Inside The Luxurious World Of A GAA Hurler’s Mansion


This is the first glimpse of the lavish new home of one of Ireland’s top sporting figures. The Kilkenny hurler, who cannot be named for home safety reasons, has given WWN permission to showcase his luxurious new property, purchased from the proceeds of his 12 year career with the GAA.

The 32-year-old half-back’s home was photographed today in Kilkenny city by this reporter, and it sure doesn’t disappoint.

The stylish apartment, which would look more at home in Beverley Hills than the Springhill, was just completed, after builders started work in December 2013.

As well as its two bedrooms, the stunning fawn building, which is only a short drive from the Kilkenny ground Nolan Park, boasts an impressive three windows and professionally maintained gardens.

A 10x12ft indoor kitchen area comes with 3 presses and its very own cooking area, complete with a sink, extractor fan and eating facilities.


Architect plans for the home had also revealed that should the hurling star need some time on his own after a game, he could chill out on one of three mattresses available throughout the house.


Or he could relax on this luxurious 19th century cast iron toilet while retweeting the latest GAA facts and figures from his team sponsored smart phone.


Staff at the apartment were also due to be catered for in an accommodation wing and should the hurler have people to visit, they could sleep over on a retractable arm chair. Why is the TV covered you may ask? Well, due to Brian Cody’s strict training regime, all manor of visual stimulants are prohibited for three weeks before an important game.



And finally, this is were the magic happens. This particular player is no stranger to style. Just look at that sensual architecture. Minimalistic and pure, this bedroom is sure to heat up on those long cold winter nights after training.


Parking is also not an issue in this city centre retreat, with seven communal spaces put aside, each €34 per year through the local council. This also features various wheelie bins and its very own parking pay-station for visitors.
