Video: Kerry and Donegal Minors look ahead to the Football Championship Final

The videos capture the players' lives as they juggle county training with work and life at college.

The videos were made to complement Electric Ireland's new TV ad campaign which is entitled This.Is.Major.  The ad elevate the stature and understanding of the Minor players’ life through a series of scenes including training, matches, school, exams, romance and the debs.

In the video, Barry O’Sullivan of Kerry describes the feeling he gets when taking to the Croke Park pitch;

A tingle goes up your spine, it’s not like any pitch you play on and with the huge stadium it can be a bit daunting, but it’s massive to be playing in Croke Park, it’s every kid’s dream, what more could you ask for?

Tony McCleneghan of Donegal discusses the commitments he has to make to play for his county;

“It’s an hour and a half going out to training, a two hour session, food and a shower and then an hour and a half back, and then we’re expected to do our homework and then study as well – it’s a lot of time

To the players, their families and supporters #ThisIsMajor.

Kerry’s Barry O’Sullivan’s video will be shared tomorrow, Wednesday 17th September and Donegal’s Tony McCleneghen’s video will be shared on Thursday 18th September.

These videos follow two released ahead of the Electric Ireland GAA Hurling Championship Final which focussed on Cian Lynch of Limerick and Conor Browne of Kilkenny.

The Electric Ireland GAA All Ireland Minor Football Final will take place this Sunday, the 21st September in Croke Park with throw in at 1.30pm.
