Kieran Kingston's charges will wear old-style blue jerseys, as they did 100 years ago, before they switched to red.

The collarless blue jerseys have a large 'C' at the front and will go on sale later this week, despite the fact that the kit will only be worn once by the team.

O'Neill's have already released a commemorative 1916 jersey which displays the proclamation.

Southern Star sports editor Kieran McCarthy tweeted the first images of the kit last night. See below:
