Ryan Connors on the ball for Dungloe

Name: Ryan Connors

Age: 19


Occupation: Student/waiter

Team: Dungloe

If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around?
Charlie Sheen and I’d have to take Avicii for Conor Greene. He hasn’t been the same since.

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory?
Hasn’t been too many celebrations this season but usually the Corner Bar.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on?
Apart from our own it would probably have to be Na Rossa.

Any odd items in your kit bag? The odd sliotar and maybe a mouldy banana.

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for? Ciaran Sharkey. Can’t take him seriously at all.


Which team mate has the best looking other half? Kevin McGoo is fairly punching but I’d have to say Doalty.

Who is the worst/best trainer?
I’d probably be down about the worst along with Jason McBride. Best would have to be Christy Greene, some engine.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room?
Has to be David McCarron.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus?
We usually take cars. Best would probably be Gerard Pat for the Elton John CD and the odd stop at a wake on the way to a game. There’s a few boys who could have your heart in your mouth on the road.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include?
Gavin Ward or Darren Curran keep it fairly clean. Worst would probably be myself. I’m liable for a Chinese or two a week.

Toughest opponent you have faced?
Ciaran McGinley. Couldn’t get near him.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent?
Every senior player in Dungloe GAA – “Lads we need to put the shoulder to the wheel.”

Best manager you’ve ever played under?
Probably Owen Bonner and Joe Neely.

Best ever performance? Against St Eunan’s in the U16 Championship final

One to forget?
Milford away last year. Nothing went right

Sporting ambition? Win a county championship with the Under 21s.

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

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team? Troy Deeney would be in, he’d do damage about the middle. Don’t think I could ship anyone out.
