A lovely little snippet from this week's 'Thank GAA It's Friday' magazine show has revealed that Republic of Ireland and Everton full-back Seamus Coleman is looking forward to playing more Gaelic football back in Killybegs when he hangs up his soccer boots.
After a quick kick-about with some of the locals kids, one of whom was wearing an Everton shirt and pinged a goal past Coleman, the former Sligo Rovers man explained how he loved growing up in Killybegs and plans to return home with his wife when he's finished in England, and get back involved with GAA.
What position would he play in for Official Donegal GAA!? Seamus Coleman talks about his GAA roots on Thank GAA It's Friday tonight - catch it at 9.30pm RTÉ2!.

Me and my wife, we want to come home because we love it here. There's nothing I'm looking forward to more than coming home and every Tuesday and Thursday evening going over to the pitch and playing with the lads again.
It's good to see someone who has hit the big time of Premier League football remain so grounded, and actively look forward to returning to a quiet life in a town like Killybegs.
