Local Roscommon man sums up what the GAA is really about

The Rossies will face Kerry in the Allianz League semi-final tomorrow

The Allianz Leagues are once again nearing a conclusion as all those not involved in the latter stages of the competition turn their focus to this summer and the championship.

However, there are still 10 teams fighting it out for divisional honours as they each look to cap off their own wonderful campaigns, no more so than Roscommon, who have defied their relegation favourites tag to secure a semi-final berth against Kerry tomorrow. 

It has been a meteoric rise for the Rossies, as they are reaping the rewards of implementing a successful underage system within the county with successive promotions and now a Croke Park date with the Kingdom.

It's the stuff of dreams for the men from Connacht and their passionate supporters, particularly for local barber Paddy Joe Burke, who perfectly encapsulates what following your GAA team is all about in this interview with the Sunday Game

 

We can't get enough of Paddy Joe Burke and his passion for Roscommon ahead of the Allianz League semi-final.As he admits, he is living the Roscommon dream.
