One of the most iconic jerseys in Irish sport is getting a new twist in 2018.

The black and amber stripes that have adorned the Kilkenny jersey are getting a slight alteration next season, with the top of the stripes replaced with a new all-black look.

Kilkenny supporters will be hoping that the new jersey represents a change in fortunes for Brian Cody's men after a disappointing 2017 that saw them eliminated in the qualifiers by Waterford.

The Cats were also left without an All Star representative for the first time since 2013.

What do you think of the new design?
