Click HERE to be taken to the Kickstarter campaign page - Let's make this deck happen!!!

We are delighted to let you all know that we are now LIVE on Kickstarter!!

 


For anyone unfamiliar with Kickstarter, it is a 'crowdfunding' platform where creators (that'll be us) basically tout their wares, and backers (hopefully, you) pledge money to make their idea a reality. If enough backers pledge and enough funds are raised then the creator begins the process of bringing their ideas to life. So, in effect, these decks do not exist right now, but with your support I am hoping to get these printed and into your hands within months after the Kickstarter campaign ends.

This is a completely unique deck of playing cards, designed by us, here in County Antrim.

We have designed every card from the ground up by taking the all-time top 13 Irish Counties in the sports of Hurling, Camogie, Football & Ladies Football and assigned them each to a card.

Spades = Hurling
Diamonds = Ladies Football
Clubs = Football
Hearts = Camogie

 

We've replicated the jerseys of each County and added various pieces of equipment used in each sport.

Every card features the jersey, the County name and sport in English, the County nickname with year of foundation, and the County name and sport in Irish, and we have added the Gaelic pitch markings as the backdrop to the cards.

The card backs showcase hurls, footballs, hurling/camogie helmets, sliotars and even football gloves. Printed in green and white, the backs reflect the colours of Ireland in pretty much all sports, not just Gaelic Games.

This deck is designed to be colourful and fun and maybe even educational, but equally as important, it has to be playable so the quality of the cards is vital.

We've also got add-ons of t-shirts, keyrings and even colouring books!!

I have all the designs and the tuck box done, I just need to decide what to do for the Jokers, so please let me know your thoughts. I've had a couple of ideas but nothing concrete yet... Get in touch via: info@onegaelic.com

I'll be posting more photos on Facebook & Instagram in the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for them, and please 'like' and 'share' the posts to help get the word out, because I'll also be doing several 'Give-Away' competitions for free decks!!
