Going GAA GAA for pink ladies

It's competition time! Hoorah! Those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook  you will have seen this yesterday as I launched my first big blog competition in association with Finns Corner Sports in Cork. Myself and Finns had been in contact for some bit in organising a giveaway and details were finalised yesterday afternoon. I was delighted to become a brand ambassador for the sports shop to launch the new pink Cork ladies GAA  jersey for them and run a competition with the help of Cork footballer and all-star (and all round nice guy) Colm O'Neill.

For my international readers, the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) is the founding body of the two national sports of Ireland; Hurling and Gaelic Football. I have been an avid Cork GAA supporter for some time now so it makes sense to give someone something associated with something I love.

There are a few terms and conditions however so please give the below a read (even though it's free to enter). The competition closes on the 14/06/13. You can enter via Twitter or Facebook.

Competition participants must 'Like' my Yucky Duck Fashion Facebook page. The participants are then required to 'Like' the picture of myself and Colm inside Finn's store (as seen above) and 'share' it with their friends. Please note that the 'share' option may not be available on your mobile phone. However, you can share it on your laptop/ computer/ other

Competition participants must 'Follow' my Yucky Duck Fashion on Twitter. The participants are then  required to 'Retweet' the picture of myself and Colm (as seen above) inside Finn's store to their own followers.

**IMPORTANT** the winner will be contacted on the 15/06/13. The winner will be required to produce evidence that they have done all the qualification tasks (either on Facebook or Twitter) to be rewarded the prize. This is due to privacy procedures on Facebook / Twitter which may result in me not being able to view your 'Like' or 'Share' on my photo or my page. If the winner can not produce evidence to prove that he/she had done all the qualification tasks PRIOR to the competition closure, their entry will be disqualified and another winner will be selected. The prize can not be posted to the winner. It must be collected from Finns Corner within one week of the competition closure. Prize relates to the pink Cork ladies GAA '13 jersey only and can not be exchanged for another product. No cash alternative.

I'm really loving my new jersey courtesy of Finns and styled it yesterday with how I would like to wear it to this years games. I had been one of the unfortunate purchasers of the initial pink jersey last year when it was launched by 02, only to see team sponsorship subsequently change one year later. While I'm not going to advocate to anyone who has the previous jersey, the newer one definitely has a better design, fit and has less of a 'jersey' look.  

I themed my jewelled Rihanna for River Island 'snap-back' or trucker cap (Available Here for €40) along with my black Kooples joggers and high top trainers for a more urban than 'WAG' feel. When I was researching what I previously wore to matches (before the launch of the ladies jersey) I came across this photo taken by the Evening Echo back in September 2005.
It was my second successive All -Ireland hurling final attendance and my friend and I had made a banner to hold up behind the goals in the Canal End stand. In case your wondering what it said, it reads; 'Cork Girls want a SCORE!' I was 17 at the time, and it definitely was one of my Yucky Duck days. But a fantastic day it most certainly was! Corcaigh Abu!
Best of luck to everyone who enters my competition! If you have any questions regarding the terms and conditions please do not hesitate in asking them! Please keep sharing the photo with your friends and thank you to all who have entered so far!
Until next time Ducklings,
Love Vera Xx
