As Joe McDonagh Cup fever continues to takeover the county we have found our favourite 'Good Luck' sign to date.
Laois came through all of their group games in the competition unbeaten, collecting wins against Offaly, Antrim, Kerry and Westmeath along the way. On Sunday, the McDonagh Cup final will be played prior to the Leinster hurling final in what will be the Laois hurlers first appearance in Croke Park since 2005.
GAA clubs and local businesses across the county have been wishing the Laois senior hurlers luck ahead of Sunday's trip to Croke Park for the Joe McDonagh Cup final against Westmeath.
With Sunday's match getting closer it's great to see everyone getting behind Ryan, Conor and all the Laois lads. So let's all get out our blue and white to show our support. Please feel free to send us your pictures of signs or houses decorated ⚪⚪⚪⚪ pic.twitter.com/8fwZNM0O0e— Castletown GAA (@GAACastletown) June 26, 2019
Our favourite one to date is this brilliant spin on the well known line to wish local player and Laois centre-back Ryan Mullaney luck ahead of the game.
In order to fully understand the line, you would have to be familiar with the 2 Johnnies - the comedic/musical duo hailing from Tipperary, well known for their sketches, songs and hugely popular podcast. Last summer their catchy song took over the airwaves, simply titled 'Summer Tune', with a particular line proving popular amongst hurling fans - 'Chips, Cans, John Mullane'.
For a reminder, the video below automatically starts at 2:10 to tee you up:
The line references the infamous Waterford hurler John Mullane, and now Castletown GAA have their own hero in Ryan Mullaney. We're told they didn't coin their version just for the final, and it's already been sang in a pub or two to date.
Fair play to the lads for this one, and best of luck to the Laois hurlers on Sunday.
