Once again, Jarly Óg Burns is preparing to lord the skies above Clones this weekend. Just as his father, Jarlath, has done so often in the past.
Young Burns is the cut of his father and it seems like the midfielder has had his plan mapped out for himself from an early age.
Web journalist Jerome Quinn has been digging through his vast archive recently and has stumbled upon a gem from Clones which sees the journalist speaking with the current intercounty star as a 10-year-old.
Video: 10-year-old Jarly Og Burns in Clones! See an archive video where I spoke to the current Armagh star after he played in an Ulster SFC half-time kids game. 'Hopefully I'll go on to play for Armagh some day’, says Jarly Og.. #GAA pic.twitter.com/BVvADmCKHd

The current Armagh star had been playing during one of the half-time games at an Ulster senior football championship game and couldn't resist a dig at his old man.
[It was] a great experience. Hopefully I'll go on and play for Armagh. Just for now, I'm happy. I'm just excited for the next step for me.
I just really want to be like [my Dad]. He was a great midfielder. Unlike him, I can shoot.
After an imposing performance from the centre of the field in last Sunday's Ulster semi-final draw with Cavan, Burns was awarded the GAA.ie Footballer of the Week award this week.
This Sunday, he returns to Clones as his county attempt to make it back into the Ulster final for the first time since 2008.
