Incredible video of the All Ireland 2013 Football final parachute jump into Croke Park

Forget getting tickets for the Hill or the Hogan Stand, this is one of the best views of Croke Park that we’ve ever seen.

Prior to throw-in between Dublin and Mayo on Sunday, the match ball for the All Ireland final was delivered from the skies in spectacular style as a parachutist floated to earth with it, impressively landing right in the centre of Croker.

We just hoped he wasn't booked for descent. Wahey!

Thankfully for us, the cameraman recorded the entire jump resulting in the amazing RTÉ clip you see below. The perfect weather on the day results in a class view of Dublin city, including the match-day stragglers and, best of all, the huge Dublin and Mayo banners lying flat on the perfectly prepared pitch.

Beautiful, incredible and exhilarating stuff:

At least the Irish daredevil got his jump out of the way before the game started, as opposed to this English parachutist who landed on the pitch right in the middle of a league match recently.Check out the bonkers footage here.
