Coronas frontman Danny O’Reilly inspires London GAA side to glory

Published 03/09/2014 | 11:35

There was at least one Dubliner smiling last Sunday after singer Danny O'Reilly collected silverware with his GAA club in London.

While the Dublin footballers saw their All-Ireland ambitions fall at the hands of Jim McGuinness' Donegal, a former minor star scored 1-02 for North London Shamrocks as they defeated West London-based St Brendan’s 3-12 to 0-09 points in Ruislip.

Named at right-half forward, O'Reilly displayed the scoring power that Dublin manager Jim Gavin was crying out for at Croke Park as the Shamrocks moved to the senior ranks for their first championship trophy in the club’s 10-year history.

The Coronas frontman helped the North London GAA side to a first intermediate championship title in their 10-year history, with his fellow bandmates cheering on from the sidelines.

O'Reilly joined the club last season and they have got a player with a fine pedigree. The singer played minor for Dublin in 2003 when they reached an All-Ireland Final and senior level football with his local club Templeogue Synge Street.

The singer's post-match celebrations however may have be tempered somewhat by Donegal's defeat of the reigning champions at GAA headquarters, but it was a satisfying day for the sharp-shooter.
