Our man in London, lining out for Tir Conail Gaels despite his advancing years. Better known as ‘Pretty Boy’ (Ruairi Dundas says he takes this as a compliment so here it is), Niall has played a key role in many a good Harps performance. Who can forget his last gasp JFL Final winner against Roslea in 2003? He also has a SFL1 Winners medal from 2002 and a host of Underage titles.
