Mayo man Paul longing for Croker date

All Ireland Final

Attention GAA fans – This man needs an All Ireland Final ticket, can you help?
Paul Murphy, a former student of St Michael’s College and footballer for Enniskillen Town is appealing to anyone who has a spare All Ireland Final ticket.
 The Mayo native from Ballina moved to Enniskillen when he was 15, and he now lives in America, but Paul wants to come home and personally break Mayo’s ‘curse.’
“Most of my friends in Fermanagh know me by my St Mick’s nickname, “Mayo”. I haven’t made it to a final despite the heartache of multiple finals and replays which have ended in losses. I figured it was time I tried to break the curse myself this year,” said Paul.
Paul now works for a mobile application development company in Washington DC and is as “confident as the price of a budget airline through Iceland” that Mayo will beat Dublin in Croke Park, and promises that if Mayo wins, he’ll focus  his luck on Fermanagh next year.
 “We beat Kerry and we beat them well. Dublin will be next to impossible but crazier things have happened. It would be incredible. I’ve been home twice in the last year for two of my sister’s weddings. It’s crazy to go home again but just had a feeling that I couldn’t let this slip by me.”
If anyone does have a spare All Ireland Final ticket, and is feeling generous, contact Paul on
