The Shannonsiders are set to honour Limerick’s storied football heritage and return to their traditional colour of blue.

Treaty United have announced that the club’s senior and academy teams will line out in the colour blue in 2024.

The club was founded in 2020 and rose from the ashes of its predecessor - Limerick F.C., who left the League of Ireland senior ranks the same year due to financial troubles. 

Since then Treaty United have worn red and white striped jerseys in tribute to the first Limerick senior football sides who did the same in 1937. 

However, in 1943 came the change to the colour blue which has since become synonymous with senior football in Limerick.

Speaking to, CEO Ciara McCormack spoke about the symbolic milestone for the Limerick club.

“One of the things that we have said, and was most important to us coming in, was that we wanted to give local fans a voice,” she said.

“The home strip being blue was a loud message we heard and with this in mind we are excited to have Treaty wear blue at home for the 2024 season.”

The new Treaty United home kit is made by O’Neill’s and will be previewed at the 2024 season launch taking place on 7 February.

Treaty United manager Tommy Barrett has described the kit as the “best designed Limerick senior soccer kits that I have seen”. 

The new kit is set to make its debut when Treaty kick off their First Division campaign against Cobh Ramblers at Markets Field on the 16th February. 

Elsewhere in the League of Ireland, Derry City will be without a key player for the beginning of the season.
