If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around?
Avicii or Guetta for the tunes anyway! Adam Sandler always seems like he would be up for a laugh.

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory?
I wouldn’t be the biggest one for going out but if I do it’s usually a pub crawl from top of town and ending up in Steppers or McCafferty’s, wherever the craic is.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on?
Our own hill wouldn’t be too far away but hopefully this new one will be a bit better.

Which character in any film are you most like? A few have said Paul Blart: Mall Cop as I’m quite clumsy and have injured myself quite a lot.

Any odd items in your kit bag?
A Bratog Bride from Shane the Hat and a double of everything else.

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for?
All the older lads love a good meme or gif in the WhatsApp like Lawlor Cormac and the boss man Ronan.

Which team mate has the best looking other half? There’s a few punching but wouldn’t want to name names.

Who is the worst/best trainer?
Best: Cormac and Damo, Men mad for the running. Worst: probably myself and Doyler when we’re together nothing but messing and laughing

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room?
Wouldn’t say any of us as we all come out sweaty messes at the end of the games from the helmets.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus?
We usually take cars and the craic is usually good no matter who you travel with, tunes pumping. After a loss the journeys are usually a lot more depressing though.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include? Best is again probably Cormac and Damo. Worst is probably Sean O’Donnell. Think that man’s blood is made of monster.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent?
There is definitely a few but can’t think of one in particular.

Best manager you’ve ever played under? Ronan Mulligan and Cormac Hartnett.

Best ever performance?
Only joined this year but had a good game against Setanta in the semi final.

One to forget?
The final against Carndonagh. The first 15 minutes was a shambles and I couldn’t catch the cold that day

Sporting ambition? Win a county title and be promoted up in to the senior league.

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be?
Henry Shefflin

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team?
Don’t think I would change anything we have a nice wee group of lads there now.
