AFL side Essendon FC took a creative approach to announcing some big team news on Twitter this morning, drip feeding their fans clues with a distinctly Irish feel.

The good news - former Tyrone minor footballer Conor McKenna will make his senior AFL debut for Essendon this weekend.

Congratulations Conor, the latest in a long line of GAA stars to turn their skills to the Australian game.
