These sheep are baaa-cking Mayo to win the All-Ireland!

With the All-Ireland football final just around the corner most fans are getting their jerseys, flags and bunting ready, but these sheep in Co. Mayo are showing their true colours ahead of the big day.

Mayo man, and dedicated GAA supporter, Kevin McHugh decided to transform two rams into true Mayo supporters, ahead of the game against Dublin on Sunday.

McHugh, from Keenagh in North Mayo, even posed with his now famous red and green sheep in his Mayo jersey.

GAA mad farmers dying sheep’s wool, and other farming animals, in county colours ahead of All-Ireland finals is a common trend.

Veterinary officers have assured animal rights groups previously that the dye is harmless to the sheep.

Mayo haven’t won an All-Ireland football title since 1951, despite reaching the final on multiple occasions over the past couple of years.

Mayo last reached the final in 2013, which they lost by a single point to Dublin the reigning All-Ireland champions.

Throw in for the All-Ireland football final is at 3.30pm on Sunday, September 18, with the minor final between Galway and Kerry throwing in at 1.15pm.
