It's been a long time since we've seen anyone sporting this Ronaldo-inspired look

There's no better place to debut a new haircut than a wet and windy GAA pitch on a Sunday morning, especially if that haircut is inspired by one of the greatest Brazilian players to ever kick a football, Ronaldo Luis Nazario da Lima.

That's exactly what Noel Byrne in Kildare did this weekend as Ballykelly took on Raheens seconds, and just like the star striker when he was at the height of his powers, he managed to inspire them to a win, their first for nearly 18 months. He also bears a striking resemblance to the man himself, making the look complete.

The haircut is obviously fantastic, but it's made even better thanks to the fact that Noel is doing this particular stunt for the Shave or Dye campaign.
