On The Record

There were a few contract offers from the League of Ireland, full-time contracts because there were a lot of teams full-time at the time, and we said no.
The first thing I did was my Leaving Cert.I ended up playing the U21 championship for Portlaoise because the lads were getting onto me about that, because they hadn’t won one in ages. I played a bit with the Laois U21s during my Leaving Cert year.
Then I did the Leaving Cert and John Mulligan, the Portlaoise manager, said to me, ‘Just give us one year, one year.’ He said you can go back to the soccer after that, and here I am seven years later, still going.” - Paul Cahillane on how we went from Glasgow Celtic to a career in Gaelic football.
