He spent over an hour meeting every fan waiting in Buttercrane, taking selfies, signing everything from parental consent forms to school diaries.

Greg O’Shea plays professional rugby 7’s and is part of the Irish squad who are hopeful of qualifying for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo next Summer.

 

 

Greg has recently appeared as a presenter on RTE’s 2FM and will be co-hosting a new TV chat show for Virgin Media called ‘The Late Tackle’.

This will air on Thursday nights for the next 6 weeks to coincide with the Six Nations Rugby Championship.
