This shirt was worn by Sean Thornton at the FIFA World Youth Championships in the United Arab Emirates in 2003. It is a white, away, short-sleeved shirt and has not been signed. There are several photos of the Irish team from this tournament below and there can be no doubt that this is where the shirt originates from. It was given to one of his friends shortly after the tournament and they subsequently sold it to me. The shirt differs from replica shirts because there is no sponsor's logo on the front: all Ireland replica shirts from 1992 onwards had a sponsor logo written on the front; shirts without a sponsor logo could not be bought in shops from this period onwards.
