Down attacker Paul McComiskey says he is committed
to helping Down in this year’s NFL and
championship although he may travel to Brisbane
McComiskey is being tailed
by AFL clubs but he insists his education is
the priority and, in the short term, he’ll
be around to help his native county.
"Ross (Carr) knows as
well as I do that Down is my only focus,"
said McComiskey. "The Aussie Rules is a
long, long way away, and I haven’t really
thought much about it.
"The only thing I have
thought about is trying to get on the Down team
and improve myself as a Gaelic player.
"My education is first
and foremost above everything, even sport. I’d
have to get that first. It’s a major thing.
You wouldn’t want to throw it away."
