The pressure was immense. I knew that all eyes would be on me, scrutinising me. I had to be in peak physical condition. This was my moment in the spotlight. It was time to prove to everyone just who I could be. I remember thinking to myself – this is major.
You could be forgiven for thinking Jackie is talking about his minor hurling debut in 1999 (incidentally, he won a minor Leinster medal that year when Kilkenny beat Wexford 2013 to -11) and he quite possibly is, but the setup for the latest Minor All-Ireland Final promo mirrors in Tyrrell’s words when it comes to the joy of the debs.
Stylish as ever, take a look above and if you’re up for it, share your old debs photos using #ThisIsMajor and you could win tickets to the All-Ireland Minor Hurling Final or Electric Picnic. Simply upload them to either Twitter or Instagram using #ThisIsMajor to enter. Winners will be announced this by Electric Ireland.
Note: KCLR are not involved in running the competition but we are involved in watching cracking videos featuring local sporting stars.
