Watch: ‘One Island, Two Teams’ - and some impressive freestyling

Two fantastic freestylers have teamed up with Tourism Ireland to help show off our beautiful island as its two teams prepare for Euro 2016.

The pair range around the island, showcasing their snazzy skills in locations from the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge to the Cliffs of Moher.

Powerscourt House and Gardens, Titanic Belfast, the Guinness Storehouse and the Giant’s Causeway all look stunning in the sun.

Representing the Republic of Ireland in the green kit is Dara Coyne, a Dubliner crowned an Irish champion freestyle athlete in 2014.

In the white jersey, and representing Northern Ireland, is Jamie Knight, a 23-year-old professional football freestyler from Northern Ireland.
