Mayo's Aidan O'Shea is one of the best exponents of high fielding in gaelic football... but the oval ball is proving to be a more difficult prospect.

Last weekend, American Football star Roberto Wallace captained O'Shea's club Breaffy to victory in a challenge game with near-neighbours Parke.

O'Shea, who appears to be training in Norte Dame, the home of the Fighting Irish, has travelled to America for AIB's 'The Toughest Trade' documentary which airs in March.

AIB have released a clip of O'Shea in action in training running a route and trying to execute a catch, but it doesn't go according to plan.
