If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around?
Lee Evans and Will Ferrell seem like good craic. Maybe throw in Mike Tyson for security.

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory?
Usually the Noble Bar or Roddy’s, then the Warehouse for a few beats.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on?
Probably Dungloe or Drumboe

Which character in any film are you most like? Maybe Brennan from Stepbrothers. Don’t nobody touch my drum set.

Any odd items in your kit bag?
Holy medal/mass card.

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for? Ultan Doherty and Brick are a good combination after a few drinks


Which team mate has the best looking other half?
Couldn’t say – too many of those lads are punching to be honest.

Who is the worst/best trainer?
Best: Eunan Doherty, Eoin Waide, and Ultan Doherty love a good run. Worst is Seamus Ellis – that man loves to cry.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room?
Seamus Ellis loves his hair gel.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus?
Best: Leon Thompson is always chilled out. Worst: Eunan Doherty is always looking for relationship advice.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include?
Best diet: Eoin Waide hates to see chips near the championship. Seamus Ellis is partial to an old salad leaf during the summer as well. Worst is probably myself – partial to a kebab and plenty of sweets

Toughest opponent you have faced? Michael Murphy/Paddy McBrearty. Declan Bonner’s phone is a tough one too.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent?
‘Are you fit?’ or ‘hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard’.

Best manager you’ve ever played under?
Hard to say, they’ve all been good.

Best ever performance? It’s not often that I get on the scoresheet so I’ll go for ‘Eunan’s last year down in Glenties

One to forget? I always look back on the 2012 County Final as one we should have won.

Sporting ambition? Stay injury-free and win a few more county championships along the way

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be?
John Gildea, Paddy Campbell and Jim McGuinness come to mind.

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team? Diarmuid Connolly and Frank McGlynn in. Seamus Ellis can hit the road. I’ll have peace then.
