If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around?
I’d imagine Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville would be good craic on a night out.

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory?
Haven’t had many but we use to go to Pete’s at the end of the year.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on?
Without a doubt Drumbar.

Which character in any film are you most like?
I’ve been told I look like Kristoff from Frozen more than once.

Any odd items in your kit bag?
Nothing out of the ordinary.

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for?
Ronan McDevitt usually shows up in the clothes from the night before so I’ll give it to him.

Which team mate has the best looking other half?
Liam McFadden.

Who is the worst/best trainer?
The best has to be Ciaran McHugh. Then Eoin Ferry always finds an injury before the sprints starts.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room?
Domhnall McBride is always looking at himself.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus?
The worst is Jonathan Gallagher. He’s always chewing on a packet of crisps and talking about United.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include?
Ciaran McHugh is probably the healthiest. Then Joey Gillespie is always getting takeaways.

Toughest opponent you have faced?
Steven McFadden gave me a few shameful times before he got into his banter years.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent?
Kevin Friel told us to keep giving Micheal Roarty the ball at half-time once. Not sure why he thought that was a good idea.

Best manager you’ve ever played under?
Paddy Walsh

Best ever performance?
Can’t think of one.

One to forget?
We bottled a 2-0 lead in an All Ireland Semi-Final with the school. Still can’t believe it.

Sporting ambition?
Get the club back to the Premier Division.

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

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team?
Wouldn’t put anyone out of the team. Wouldn’t mind having Gary Whoriskey or Jambo back in the team.
