World Rugby published this video item, entitled “From Love Island to the Olympic Games! | Greg O’Shea Jersey Tales” – below is their description.
Greg O’Shea is a former winner of the smash hit reality tv show Love Island, but before he grew in fame on the ITV show, he spent his life dedicating himself to his rugby dreams. From growing up wanting to play for Munster, to realising that dream, and then onto the Olympic Games with Ireland 7s, his successful career has seen a lot of weird and wonderful turns.
Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.
Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.
The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.
A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
ITV (LSE: ITV) is a broadcasting company which was formed from a merger of Granada plc and Carlton Communications in 2004. It holds Channel 3 broadcasting licences in England, Wales, Southern Scotland and the Isle of Man.
Love Island is a reality TV show in the United Kingdom in which contestants are sent away to an island, and participate in a series of tasks. During the show, they keep swapping partners until they find “the love of their life” with the winner being decided by a public vote. The show is broadcast in the UK by ITV on ITV1 and ITV2.
