Dublin GAA Team wear Benetti Suits, available at Tom Murphy Menswear
Dublin GAA Team wear Benetti Suits, as displayed in Croke Park on the 1st of October, the Dublin football team are champions on the pitch while during their post match celebrations at the Gibson Hotel they showed that they’re champions in style off the pitch too. As seen in the picture above each member of the victorious outfit sported a suave 3 piece Benetti suit. The blue check is subtle and cleverly exhibits the county colours in a tasteful fashion.
Rivals on the field but united in fashion as Benetti is also the official suit supplier to the Mayo team. Mayo came agonisingly close to lifting the ‘curse’ which has seen them reach 8 finals since 1989 and losing them all. It was level in the 40th when minute when Mayo goalkeeper, Robert Hennelly came out to collect a Dublin delivery that fell short. However, he lost control of the ball, spilling it to Paddy Andrews, who was dragged down as he prepared to shoot for goal.
Hennelly was black-carded for the offence by referee, Maurice Deegan, who awarded Dublin a penalty. Diarmuid Connolly fired the spot kick past sub goalkeeper, David Clarke, giving Dublin a three-point lead.
It would later be cut to two points on four occasions, but Mayo just couldn’t draw level as Dublin’s rearguard held out under intense pressure.
Like the Dublin team, Benetti as a brand has become a leader in its own field and its clear to see why, the suit shown is impeccably tailored for the All Ireland Champions. Cut in an elegant contemporary fit which compliments the physique of athletes in such exemplary condition.
As the holders of the Sam Maguire the men from the capital will, for another year, be the ambassadors for the GAA at home and abroad and Benetti the ambassadors for Irish Menswear.
