Mags features in the GAA documentary Páirc Life and talks about life on the playing field and trying to recover from injury.

“Logically, it’s getting my body right. My heart is saying to just get back on the field so I have to try and control those two emotions.

“People think it’s just a game but when you’re in that zone, you’re in that environment, you’re part of a religion. When you’re part of a religion, you get up every day and you worship that religion."

 If you’re in the need of some inspirational words, look no further than this – absolutely brilliant stuff.


Páirc Life kicks off on RTÉ 2 at 9pm on Tuesday night.
