Pic: A great Aidan O’Shea lookalike met a not so great Marty Morrissey lookalike in Coppers last night

Two giants of the GAA world came together in the Daddy of all GAA nightclubs last night…

Visit Coppers on any given night and you’re bound to find at least 20 per cent of the crowd wearing county jerseys or other GAA-related material and that figure no doubt increased as Halloween revellers dressed up as their favourite figures from the world of Gaelic Football and hurling in the famous Harcourt Street nightspot last night.

Marty Morrissey costumes are ten-a-penny at this stage but this is the first time we’ve seen anyone dress up as inspirational Mayo midfielder Aidan O’Shea, the man whose performances and hairstyle took the Championship by storm this season.

JOE reader Barry McNamara went to Coppers dressed as O’Shea last night and judging from the picture he sent into us, he’s not unlike him at all, going to special lengths to get the fringe and the chin stubble just about right.

We’re not so sure about the Marty lookalike but don’t be surprised to see a similar scene involving the two real-life characters in the same venue if Mayo can finally end the long wait for Sam next year.
