Swedish environmentalist Greta Thunberg has announced today from Camlough that she will play for Shane O’Neill’s GAA ladies team in the 2020 season.
The young activist who has been a fan of the GAA for many years has said she will begin training in earnest when she moves into her house in St Oliver Plunkett Park in the village in January.
Shane O’Neill’s spokesman Micky Mackin told us:
“We have been speaking with Greta for a lock of months now about the possibility of her coming on board with the ladies team. She has great natural ability and can play with both feet. It is an exciting time for the club and the Parish.”
