Iconic hurling win celebrated in illustrated calendar

By Esther Hayden, an illustration site focussing on GAA, have launched their 2017 Calendar celebrating the glorious All-Ireland win by the Wexford hurlers back in 1996.

Each player is beautifully illustrated throughout and all come with a titbit about them to remind everyone of all of the Purple and Gold heroes.

Tom Doyle of Yellowbelly said: 'I wanted to create something that celebrated the 20th anniversary of Wexford's unforgettable win so I spent weeks illustrating the players and creating the 2017 calendar. We obviously don't mix up our medals with loose change in Wexford but we certainly look back even more fondly at the good times. I just hope we don't have to wait too long more for the next one.'

The Yellowbelly calendars are now on sale at for €20.
