Crafty club footballer discovers ingenious method to avoid getting soaked in Derry deluge

'I didn't get out of bed early for this craic'

Patrick McCarry

It looked as though summer was here. If it was, it’s gone again.

We’ve all been caught out in heavy showers while playing our favourite sports. More often than not, you need help peeling your jersey off at the end of the game before flinging it in a sodden heap in the corner of the changing room.

A forward for Dungiven GAA didn’t fancy that prospect one bit, on Sunday, as the heavens opened during his reserve league match.

Maybe he’d tough it out for the seniors but this was the reserve league, for God’s sake.


We love the reaction of his non-plussed marker.

Surely he was half tempted to following his man off the pitch to the one spot in Derry that was saturated.
