Michael Darragh MacAuley made his debut for Super League side Eanna against UCD Marian on Thursday night. The Dublin footballer's side were defeated 84-79.
MacAuley took a bang to his head during the game, courtesy of his own teammate, meaning he had to don a quite large, and thick, bandage for much of the game.
The five-time All-Ireland winner has played basketball for many years but last night was his first time playing at Super League level.
