VIDEO: Footage of Aidan O’Shea trying out American Football has arrived

He won’t want to see this again in a hurry.

All-Star Mayo footballer Aidan O’Shea was spared the grind of early February GAA training last week, but he was still getting a workout on the other side of the Atlantic.

O’Shea traded places with former Miami Dolphin Roberto Wallace as part of The Toughest Trade documentary film that will air on RTE next month.

The Breaffy man is one of the best fielders around in the big ball game at home, but his hands let him down a little in the clip below, despite having done everything right up to that point.

Given that the shape of the ball is just a tad different, we’ll let Aidan off just this once.

The Toughest Trade is a documentary film commissioned by AIB as part of its #TheToughest campaign.

The two-part documentary series will air on RTE2 in March ahead of the AIB GAA Club Championship Finals, and will subsequently be available to view on the AIB You Tube channel.
