“At the time, I was selling 12 cars a week, so I was on good money. I’d rock into the pub after work with nice clothes, a fancy car outside, loads of money. They loved to see me coming. I wasn’t able to drink pints by that stage. I’d be drinking eight vodkas for every small mixer bottle of coke. I’d go through three bottles of coke. That’s 24 vodkas, every night.”

“I’d do whatever I could to stay drinking, things I’m not proud of. I robbed. I stole. I sold jackets off my back. I sold watches, rings, medals. I don’t have my All-Ireland hurling medal,” Considine stated in the video.
