You might have had a decent summer so far, but it probably hasn’t been a patch on Mike Griffin’s.

If the name sounds familiar it should because Mike has been the focus of plenty of attention already this summer and has been something of a regular on these pages having travelled to Brazil for the World Cup and having fetched the signatures of some of the most famous names in football on a Na Gaeil GAA jersey he brought with him.

Fabio Cannavaro, Diego Maradona, Martin O’Neill and Mesut Ozil – directly after winning the World Cup Final if you don’t mind – were just some of the high profile personalities to add their signatures to the jersey, which Mike will now generously auction off to raise funds for Cry (Cardiac Risk in the Young) Ireland, a very worthy cause.

Mike has made a brilliant video recounting his once in a lifetime experience in Brazil and if you weren’t already jealous from just hearing about his story and seeing the pictures, you will be after seeing this.

Class.
