This Wonderfully Agricultural T-Shirt Was The Real High Point Of The Toughest Trade

This Wonderfully Agricultural T-Shirt Was The Real High Point Of The Toughest Trade

Last night's showing of The Toughest Trade, witnessed Tipperary hurler Brendan Maher switch to cricket for a brief spell by linking up with the Adelaide Strikers while Steve Harmison temporarily took Maher's place at the Borrisoleigh club.

This was episode one of the unique sports documentary and the next instalment will see Mayo's Aidan O'Shea sample American Football. This will be aired on March 15th.

The purpose of the Toughest Trade experiment is to highlight the dedication that GAA players give to their sport by engaging with athletes from professional sports for a short stint. And while Brendan Maher's episode was well received by viewers last night, there really was one star of the show.

A young boy from Maher's Tipperary was sporting an agriculturally inspired t-shirt that quickly gathered positive attention online.

Incidentally, the 'Feckin Fresian' jersey is a masterful creation from the good people at O'Neills that was invented last year for the 2015 Ploughing Championships. And thankfully it wasn't the only one with this effort being a particular highlight.
