Watch a couple of GAA legends try to kick a ball into a washing machine

A couple of Leinster GAA legends were set an unusual challenge recently.

Beko, who make home appliances, asked Trevor Giles and Charlie Redmond to renew their old Meath and Dublin rivalry in the Beko Washing Machine Challenge.

The gist of the challenge was simple, kick a ball into a Beko washing machine.

However, as the lads found out, the actual challenge was not so simple.

The challenge was promoting the Beko Club Bua awards, a new initiative by Leinster GAA aiming to promote best practice on and off the field and reward clubs for their commitment.
