Mystery Of Guilfoyle’s Missing U-21 Clare Jersey Solved 35 Years Later

One of the greatest mysteries of Clare GAA appears to have been solved.

35 years have passed since The Clare Champion first reported on the saga of Tommy Guilfoyle’s missing jersey, but thanks to the power of social media, the famed number 14 jersey has been found.

The background to the story was first outlined in the Clare Champion in the aftermath of Clare’s loss to Tipperary in the 1985 Munster U-21 Final, with the Feakle man lining out on the edge of the square.

 

The story reemerged in recent days after a picture of the article was posted online with Guilfoyle’s daughter Lauren posting a public appeal for information.

Her tweet gained traction, and eventually led to the most infamous jersey being discovered safely in the hands of Tipperary man Micheál Scully.

It is not yet known if Mr Scully will reunite either Guilfoyle, or Clare GAA with the jersey.
