DUBLIN’S ALL-IRELAND-winning goalkeeper Stephen Cluxton, who kicked the winning point in last Sunday’s All-Ireland final, has turned down the opportunity to cash in on his success.
According to Larissa Nolan in the Irish Sun (print edition), the goalkeeper has rejected in the region of €30,000, telling interested parties that he will only make himself available to do charity work.
PR guru and ex-Dublin player Mick O’Keefe said that Cluxton was “probably the most marketable star in the sport now,” adding that “the fact he is so private only makes him more wanted”.
However, O’Keefe indicated that there was little hope of the player changing his mind:
“He just has no interest in media attention and is very uncomfortable with it.”
Meanwhile, earlier today an RTÉ spokesperson confirmed to TheScore.ie that the Dublin team will appear on the Late Late Show tomorrow night.
Cluxton will appear on the show, along with the rest of the Dublin team.
However the star will not be one of the main speakers, with the interview set to focus on Brogan brothers, Bryan Cullen and Pat Gilroy.
The interview will take place during the first half of the programme.
