NOW THAT is what you call tears of joy.
A young Mayo fan was surprised with the ultimate gift by his uncle this week-- something just as precious and even more elusive than gold dust.
In a video being widely circulated on social media, Mayo boy Cullen sits on the couch-- clad in his Mayo jersey, of course-- as his uncle hands him an envelope without telling him what's in it.
The family are clearly aware of the gift that lies inside, and are eagerly awaiting Cullen's reaction-- and it certainly doesn't disappoint.
Unfolding the piece of paper-- which is actually a ticket declaring he will be able to see Mayo take on Tyrone for the Sam Maguire cup in Croke Park tomorrow-- Cullen at first seems shocked into silence.
Then, almost immediately, the enormity of the situation hits him... and he bursts into tears.
As any GAA fan will tell you, spilling happy-- or sad-- tears over a match is not something that is exclusive to children; many a grown man has shed a tear at the final whistle, and many of those men have been from Mayo.
It has been 70 long years since Mayo last claimed the Sam Maguire cup, despite making it to nail-biting finals dozens of times over the decades-- here's hoping Cullen will again be crying tears of joy this Saturday.
