The Sky Sports GAA Twitter account was up to some self-deprecating mischief

The All-England Football final replay, eh?

In 2014, the GAA agreed to sell exclusive rights to broadcast almost one-third of its championship games to Sky Sports. Since Sky started showing football and hurling, plenty of people have welcomed the coverage which has featured excellent punditry from former Donegal manager Jim McGuinness, Tyrone legend Peter Canavan, Kilkenny’s nine time All-Ireland SHC champion JJ Delaney and Clare's Jamesie O’Connor.

It's not just a strong TV presence that Sky have invested in because they've also created a dedicated Twitter page for all things related to the GAA.

Earlier this week, Sky Sports News presenter Clare  Tomlinson apologised for her All-Ireland Final gaffe and following this, Sky's social media team decided to have some tongue-in-cheek fun with these five tweets.

Some people were initially confused by the tweets and felt that the account was hacked but any uncertainty was quickly cleared up. The rascals.
