Jeff Stelling and Chris Kamara are commentating at an underage GAA game in Kerry

The legendary soccer figures have come to Ireland to learn more about Gaelic football.

RENOWNED FOOTBALL PERSONALITIES Jeff Stelling and Chris Kamara have arrived in Ireland to discover the wonder of Gaelic football.

And one of their first stops as part of the journey brings them to Dingle in Kerry.

The pair are in town to commentate on a juvenile game between Dingle and the Gaeltacht, as part of a initiative conducted by AIB.

According to Radio Kerry, legendary GAA comentator Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh may also be attending the game to give the Sky Sports duo some advice.

While in Ireland, Stelling and Kamara will visit local GAA clubs to get a better understanding of how they are linked with the inter-county game and will be meeting up with some prominent GAA pundits.

Speaking about the project, Kamara said:

“We are really excited about this. To get to travel across Ireland, learn about a new sport and better understand what the GAA is about is a fantastic opportunity for fans of any sport. We can’t wait to hit the road and begin our journey with AIB!”

Stelling added that they hope to come away from the visit with a better appreciation of what this Irish sport is all about.

“We don’t have much knowledge of Gaelic Football but have obviously spent much of our professional lives in football and both enjoy a strong affinity to our local clubs, so we do hope that some of this will translate.

“Hopefully we will have a much better understanding by the end of our journey.”
