The sporting career of Neil ‘Corny’ O Donoghue reads like a movie script. A native of Clondalkin, a superb underage Gaelic footballer with Round Towers Clondalkin, an outstanding soccer talent with Shamrock Rovers and finally a star placekicker in the NFL with teams such as the Buffalo Bills, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the St Louis Cardinals. Corny’s amazing story has been captured by Lochlainn Harte from Newstalk in a super new Podcast. Round Tower GAA Club is privileged to host the exclusive launch of the Podcast, with Corny in attendance, on Wednesday Dec 6th in their clubrooms on Convent Road.
