A routine bonding session away with Donegal Footballers led to Paddy McConigley losing his eye, a freak accident while paint ball shooting. In this interview Sportstalk.ie doesn’t dwell on the past nor does Paddy himself as he describes his accident and the path he found himself on thereafter.
Yes this was just the beginning of the story for Paddy as he moved from a big ball mad county Donegal to a county king of the small ball Kilkenny. We talk sporting culture shocks, changing of career, family and Kilkenny Football.
A truly fabulous interview and part two gives us an insight into the minds of the Kilkenny County board and their attitude towards the development of football in the county.
