"Running a sports shop is something that I always had in the back of my mind, so when this opportunity presented itself, I couldnít let it pass," the GAA star said.
"I asked Neil Gallagher to come on board as a director of the company, as Iíve known him for many years and heís the first person I thought of when the opportunity arose. While itís good to be up and running, our primary focus for the moment is the All Ireland semi-final, so weíre concentrating all of our energy and attention on that." The shop will open its doors for the first time this Friday, August 15, at 10am.
