A Definitive Ranking Of Today's 10 Wettest Looking GAA Players

A Definitive Ranking Of Today's 10 Wettest Looking GAA Players

We had been told it's a championship like no other, and it's already proving to be for a variety of different reasons. One factor that's already proving huge in its influence is the weather. It turns out a winter championship is a lot wetter and windier than its summer equivalent. Who'd have thought it!?

Sunday was particularly wet - maybe even the wettest GAA championship day ever - yet all the players soldiered on. For some, it has proved to be their only championship outing, while for others, it was worth the rain. We've put together a ranking of the most drenched players from around the country.

10. Eoin Porter - Wexford

The rain makes him look even wetter.

9. Jake Morris - Tipperary

Even though Páirc Uí Chaoimh was probably the wettest game of the day, hurlers don't really look as wet as footballers, given they've got helmets protecting their barnets. Sportsfile's Daire Brennan really captured the conditions, however, in his photo of Jake Morris' goal celebration.

We'd also like to give this snapshot an honourable mention as well.

8. Darren Gallagher - Longford

He'll be happy with the win over Louth and happy to have made the ranking — albeit not very high on it.

7. Stephen McMenamin - Donegal


Murphy could have been a candidate as well but the curly locks on McMenamin gets him the nod.


6. Hugh McFadden - Donegal

Hugh's locks are slightly longer than Stephen. Hence he's one spot higher.

5. Conor Carty - Wexford

The wettest, the filthy shorts, the disappointment of defeat; a tough day for Carty.

4. Aidan O'Shea - Mayo

A man built for a wet day.


3. Mattie Donnelly - Tyrone

A tough day at the office for Donnelly and Tyrone.

2. Brendan Flynn - Leitrim

God help the person that has to do Flynn's washing tonight.

1. Kieran McGeary - Tyrone

There was only ever going to be one winner here. He was by a distance the wettest person in Ireland today. We have multiple photos to prove it.
