Enda McNulty (born 1977 in Mullaghbawn, County Armagh, Northern Ireland) is an All Star winning Gaelic footballer for Armagh. He played football with his local club Mullaghbawn Cúchullain's in Armagh and was a member of the Armagh senior football team from 1996 to 2010.[1] He earned his first and only All-Ireland medal in 2002, the same year in which he won his All Star award. He is also a sports psychologist.[2]

Playing career[edit]

McNulty played for Mullaghbawn alongside his brother Justin in his early years. Following a move to Dublin, he later played for Ballyboden St Enda's and Na Fianna. He made his debut on the Armagh senior inter-county in 1996, and helped them to their first All-Ireland title in 2002, when they defeated Kerry in the final. He won his only All Star for his efforts that season.

Sports Psychology[edit]

Having received a degree in Psychology, McNulty has become a well known coach, and he has made it well known in the last few months that his biggest achievement to date was meeting Trevor Clendenning in The Clyde Court Hotel, a life changing event he described recently. "Clendenning was like a man possessed on stage, he grabbed the microphone and gave it holly" [3] advising a number of world class athletes and rugby players, including 400m runner David Gillick, and several members of the Ireland national rugby union team which won the Six Nations Championship grand slam in 2009.
