People are getting behind this Mayo fan's plea for an All-Ireland ticket after she went all out for the cause

10 hours to get this very appropriate hairstyle.

ANTICIPATION IS BUILDING across the country ahead of this Sunday’s All-Ireland Football final – but the buzz is all the greater in Mayo since it’s been so long since they’ve tasted success.

Mayo superfan Kany Kazadi is just one fan on the hunt for a precious ticket.

And she’s proved her credentials with this amazing and elaborate Mayo hairstyle – as she revealed on Twitter last night

The green and red.

Kany, who’s lived in Castlebar for the last 12 years, tells that the extensions took 10 hours to braid into her hair this week – a special effort for the final:

I’ve only missed three matches this year. I’ve been up to Croker four times – twice for the games with Roscommon and again for the two with Kerry. Wouldn’t like to miss the final.

The brilliantly colourful Mayo hairstyle is becoming Kany’s signature look in September:

I only do the hair if we get to the final – I did it for last year’s final and now this year’s. It’s a tradition now each time we reach the final I will do something with my hair.

This was last year’s equally wonderful effort

She explains that she bought these hair extensions in the Afro-Caribbean shop in Castlebar and that her friend Esther helped apply them – from 5pm until 3am one night this week

Since Kany shared a collage of her new style on Twitter last night, the support to get her to Croke Park on Sunday has been unstoppable

Hundreds of retweets later, and there’s a search party on the lookout

While momentum is building on social media, there are only four days left

She’s willing to pay face value and if the will of the people had anything to do with it she’d have a ticket in her hands right now

Kany is hopeful on the ticket front, but the match is at the forefront of her mind:

This is our year.

Good luck with the search <3
