Diarmuid Connolly is a gem on the football field and this video shows he is not too bad on the streets either.

The ace forward limbered up for the upcoming All-Ireland final clash with Mayo by taking his skills to the streets and showing what he could do in a variety of unusual settings.

With a little help from fellow Dub Shane Carthy and New Yorker CJ Molloy Connolly uses the streets of Dublin for all sorts of training drills that you don't need anything but a ball to try.

His ability to kick an O'Neill's into a wheelie bin is impressive but it is the showpiece at the end of the video, when he attempts to kick a ball across the Liffey, that really stands out.

However, don't try this in town kids, you'll only get yourselves in big trouble.
