Nun Shows Off Football Skills In Viral Video, The Internet Is Impressed

A video in which a nun and a police officer in Ireland show off their football skills is viral

Here's something you definitely don't see everyday! A video of a nun and a police officer showing off their football skills is viral. The 23-second video shows the nun and the 'grada' - as police officers in Ireland are known - pass a football back and forth as impressed onlookers cheer and applaud their efforts. It has been viewed over a million times on Facebook in just four days.

The video shows a police officer identified as Garda O'Connell playing "keepy uppy" with an unnamed nun, dressed in a habit and wearing sneakers, in the city of Limerick in Ireland. "Keepy uppy" is a game in which players try and keep a football off the ground without using their hands or arms.

Ireland's police force shared the short clip on its official Facebook page on June 1.

The video has been viewed over a million times since being posted on Facebook. It has been shared over 13,000 times and collected well over 11,000 reactions.

"We're not sure who won this time, a rematch will have to be scheduled," the Irish police add.
