Diarmuid Connolly’s wheelie bin trick shot and kick across the Liffey are damn impressive

Conan Doherty

Well, we know he’s a good player.

Like him, don’t like him, don’t really care enough about him, nobody can deny that Diarmuid Connolly has a bit of talent.

Okay, he’s got too much talent.

The St. Vincent’s man has been starring again for the Dubs as they bid for back-to-back All-Irelands to become just the second team since Cork back in 1990 to do so.

They’re well trained, they’re hungry, and they have ability coming out of their ears so there’s nothing stopping them from going and doing it.

Diarmuid Connolly is on another level though. The man doesn’t sweat – he just drips of talent. And in Peil Star’s latest street football production, the Dubliner has been showing off some of his effortless class around the streets of the capital city.

Whether it’s kicking the ball across the Liffey.

Or placing it deliciously into a wheelie bin – even closing the lid on it too.

Diarmuid Connolly can do what he likes with a size five.

He’ll feature on episode two of Peil Star (which comes out on Wednesday, September 7) and will be showing off the skills and drills of Gaelic Football around Dublin.
