It's 113 days until Ireland's opening game of Euro 2016 against Sweden.

Before the tournament, Martin O'Neill gets an opportunity to test out some fringe players with three friendlies in quick succession - the first of which is against Switzerland on March 25th, Good Friday.

That game being on Easter weekend and it being the centenary of the Easter Rising, it looks like the jersey for the game will commemorate 1916.

On Saturday evening, Ireland's kit manufacturer Umbro tweeted a sneak preview.

The initial tweet had many presuming it would also be the kit for Euro 2016. It seems that might not be the case.
