Dublin players Sinéad Goldrick, Liam Rushe, Bernard Brogan and Louise O’Hara posed in the official geansai, which carries the logo of new sponsor AIG.

The Dubs have signed a five-year deal with the insurance firm to replace Vodafone, which ended its relationship with Dublin last season.

GAA County Board chairman Andy Kettle said: “This sponsorship deal is a massive boost to Dublin GAA and all its clubs and members. The last few years have been very positive for Dublin GAA on and off the field but success cannot be achieved without the support of key partners.

"We are confident that Dublin fans will be proud to wear our latest jersey."

The Dubs’ thrilling win over Mayo in the All-Ireland football final on September 22 made them champions for the second time in three years. Meanwhile, Dublin's hurlers are Leinster champions  for the first time since 1961 and the ladies footballers are also the reigning provincial champions.

The jersey, which features a new rich shade of blue, is manufactured in Ireland by O’Neills, features “Koolite” fabric which allows breathability and removes moisture from the wearer’s body.
