The collaboration we have been looking for, yes it’s finally arrived… ACF X Thomas Ashe… Who?
So a couple of months ago, around Halloween, my football team won a championship final, it was the biggest day in our Clubs 112 year history. The celebrations rolled early into the next morning. As it was Halloween there were lots of houses decorated, some more so than others. One particular house had a innocent skeleton sitting on the seat by the main road into the village. In the midst of the celebrations the poor skeleton vanished! The owners raised the alarms the next morning. A Facebook message had been posted asking for information about the skeletons whereabouts. In the meantime the skeleton appeared in the local pub early the next morning. He must of heard about the rollover session.
The skeleton was the life of the party. Nicknamed Thomas Ashe (The name of the football clubs founder) he quickly became the teams mascot and even had his own instagram page https://www.instagram.com/thomasashertl/ which shows just how great a night he had.
His popularity grew and grew gaining hundreds of followers over the weekend. A great source of entertainment as club supporters young and old were joining him for photos all night!
The skeleton was eventually returned but we both a replacement, which now travels with us whenever we have a big game… or session.
To celebrate our new mascot I collaborated with Thomas to bring you this limited edition jersey. The jersey is €40. All profits of which are donated to Temple Street Children’s Hospital. Over 20 jerseys have been sold so far raising nearly €400 for Temple Street with that number set to rise.
Stay tuned for some more collaborations…
