Conor Moore, also known as Conor Sketches, has been entertaining Irish sports fans for years with his impressions of everyone from Ger Loughnane to Tiger Woods. From being Jose Mourinho in front of the Special One himself to lampooning some of Formula 1’s best drivers with his work, Moore has made a name for himself as being one of the best in the business.
Today, Moore has debuted a new character: Jimmy Sloyan, a former Mayo footballer who has become rather well known for his rants on Mayo GAA in recent times.
A parody account of Jimmy Sloyan has over 10,000 followers on Twitter, where the page is filled with different videos of a man who looks a lot like Sloyan arguing and ranting over Mayo’s results and players.

Today's sketch shows Des Cahill, Joe Brolly and Jimmy Sloyan on ‘ The Sunday Game Preview Show’ where Jimmy tears into Cillian O’Connor’s late effort going wide of the target against Galway, despite it being Aidan Orme who took the shot on.
Des then begins to interview James Horan ahead of this weekend’s clash against Monaghan where Jimmy goes off on one saying that he “knows more about the inside of Mayo GAA, because he played it “ than Mayo manager Horan.
"Sloyan" proceeds to get frustrated at Horan's comments before taking out a hurl and smashing up the TV in the Sunday Game studio.
Take a look at the full video of Conor’s sketch below.
