Local Man Was So Excited For Ireland Match He Completely Forgot To Watch Game Of Thrones


A LOCAL Waterford man was so engrossed in Ireland’s first match at the European Championships against Sweden, he has yet to realise he has an episode of Game of Thrones to watch.

For the first time in 2 months, David O’Connell’s Monday evening was dominated by something other than the popular HBO show.

O’Connell was said to have become so enthralled by every kick in the Sweden game, his usual Game of Thrones endorphins were replaced with similar feelings of joy and excitement while watching Jeff Hendrick’s fantastic impression of Zinedine Zidane.

The 24-year-old IT worker and self-confessed loser would at this point in any other week be in the middle of excited discussions with coworkers as to weather the latest Game of Thrones character to have his or her head brutally bashed could be labelled the best death of the entire series.

However, O’Connell’s entire week is set to revolve around a non-Game of Thrones related activity for once and it is unlikely that O’Connell will badger coworkers with the phrase ‘see Game of Thrones?’

It is not yet known when exactly O’Connell will realise he has 60 minutes of violence and breasts to catch up on, as he is already beginning to feel nervous ahead of Ireland’s match against Belgium on Saturday.
