Here is the Boston Celtics basketball jacket, which constitutes anothe rfrequent symbol of Irish pride. Especially popular in the town of Boston (unsurprisingly so), the jersey owes it's green color and shamrock emblem to the team's first owner, Walter Brown, who wanted to ensure the team's popularity within Boston's sizeable Irish community (read about Boston's rich Irish tradition in our St Patrick's parade section).

Another viable option is the affable Celtic FC soccer jersey, which could appeal to someone with mixed Irish-Scottish heritage. Not to be confused with the Boston Celtics, Celtic FC is one of two leading soccer clubs from Glasgow, and one ofthe oldest professional sporting associations in the world. Have a look,and decide for yourself whether the horizontal green stripes are right for you.

Our final recomendation on this list is perhaps our most unusual. The Panathinaikos FC soccer t-shirt is a surprising amalgamation of Greek heritage and traditional Irish symbols. This is because the Athens-based soccer giant uses the color green for their uniforms, and the shamrock as their team symbol.This Panathinaikos soccer t-shirt can become an excellent choice for a St.Patrick's celebrant with Greek roots, and can be found at World Soccer Shop.
