Wheelie bins and house kicks: Ulster stars test their skills in 'street football'

You don’t need grass to harness your skills.

IT’S NOT USUAL for burgeoning Gaelic footballers to be mastering their craft against graffiti-stained walls in a rundown industrial estate, but that is exactly what happens in a newly-released video by Peil Star.

Ulster football stars Ryan McHugh (Donegal), Kieran Hughes (Monaghan), Richie Donnelly (Tyrone) and Niall McKeever (Antrim) all feature in the video titled The Titanic Session which was filmed in Belfast earlier this year.

In the video, the four players swap the pitch for the streets to show that you don’t need grass to harness your skills, by demonstrating some of the following drills including:

The Wheelie Bin Kick
