Paul Mescal has teamed up with Sky Sports for a new All-Ireland promo to mark the 2020 GAA All-Ireland Championship Football Final.

The two-minute promo which features the Normal People star, looks back at what has been an extraordinary year when ‘human interaction’ was lost to ‘social distancing’ and ‘stay safe’ became the new ‘goodbye’.

The promo is overlaid with imagery from this year’s Championship along with scenes of how Covid-19 impacted our everyday lives, the promo will prompt people to reflect on what the GAA ultimately encapsulates; family, friends and community.

The clip, narrated by Emmy nominated actor, Paul Mescal, will open this Saturday’s coverage of the football final between Dublin and Mayo on Sky Sports Mix.

They said it follows on from Sky Sports’ opening promo in October which featured Dublin singer Imelda May’s beautiful ‘Home’.


Speaking ahead of the All-Ireland Football Championship Final, Paul Mescal said: “I’m a massive GAA fan and what I love most about the GAA is its ability to bring communities together. The very best of luck to both teams in this year’s All Ireland Football final!”

This year’s All-Ireland final between Dublin and Mayo will be live on Sky Sports Mix from Saturday at 4pm and will also be broadcast on RTÉ 2 from 3:40pm.
