2 - Mick McDonagh

Offaly and the country's most famous GAA supporter, Mick McDonagh makes the list for his undying love for his county and his sport, through the lean years as much as those of triumph.

McDonagh is known most fondly as #OffalyDude on social media, and much like the old John 3:16 banner, is a fixture behind the goals at GAA games of all levels, from Croke Park to Fitzgerald Stadium.

Donning his Offaly jersey, Mick puts the faithful into every occasion, from the Cumann na mBunscoil to All-Ireland finals. He paces up and down, gestures and encourages; unwavering in his support. If a game is on, Mick is there!
