Irish T-Shirts: T-léine.ie

Pantone may have declared green the color of the year for 2013, but there are plenty of reasons to not don this of-the-moment color on St. Patrick's Day, including the fact that you look better in blue. Go against the grain (and the green) and wear a shirt that is actually made in Ireland and features a little Irish language. Now, that'll make everyone else in the office/parade really green!

The Cork-based T-léine.ie company was founded in 2012 out of a love and passion for the Irish language. Owner Pronsias saw Irish language T-shirts as an opportunity for people to share and wear their love for the Irish language. " For such a beautiful language, I believed the generic 'Póg mo thóin' type t-léine (you know the ones!) just didn't do it justice.
I couldn't agree more.

Sure, you could ask someone to kiss your thoin or kiss you because you're Irish, but if you're looking for the real deal/a Paddy to grow old with, you might want to try a T-shirt that triggers an interesting conversation, like this "Tá Éire fíorálainn” shirt, designed to commemorate the recent first Tweet in Irish from space (by Canadian engineer Chris Hadfield).

 And if you must look like a cabbage in green, at least look like a savage cabbage:
