Paul plays with Nemo Rangers and studied at CIT. He has won a raft of honours, including captaining Cork to Munster U21 titles in 2005 and 2006, in addition to four County SFC medals with his club, a Corn Uí Mhuirí title and a Sigerson Cup victory with his college. He made his Senior debut in the 2008 Munster Final against Kerry, and first played football in Nemo Rangers street leagues many moons ago. He would like to see players allowed to pick the ball straight off the ground, and his favourite sport other than football is soccer. His best football memory outside of playing is Nemo's 2003 All-Ireland Club victory. The person he would most like to meet is Cheryl Cole!
