Pic: Donegal teenager gives zero fu**s about Leaving Cert results because he’s featured in FIFA ‘15

That's one way of looking at it


He seems to have his priorities in order anyway.

Thousands of students across the country got their Leaving Cert results today and before they did, we imagine quite a few of them were sweating over the grades that appeared on that all important sheet of paper.

Despite its significance, Leaving Cert results are not the be all and end all and while it’s hard to get that message across to some teenagers right now, some are more receptive than others.

To say that Donegal man and talented sportsman Michael Lynch wasn’t arsed about the Leaving Cert results would be an understatement.

As far as he’s concerned, the fact that he features in probably the most popular football video game of all time is of more importance to him at the moment.

19-year old Michael, from St Johnston, won the Foyle Cup with Derry City recently and regularly appeared on the bench for the Candystripes’ senior side before leaving the club a couple of weeks’ back.


Michael might not have been arsed about the results themselves, but by the sounds of things, he’s going to party just as hard as everyone else with good reason to celebrate tonight.
