One DirectionShauna is totally dedicated to playing with Naomh Conaill in Glenties.So the only real choice she had was if she would wear her jersey inside or outside of her shorts when she lined out for her team.Shauna said “I was a bit disappointed at first when I realised they were both on the same night. But then I asked myself how many times do I get to play in a final with all my friends.“I’m sure One Direction will be playing plenty of other concerts again. There’s only One Direction I’ll be going tomorrow and that’s to Letterkenny to play Termon.” Shauna joked that perhaps Niall and his bandmates might hear of her plight and get her a ticket for another show!Shaun’s mum Maureen said the decision to choose football over her favourite pop band was entirely hers.Shauna and her team-mates.Naomh Conaill manager Sean Connaughton said he knew how big a fan Shauna is of the world’s biggest boyband so he was shocked by her decision.“I couldn’t believe it when I heard she had given up her ticket to One Direction.“All girls at this age have so many other things going on, like Irish dancing, soccer and basketball – and then of course there are always concerts. “You always have one or two players missing. We will have a couple still missing because they are away on breaks with their families.“But for Shauna to give up the chance to see her favourite band so she can play for her club tells you a lot about her. She’s totally dedicated.”SHAUNA IS ONLY GOING IN ‘ONE DIRECTION’ – TO HER GAELIC FOOTBALL FINAL! was last modified: October 16th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalGlentiesOne DirectionShauna Boylelast_img read more
