Today's brilliant clash in Croke Park captured the attention of every town in Ireland - and a bus 4,000 miles away in Chicago.

The Kingdom are on track to win back-to-back All Irelands after their four-point win over Tyrone in a cracking game in Croke Park that was witnessed on a global scale. This time it was not down to Sky Sports, however.

A picture of GAA players in Chicago, on their way to a match, was published by Balls.ie. It shows players immersed in the action via their mobile phone devices.

God bless technology.
