Margaret McConville admits shouting at referees

Oisin reminds us what his mum was like when he was playing

Electric Ireland have posted their new video showing Oisin McConville and his mother Margaret recalling the Armagh and Crossmaglen’s star’s minor career.

As part of the inaugural Electric Ireland Minor GAA Star Awards, Electric Ireland linked up with All Star legend and minor ambassador Oisín McConville and his mum, Margaret to see how major an influence she has been and just how well they know each other.

It’s clear that while Margaret’s passion for her son playing Minor football sometimes spilled onto the pitch, she has been integral to helping him achieve all he has within the sport.

McConville is calling for the public to vote on the Electric Ireland Facebook page for their minor players of the week ahead of the Electric Ireland Minor GAA Star Awards. The Awards, which will take place in Croke Park on the 7th October 2017, will honour the best minor player in each position to complete the Electric Ireland GAA Minor Hurling and Football Teams of the year as well as selecting an overall Player of the Year for Football and Hurling.

The BBC documentary about Crossmaglen showed how the team was shaped by tradition.
