Hilarious video shows the differences between Dublin and Mayo’s training sessions

A hilarious viral video has taken apart the differences in training methods between Dublin and Mayo in the build-up to the All-Ireland final, writes Stephen Barry.

Hilarious video shows the differences between Dublin and Mayo’s training sessions

The 2 Johnnies video has almost 200,000 views as it shows the “Mayo culchies” and “soft Dublin townies” training and psyching themselves up for Croke Park.

Dublin’s training is more concerned with technique and looking good in the jersey. Meanwhile Mayo’s approach is more, well, agricultural and focused on channelling the pain of previous defeats.

The stereotypes of their different approaches to nutrition and weight-training are brilliantly mocked by the comedy duo.

And keep an eye out for the football-playing dog too!

But the big question is can Mayo do it for the boys of ’51 or will Dublin add another name to the roll-call of defeats on Sunday?
