Glenisk Cards and the ‘Legendairy’ Shane Byrne

Glenisk have launched a special collection of Irish Rugby Legends Trading Cards.

The collection includes 15 special edition cards for rugby fans to collect, trade and play.

They include Brian O’Driscoll, Rory Best and Ronan O’Gara but not Shane Byrne which has caused the former international with one of the best-known mullets in Irish sport to launch his own campaign for ‘legendairy’ status.

It’s an amusing twist on the collectable trend which Glenisk has run since coming on board as a partner of the IRFU and which played out well in a sticker format for Aldi through 2019.

Each card features unique player statistics, with players rated on their legendary statistic. They will be available exclusively inside every pack of GO-YOs Organic Yogurt Tubes.

There will also be three trading cards featuring the current Irish Men’s and Women’s players, and a special edition collectors poster available free from the Glenisk website.

Shane Byrne has starred in and produced his own campaign video in a bid for one last shot at glory. We wish him well in his endeavours…
