Follow Friday: It’s Colm (woolly) Parkinson

Every Friday we’ll point you in the right direction for some of the most entertaining sportsmen and women on the Twitter.

WHAT’S NOT TO like about Colm Parkinson? Well apparently quite a lot: according to an independent survey conducted by @Woolberto himself last year, 65% of his followers thought he was a w****er. Now, you too can join their ranks.

The former Laois, Portlaois, Parnells and Portlaois (again) forward tends to leap before he looks when talking and that has transferred beautifully onto Twitter.

Whether it be ‘The Woolies’, his own take on an end of season GAA awards ceremony, his ‘friendship’ with Diniyar Bilyaletdinov or just the crazy world of a retired gaelic footballer; Parkinson’s got it all!

Woolly loves winding people up, GAA and Everton (in that order). so just click through and follow the man… you’ll laugh, you’ll rage, you might even win a prize*.

Here’s some of Woolly’s best bits:
