellent way to get the children looking forward to the competitions and especially for the lucky winner who will see their jersey come to life! I can’t wait to see the design come in.”
