“We have a strong track record in providing teamwear across Ireland and beyond and welcome the Orchard County, our home county to the McKeever brand with immense pride.
“Our goal in securing the full licensing suite back in early March was to bring freshness, innovation and excellent service to our county teams as we progress into a new decade.
“We are delighted that the Armagh County Board have recognised our endeavours and we are committed to delivering superior quality, high performance teamwear. We are confident that the new McKeever range will help the Armagh Panel deliver on their commitment to strengthen player and community pride, respect and success on and off the field’.
“We look forward to signing more LGFA, Camogie and Mens Inter-county teams to our growing cohort and plan to try and shake things up at county level in the GAA over the coming years.”

Bringing new innovative and manufacturing expertise, McKeever Sports have been a pleasure to work with from the outset and have set the new partnership up for success.
