One of the most decorated players in Irish rugby Rob Kearney made a comeback to his first sport Gaelic football at the weekend for his club Cooley Kickhams in county Louth. The Chairman of the club Adrian Sheelan is absolutely thrilled to have the former Lions and Irish full-back, back playing Gaelic football.

‘It’s a bit of a lift for everyone.’
“He probably will be a real asset eventually but he’s obviously not match fit right now,” Sheelan said.
“He did all right on Sunday. He didn’t do anything wrong but he probably could have finished with a goal and a point but he did all right.
“It’s a bit of a lift for everyone. Every club needs a bit of a lift now and again. It was very good of him to come back.”
