SKY Sports presenter Rachel Wyse says Sunday's All-Ireland final will be like nothing UK audiences have ever seen before.

The 'Irish Independent' columnist (pictured) revealed she was delighted with how Sky's inaugural season of GAA coverage had gone so far.

"On Saturday night for the Kerry v Mayo game, in the UK, Twitter went into meltdown. I think it was second trending only behind the Chelsea v Everton game. People like Joey Barton tweeting about it as well have shown there is real interest."

She added: "It's great the GAA is attracting a new audience. I think they will get a huge surprise when they tune in for the All-Ireland finals for the first time in their lives."
