VIDEO: League Sunday recreate famous Nike ad for Henry Shefflin tribute

RTÉ turned to an iconic Nike ad from the 1990s for inspiration when creating a video tribute to Henry Shefflin on last night’s League Sunday.

The Kilkenny legend announced his retirement last week - stepping back from the inter-county game with a phenomenal 10 All-Ireland medals and 11 All-Stars.

So League Sunday went to his home parish of Ballyhale and the pupils of Scoil Phádraig National School took part in a remake of the 1996 Nike ad that first brought Tiger Woods to the world’s attention.

All together now: “I am Henry Shefflin”.
