Follow Friday: It's Shane McGrath

Every Friday we help point you in the right direction for some of the most interesting sport stars on the Twitter.

WE ALL KNOW Shane McGrath as an All-Ireland winner with Tipperary.

But to cast him in such a two dimensional frame would be a great disservice to the man.

When you follow his Twitter account you get the sense of a guy who is upbeat about life.

in fact, the only things that seems to get him down are Manchester United and watching the Dubliners of a Saturday night.

McGrath’s a good follow, because he doesn’t take himself too seriously.

There are one-liners aplenty and some generally genius low-brow humour that makes you smile before you’re prudish adult brain takes over and orders you to force a groan. We love that stuff.

  • Andy Carroll is fast becoming an easy target.

    Shame the striker didn't feel the same way about the goal at the Kop end.
  • McGrath's answer to a happy meal.

  • The glamour of Saturday night fever in the McGrath house.

  • McGrath's philosophising has us tied up in knots.

  • It's a matter of pride.

  • McGrath pays tribute to a legend.

    While the sentiment is in the right place, a few of the vowels are not. There are a grand total of four links that match the hashtag #MohammadAli and one of them is a drunk chick in Vegas.
  • As a cost-saving exercise this is revolutionary.

  • Click your heels together, there's no place like home.

  • There's no humour like toilet humour.

  • McGrath gives Paudie a little Twitter 101.
