This Harps Exile now lives in Canterbury, Kent, but will not be forgotten for a long time for his commitment on and off the field, plus some particularly bone-crunching tackles at the height of his powers. One of our most popular players, he keeps in touch and watches our Facebook posts constantly. Niall had his father in law over at the Roslea match lately, but had to tell him that he was disappointed with the lack of hits on display!
