At last Kevin Long has got game time at Burnley as he came on last night with only a few mins to play . One now hopes he can get into the side as I would say they could do with him at the back as they have leaked a lot of goals this season .
Well done Kevin Thumbs Up

Just flicking through Twitter and a lot of Burnley fans are praising how well he played today Clap

Burnley did play in green and white before turning to claret and blue in 1913. Due to the Irish heritage of the town. Great to see Kevin do so well. Burnley's main rivals Blackburn Rovers always played in red , white and blue. There lies another story.

Great to see another Irish lad get a start.  

When Michael Keane makes his move away from Burnley in the summer, it might give Long a a shot at more frequent game-time.

While it appears that Burnley did play in green, there is nothing to suggest it had anything to do with Ireland at all, anywhere. Have you any evidence or is it a story you liked?
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Read it previously on a Burnley forum in discussions on the rivalry v Blackburn over the years. But as you say it could be one persons slant on history.

I would just imagine if that was the reason it would be better known. Plenty of teams have worn green without a connection to Ireland.

Being one of the worst myths, usually with somebody adding that we were the first to play them after the war. Just to clarify, Switzerland were the first team to play them and they took their second choice colours from the DFB logo, which in turn was taken from football pitch markings. 
Panathinaikos is another one, people unable to accept that shamrocks and the colour green are used outside of Ireland.
