If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around
Probably either Jim Carrey or Will Ferrell, be good craic with them boys I’d imagine.

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory?

We normally head to the Beachcomber after the games.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on?
I hate playing on Whitestrand’s pitch, always handy for a few points though.

Which character in any film are you most like?
Alan Boal declared me his hero on Sunday, which might have been something to do with what he was drinking, but I’ll say Superman of the back of that.

Any odd items in your kit bag?


What’s your preferred brand of gear?


Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for?

Wee Paddy (Sheridan), had you been on the bus back from Cavan you’d understand why.

Which team mate has the best looking other half?
Other than myself, I’ll say Aaron McClafferty. I’ve never met her but he’s always telling us about how beautiful she is and how he thinks she is “The One!”

Who is the worst trainer?
Eamonn Sheridan has only trained with us twice in five years but it has to be Reggie (David Miller) without a doubt, that man is the Rathmullan version of Balotelli. If he can get away without doing something, he wont do it!

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room?

Its between Shea Coyle and Aaron McClafferty. Shea has to sort his perm and even produced curlers one day (big mistake) and then you’ve Aaron sorting his wee man bun thing, the less said about that the better.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus?
Alan Boal, his jokes are possibly the worst I’ve ever heard.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include?

Not sure about the best but I’d go Reggie for worst. His pre-match meal is a jambon and sausage rolls.


Toughest opponent you have faced?
Eddie Doherty from Kilmacrennan is sitting beside me and demanding a shout-out so better say him to keep him quiet.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent?

The worst was “it’s 5 of 1, half dozen of the other”, it’s safer I don’t mention who said that one.
Best quote was from a ref saying “boys, I’m not giving a penalty unless some man gets shot!”

Best manager you’ve ever played under?
I’d probably say Peter Moran at Bonagee was the best, but the most enjoyable was for Rathmullan with Dessie McLaughlin (Rocker) and his assistant/waterboy Mark Curran (Mush) in charge.

Best ever performance?
We beat Milford 3-0 over in Moyle View a few years back. Always nice to put the noisy neighbours in their place.

One to forget?
So many to choose from back in the U-18 days. We got stuffed nearly every week but think the worst was against Letterkenny Rovers, they beat us 8-0 in Rathmullan and I was in nets.

Sporting ambition?
To one day win the annual putting competition in Rathmullan. Got to the semifinal once but normally crash out in the first round.

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be?

Robbie Fowler, Steven Gerrard, or Zidane if I got a bit adventurous.

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team?

I’d sign Kevin McCarry and Phillip Hegarty back, I feel bad for them having to play for Whitestrand.
