All Ireland Final: Paddy goads Kerry with 60-metre projection on Dún Aonghusa

Got a lend of the bat signal for the night

Comments

Paddy’s making one of his boldest projections yet – a 60 metre projection has appeared on one of Galway’s most iconic landmarks.

Ahead of this weekend’s All-Ireland football final, Paddy made the trip to Inis Mór ahead of Galway’s bid to beat heavy favourites Kerry in Sunday’s showdown at Croke Park.

He took to the seas to project an image on the cliff-face beneath the collapsed fort of Dún Aonghusa – which sits opposite Kerry’s Dingle Peninsula – carrying a cheeky message to stoke rivalry between both camps. It read: “GALWAY: COLLAPSING KINGDOMS SINCE 1000BC”.

 

Perilously perched on a sheer sea-cliff, Dún Aonghasa defiantly faces the Atlantic Ocean.

The ancient fort is over 3,000 years old and over the centuries the Galway elements have taken their toll on the fortification, causing a significant chunk of it to collapse into the sea.

But an entirely different force of nature is plotting the collapse of another Kingdom this weekend as the Tribesmen bid to overthrow Kerry.

Galway, who began the year as 20/1 shots, are one step away from capturing Sam Maguire but remain the 11/4 outsiders to lift the cup with their opponents Kerry as short as 1/4 to add to their 37 titles.

The projection is over 60 metres tall, which is the equivalent of 33 David Cliffords, and faces directly towards Co. Kerry which can be seen from the fort on a clear day.

In order to project the image onto the cliffs, a team of experts braved the Atlantic Ocean in a boat, armed with a custom-built gobo, while two drones captured the feat from the skies.

Paddy said: “While our heads and our odds are projecting a Kerry win, this projection comes from the heart, which is always with the underdog. If Galway win, Sam will most definitely have a VIP pass to the champagne tent at the Galway Races next week.”#
