He's a bit of a laugh.

Some unfair comments here.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

Anything or anybody that gets young people talking about hurling has to be good.

And that's a fact of life!

No doubt. He comes across well in that interview. I'd still say he's not the full shilling but he's doing more to market hurling than the GAA is, that's for sure :)

+1

It's sad but 100% true.  He's actually interested in hurling outside the top 8 counties.

Great character and comments saying he is a simpleton and not the full shilling are very unfair

Had never heard of him before this thread but I fully agree with your comment there.
For all we know he could be a member here seeing as he is so mad into his hurling and social media.
Very ignorant of people to say he isn't the full shilling.

True. I might be a million miles off base. I just see a 20 something year old adult (He says he was very young in 1995) posting like he does and think we're in box of frogs territory. But I'm obviously a completely different generation, and the young lads seem to love him, so fair play.

He spoke very well on that interview at times.

I think he is really sharp. He has built up a career doing something he loves, that he is very good at. I read somewhere that if you want to set up a business you need to offer something that nobody else is offering.

A career? He said he had to get a girl from Laois to pay for him to go into a match and buy him food. Or was that because he left his wallet at home? I'm not sure this is monitised as of yet, maybe that's a reason for it's popularity too. As he said himself, if he gets sponsorship from some big company, then he'd be beholden to them for approval of his content.

He's not an idiot.

I bet he will make a career out of it.
He'll do stuff in the papers or TV. He has built up something special.
