If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around?
Conor McGregor looks like he’d throw a good party.

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory?
We’d got to the Harbour Bar and then move it onto the Cope.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on?

Which character in any film are you most like?
Lloyd from Dumb and Dumber.

Any odd items in your kit bag?
Lots of hair gel.

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for? David McGuinness doesn’t take himself too serious.


Which team mate has the best looking other half?
Jon Ban Gallagher has a new woman every day of the week so I’ll go with last Sunday’s one!

Who is the worst/best trainer?
Ryan Carr always puts in a good shift.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room? Brendan McGuire is always in front of it, before and after games.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus? Shaun Gorrell – he’s a brute of a man!

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include?
Brendan McGuire is always putting up posts about his smoothies but I have it on good authority that he’s a loyalty card for McDonalds in Letterkenny.

Toughest opponent you have faced?
Cory Gallagher of Keadue last year was very good.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent?
None in particular, but Noel Dorrian usually comes out with an odd classic or two most weeks along the sideline in Emerald.

Best manager you’ve ever played under? John Conwell.

Best ever performance? U16s Champions League against Dungloe. We were 4-2 down after first leg and came back to win on away goals, 5-5, at home.

One to forget? It was a Gaelic one. Losing the Under 16 county final after extra-time to St. Eunan’s.

Sporting ambition?
To win the Donegal League Premier and to win a senior county title.

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

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team?
I’d take Jayo (Jason Noctor) back and I’d get rid of Evan Broderick so he can fully focus on the basketball.
