If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around?
Will Ferrell and John C Reilly would be good craic at a party I’d say it would have to be them!

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory?
You wouldn’t be a Setanta man if you didn’t say the Lantern but if not there then the Forge for a pizza.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on?
Probably our own pitch but it will not be long until it’s done up. Get your 50/50s in.

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for? Denim Rowan…joker or mouth you decide.

Which team mate has the best looking other half? I’m not walking into that trap.

Who is the worst/best trainer?
Worst has to be Richie Kee – the Creamery would shut would down without him. Best would be Ruairi Campbell gives it 100% every time he walks onto the pitch.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room?
Niall Cleary used to model in Offaly and moved to Donegal for a quiet life I heard.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus? Best would be Barney Lafferty – his phone’s big enough to watch TV on. Worst is Declan Coulter – he can’t sit still.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include?
Best is Micheal Donoghue all about the health kick. Worst is Gerard Gilmore and those McDonald’s after training.

Toughest opponent you have faced?
Marking Sean McVeigh in 2018 Championship – dangerous from anywhere on the pitch.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent?
‘It’s not about the size of the dog in the fight it’s about the size of the fight in the dog’…Barney Lafferty pre-game!

Best manager you’ve ever played under?
PJ Gallagher was the first manager that pushed me to be a confident player and always believed in me.

Best ever performance?
Probably against Burt last year in first round of championship.

One to forget? 2018 County Final against Burt.

Sporting ambition?
To play in Croke park for Setanta in a club All-Ireland final.

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be?
Happy Gilmore driving stones into the field behind the house.

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team?
No call for any changes to a team that’s unbeaten in the county for two seasons…if it’s not broken don’t fix it.
