PIC: This man wasn't going to let his son's wedding stop him watching his county play

When your son's getting married, but GAA is life...

GAA is form of religion in Ireland. Any word against it is considered blasphemy in many parts of the country.

Kevin O'Neill from Cullyhanna in Armagh is a staunch GAA man. He attends as many of his club and county games as he possible can.

But last weekend when Armagh took on Kildare in the final round of the All-Ireland Qualifiers, Kevin was absent from Croke Park, but he had a very good reason.

He was attending his son, Rory's, wedding on Saturday and couldn't make the trip from Armagh to Croke Park.

As luck would have it, the wedding dinner would also clash with Armagh's game and it looked like the Father of the Groom would have to miss the match in order to be present at the meal and speeches.

But that wouldn't stop Kevin from seeing the match, meal or no meal, he set up his phone against a wine glass and watched the action unfold in Croke Park.

But while he watched the opening 35 minutes on the small screen, the meal ended, meaning he and Rory could retreat to the bar and watch the second half on a normal sized screen.

Armagh emerged victorious, and speaking to JOE, Rory told us his father was jubilant at the result.

"Ya couldn't beat that in there [sic]," Kevin said to his newly married son.

Kevin will be sitting anxiously in Croker this Saturday and will be hoping his side can overcome rivals Tyrone to book a place in the semi-final.
