PAUL Galvin's decision to hang up his Kerry boots may break the hearts of sports lovers – but it paves the way for him to give more time to his interest in fashion and music. His 68,000 Twitter followers know only too well how much @pgal10 loves clothes.

Paul had plans to launch his own range under the name Galvinise, the same title as the RTE documentary which followed the Finuge man around for a year. However, there was a legal issue over the name and so far, Galvinise sporting gear has yet to materialise.

If I was a betting woman, I'd put cash on Galvin developing a fashion range, either in collaboration with an established brand or store, or a small bespoke, carefully edited one that shouts his rebellious take on how the modern man wants to dress.
