Cushendall's biggest fan Chris Hadfield hangs out with Antrim hurlers

The Canadian astronaut watched ALL the club side’s games from space.

CHRIS HADFIELD ENJOYED his hurling experience, in Dublin, so much during the week that he decided to drop in on the Antrim hurlers for an extra lesson.

The Canadian astronaut, who gained fame for his social media and photography exploits on the International Space Station, is in Ireland this week to take up a new role as a tourism ambassador for Ireland.

He met up with hurlers Neil McManus and Shane McNaughton and looked the part; wearing a jersey from Antrim club side Cushendall.
