New B4B GAA Jersey!

Bee For Battens are delighted to announce the launch of their new Oslo GAA training kit.

 

The new jersey, which is modelled here by multi All Ireland winning  Colm "the Gooch" Cooper Kerry Senior Football Captain & Ladies Captain Bernie Breen. The charity also has the original jerseys, which we launched last year in partnership with Oslo GAA, Norway.

Back then we entered into the history books of Croke Park, by having the charity’s distinctive bumble bee logo featured on the club team’s new kit. Oslo GAA is one of 51 GAA associations in Europe officially recognised by GAA headquarters. The team kit can be seen here.

GAA president, Liam O Neill launched the attractive jersey at GAA headquarters last year, on the pitch of Croke Park along with representatives of Bee For Battens & Oslo GAA. Two very willing celebrities, namely Kerry’s All Ireland Winning Captain Darran O’Sullivan & Celebrity Bainisteoir & former Miss Universe - Ireland, Rozanna Purcell, modelled the jersey but it was four-year-old Liam Heffernan, a Batten Disease sufferer, who stole the show, as he enjoyed the freedom of Irelands largest Stadium, along with his toy Dinosaur “Long-Neck”.
 
This initiative of using our affiliation with the GAA, is being run to create awareness of Batten Disease, which took the life of Kerry Native Saoirse Heffernan last year and which also, affects Tony & Mary Heffernan’s only other child Liam, (4) and several other children in Ireland. Each supporter’s jersey also features the number 5 on the back, which Oslo GAA decided to do as a mark of respect for Saoirse, who passed away at the tender age of 5 years in 2011.

The Jersey which is available in Childrens, Ladies and Gents Sizes can be ordered by emailing info@SaoirseFoundation.com or by calling 083 00 444 44

The Jerseys cost just €25 for childrens, and €35 for the larger sizes. P&P is included in the price to anywhere in Ireland, Overseas Orders which are very polular, can be sent at cost price.

Stock is limited, however we can take orders and post them too. Also we would suggest that you order childrens sizes are year "older" than what you would normally put on your child.

Thanks for Supporting Bee for Battens and for helping us to Make Positive Life Impacts For Sick Children
