At some point on Saturday afternoon Cian O’Sullivan will drive down to the Forty Foot for a quick swim. He’s been doing this before most games for years now and the All-Ireland football final is no different.
From there he’ll head up to the parents with his girlfriend, Danielle, where his mother will have cooked them a hearty dinner. Then it’s back to their own place where they’ll pick out a movie on Netflix and switch off for the rest of the evening, careful to avoid any talk or even mention of Croke Park.
