Connaire Harrison was on the receiving end of a few verbals during Sunday’s London IFC final at Ruislip.

The Down attacker interrupted his own stag do in Ibiza to jet in and help his adopted club, Neasden Gaels, complete a league and championship double by virtue of their 2-13 to 0-13 victory over St Josephs.

“Ach, I got a bit of a heavy touch in the face, busted my nose and my lip,” he told The Irish News. “There were a few verbals before that as well - ‘f**k away off back to Ibiza’, that sort of thing. But sure, I knew anyway something was probably going to happen after all the publicity around it.

“I’ve come so far with the rest of the boys that I didn’t want to let them down."
