Niall McNamee is a lot of things. He is a brother and a son. He is Offaly football’s Boy Wonder turned Totem. He is a fiancé and, by proxy, a wedding planner.

He is a trained butcher and he’s been a mortgage broker. He’s an English scholar from his time studying Arts in UCD. Professionally his orbit has collided with Conor McGregor.
