If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around?
Conor McGregor seems like the man to get a party going

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory?
Start in Flynn’s and you wouldn’t know where you’d end up after a few pints.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on?
There’s a good few pitches about hard to say one really but Keadue Rovers on a windy day is brutal.

Any odd items in your kit bag? Strictly football gear

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for? Has to be Paddy Cannon overall funny man


Which team mate has the best looking other half? Couldn’t pick one – they’re all punching

Who is the worst/best trainer? I can’t have much say here myself, but I know Mark Harley’s the worst – always has been!

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room? Ciaran McFadden likes a good look in the mirror. He has to keep the beard under control now

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus?
Dean Gallagher – you always get a wee story out of him. Chris Cannon’s the worst waffles on.

John Quigg up at Derry great training and style of play.

One to forget? Missing a penalty in the Under 12 semi finals against Dungloe, the lads are still upset

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be?
It was Ryan Giggs for me legend
