PIC: Tipp GAA star on Tinder overestimates the effect playing for your county has on the ladies

We suspect he could have been the victim of a particularly cruel prank here.

Playing inter-county football and hurling comes with a status that can have its fringe benefits off the pitch.

High-profile players will often get lucrative sponsorship gigs, others might get a free car to drive around in and others still might take advantage of the extra attention they’ll receive from potential suitors on a night out.

There’s no doubt that excellence on the pitch can help many GAA stars from a romantic point of view but it’s dangerous to simply assume that it will because to some people, it doesn’t make a blind bit of difference.

With that in mind, a screenshot of a Tinder conversation made its way into us this morning and while we were given the context behind it, all we’ll say is that the player in question is allegedly from Tipperary.

Like we said above, we reckon there’s a good chance that he had no part to play in the conversation whatsoever, but the exchange is pure gold all the same.

If it did indeed lead to romance, it could be a good one to tell the grandkids.
