YOU may have seen some colourful bags in shop windows and around town over the last week posing the question; “Is it in the bag?”

Well they are the brainchild of the people from Barry Packaging up in Monavalley who decided to bring out the limited edition product and give it to shops, free of charge, in the run-up to the All-Ireland final.

“We’ve been Kerry supporters all our lives so we decided to do something to show our support for the team,” said Breda Barry of Barry Packaging.

“After the semi-final win, my brother, Eamon, came up with the idea and our designer Eleanor came up with the bag design within a day. We got them printed and delivered within a week. We’ve distributed them to businesses all over the county to add a bit of colour to shopfronts,” she said.

“They’re free so a lot of people have been looking for them and hope to get them signed by the Kerry team next week. Some people plan to send them abroad to family and friends overseas. They might be a collectors item in a few years!” said Breda.

The green and gold bags feature the years of all Kerry’s senior All-Ireland wins, but when it comes to 2014 it asks “Is it in the bag?”.

Well is it?

“I’m looking forward to it, but I think it’ll be very close. It’ll go to a replay I’d say,” said Breda.

They still have some bags left, so if businesses would like a few call them on 066-7118200.
