Tipperary will revert to their blue and gold colours for Sunday week's All-Ireland SFC semi-final against Mayo.

The Premier County wore a replica green and white jersey in their famous Munster final win over Cork to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of Bloody Sunday.

David Power's side honoured the memory of Michael Hogan and his team-mates in fitting fashion by claiming the provincial senior football crown for the first time since 1935.

The Tipp county board were reportedly considering on retaining the green and white strip for the December 6 showdown with Mayo but confirmed on Twitter this evening that it was a "one-off replica for a specific commemorative day that will live long in the memory."
