Shaun Burke is celebrating an astonishing fourth championship winner’s medal in four different countries, following Tir Chonaill Gaels’ victory in Sunday’s the Irish World SFC Final Replay.
Shaun, who comes from Glenwilly in Co Donegal, didn’t realise his peculiar feat until he was told about it after Sunday’s game at McGovern Park against Fulham Irish.
Shaun’s uncle, Paddy, is president of Tir Chonaill Gaels.
A first half substitute, Shaun helped TCG to a first London senior title in three years, and set up Sunday’s Connacht Club SFC clash with Roscommon’s Clann na nGael at Dr Hyde Park.
Shaun’s Four Championship Winner’s Medals:
2003 USA Intermediate – Parnells, Chicago
2011 Western Australia Senior – St Finbarrs, Perth
2016 Donegal Senior – Glenswilly
2018 London Senior – Tir Chonaill Gaels
