Watch: The 2 Johnnies Go Undercover On All-Ireland Final Day

Watch: The 2 Johnnies Go Undercover On All-Ireland Final Day

The gaelic football season culminated on Saturday evening when Tyrone beat Mayo in the All-Ireland football final to bring the Sam Maguire back to the O'Neill county for the first time since 2008. But that wasn't all that went down on Saturday. The 2 Johnnies were undercover near Croker as part of AIB's Rivalries Reignited series, and shenanigans ensued.

The lads enlisted former Mayo footballer John Casey and legendary Tyrone back Conor Gormley in their messing. As the former footballers attempted to get Mayo and Tyrone supporters to sign ludicrous petitions, the two boys from Tipp watched on from a nearby truck with secret cameras and microphones, and fed Casey and Gormley some words to say.

Hilarity ensued, with the former footballers getting stick from both set of fans.

From renaming Croagh Patrick to outlawing handpasses to limousines for the players, Casey and Gormley had a hard time convincing people to sign the funny petitions while keeping a straight face.

As Gormley admits, 'I'd rather be marking Aidan O'Shea.'

While there was plenty of emotion poured out on the pitch on Saturday, this video is a nice reminder of the lighter side of GAA.
