Speaking about his time spent playing GAA, Paul told GQ that although he wasn’t the most skilled player he still certainly gave it his best shot,
“I was definitely not the most skilled,” he tells me. “I was good at getting in the way of people, annoying people, throwing my body around. I was quite diligent. I trained and I worked really hard because I didn’t have the skill set that other people possessed.”
