AFL star Colin O'Riordan returned to his GAA roots last evening when he lined out for Killea in their Mid-Tipperary JHC final against Thurles Sarsfields.
The Sydney Swans man is home from Australia for their off-season, but his presence couldn't save Killea from a one-point defeat, 2-14 to 1-18.
O'Riordan signed for the Swans two years ago after winning the U21 Footballer of the Year award. He is also a talented hurler and was called up to the Tipp senior squad by then manager Eamonn O'Shea in 2014.
