A prolific schoolboy player, he starred on a Terenure College Senior Cup-winning side which helped earned him a place in the Irish Academy (2001-2004).

He enjoyed spells with both Clontarf FC and Terenure College RFC, where he lifted the Division Two title, in the AIB League before moving to Italy last year.

McAllister has been the backs/kicking coach for his alma mater Terenure College since 2001 at Under-10 through to Senior Cup level.
