Diarmuid Connolly shows off his full array of skills in ‘Liffey Kick’ challenge

Connolly is joined by his Dublin teammate Shane Carthy and New York’s CJ Molloy in completing passes over a row of houses, nailing a kick into a wheelie bin and a Liffey Kick challenge.

You can see how Connolly’s effort went three minutes and 35 seconds into the video...

If he’s that accurate on Sunday week, it could well be a fourth All-Ireland medal for the St Vincent's clubman.
