Irish snowboard sensation


From our snowboard forum, we have learned about a US born, Irish citizen, Seamus O’Connor, who is starting to cause a stirr on the snowboarding world. He’s currently 13, and aiming to go to the Winter Olympics in 2014, to represent Ireland. Seamus’s grandparents were born in Ireland, and his father grew up in England, but has spend the last 30 years in the US, where Seamus was born. Last year his father was successful with his application for Seamus to be allowed to represent Ireland from the SAI (Snowsports Association of Ireland www.iasisnowsports.ie). Seamus already has some major sponsors behind him like Oakley & Nike, and he can snowboard. Some have even called Seamus, the next Shaun White {source}. Have a look at the video below for some evidence.
