New Gaels,’ a documentary which tells the story of four GAA players who were born in other countries and embraced Gaelic Games when they moved to Ireland recently won a Royal Television Society Award.

These people all came to Ireland for varying reasons, but all now share a common love of our native sports.

They, in turn, were welcomed with open arms by the GAA community which helped in no small part to make their new country of residence feel like home.

One of those featured was Ballaghaderreen footballer and All-Ireland U21 Winner with Mayo in 2016 Shairoze Akram.

Shairoze has been speaking to Sunday Sport about being part of the documentary.
