About this deal

It was tough at fifteen to have to learn to fend for yourself, especially when you never had to before. Over the following few days, the trail was noticeable: clothes, a clock, some cutlery, had all been removed from the house.

An account of the life of an amateur footballer whose life spiralled out of control due to a severe gambling addiction which lead him into making a very explicit hardcore gay porn movie despite being heterosexual. It’s an animal workout, but it is more tactical and technical than hammering the shite out of one another. Quite raw in many places, Out of Control details the corner back's issues with gambling addiction among other things. If you focus on life, and on living life well, just think of all the possibilities out there,' Mickey said.The banter and craic on the trip has largely been replaced by men sitting in isolation hunched over i-Pads or wearing giant ear phones. Cathal McCarron: 'I want to get across how destructive addiction actually is and what it has done to my life. It was a few hours of editing and stopping and I said 'I can't do this anymore' but it was, 'look, you don't get paid unless you do this. When he went through that ordeal in London - an ordeal that spanned hours - he came out and spotted a Ladbrokes on the corner. The last thing I am is gay, but I'll take those comments above vile, vitriolic, homophobic and personal abuse any day of the week.

Everyone knew the real story, but they were too embarrassed for me, too uncomfortable with my warped sense of denial to challenge me on it.

I took classes, started doing rolling matches with Da Silva and some of his top fighters in the cage. I needed a back-up plan so I concocted a new, and false, address for my mother and got the correspondence rerouted there.

More recently, in July of this year, the Director of Public Prosecution decided not to prosecute McCarron after it emerged that he had met a 15-year-old girl on Tinder. You might not think it now, but if you put your head down and put the work into yourself, you will get better.

At seventeen, you can get trapped in the fog of alcohol exploration, but gambling always dictated the journey I was undertaking. He said he would "give anything to see her now" and hopes some day he will be able to rekindle their relationship.

I understand I can change my preference through my account settings or unsubscribe directly from any marketing communications at any time. They showed me a lot of support at the time when I hit rock bottom and I have to say they were fantastic, the support they give me. It does bring up memories of Holly (his daughter from an earlier relationship, whom he is estranged from) and she is my daughter out there, too.It's character defects that I had from childhood I suppose and I found gambling as a form of an escape. The illness took such a grip on McCarron that he was forced to leave the country but the addiction led him down an even darker path and into a world of total depravity where he was willing to do anything for money. The 28-year-old was questioned by gardaí and a file was passed to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). The words McCarron might be better off seeking solace come from another Northern Ireland players' recent autobiography, Paul McVeigh's 'The Stupid Footballer Is Dead'.
