Conor Shanahan describes his day as Tipperary Mascot

Hello, I’m Conor Shanahan and  I was the mascot for the Tipperary v Waterford game last Sunday. I had a brilliant day thanks to John Coman and the Tipperary Supporters Club. Before the match, I met John and he gave my Daddy  two Tipperary umbrellas and radios. I sat on the bench with the team and got a picture taken. Shane McGrath was on my right and Brendan Maher on my left. Then Shane McGrath hit a sliotar over to me. I got two more photos taken, one with the referee Cathal McAllister and the two captains, the other was with Tipperary captain Declan Fanning. Then I went up to the Tipp FM commentary box. There was a great view of the match up in the box. At half time Paddy Finucane and Tom McGrath asked me a few questions on Tipp FM. I was very nervous and I didn’t know what to say. After that I met Michael O Muircheartaigh and had a photo taken with him. Then I went into the press box where I met some of the journalists writing about the match. I then went back down to the stand to watch the second half. I would like to say thanks to the Tipperary Supporters Club and John Coman for making it a great day and I will always remember this special day.
