By Amy Donohoe

A TikTok shot at Croke Park shows a typical Irish dad's classic behaviour as he anxiously dealt with his family on match day.

A hilarious #footballdad video uploaded by @niamh4speed has received over 200,000 views.

Niamh captured “Dad Mode” becoming activated in Croker as their family went to the All-Ireland semi final together.

And with the final upon us, we can only image the same routine occurred in the Tyrone household today.

The video said: “Making ham roll lunches for everyone. Leaving three hours before the match.”

It then showed him: “Leading the troops to Croker from the parked car miles away.”

The stressed looking Match Dad also had an issue with his family holding their own tickets as he “guarded them with his life”.

The TikTok continued: “Buying the match programme to take notes throughout the game."

He was also spotted taking the Tyrone team photo on his phone, despite professional photographers on the pitch.

It then showed him on the “edge of his seat with anticipation”.

He then had a “halftime discussion with the boys. Tactic talking”.

Niamh then captured the: “Proud dad moment watching his team win."

And go tobann, the clip finally showed Match Dad: “Running ahead of everyone leading the crowds across the roads.”
