Name: Rory Mulligan

Age: 21


Team: Sean MacCumhaills

If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around?
Ricky Bobby or Alan from the Hangover would have to be top of the list.

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory?
Heeney’s was always the go to before Covid. I’d say you’ll find a few lying round Jackson’s when all opens again.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on?
Has to be Dungloe.

Which character in any film are you most like?
Chazz Michael Michaels from Blades of Glory was a hero of mine.

Any odd items in your kit bag?
Keep a bottle of Coors Light in there for when Aaron Kelly gets nervous before games.

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for?
Conor Griffin for sure.

Which team mate has the best looking other half?
Chris Gallagher has a few other halves I’m led to believe.

Who is the worst/best trainer?
Worst is Ronan McMenamin sick on the pitch every week. Best would be Paddy Hannigan inspirational speeches galore.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room?
Marty ‘Bull’ Gallagher is known for it.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus?
Best is Oisin Farrah – stays nice and quiet. Worst would be Luke Gavigan always trying to tempt me to go to the pub with him after.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include?
Chad McSorley would have a strict diet. Any time you’re in the house there’s a steak on the pan, Aaron Kelly is the worst he keeps the Navenny Grill going on his own.

Toughest opponent you have faced?
Dougie ‘Dicey’ McDaid is a sticky operator.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent?
Shane McNulty saying ‘to the endline lads’ was the last thing you wanted to hear.

Best manager you’ve ever played under?
Mr McCrea and Mr Acheson were some duo with St Columba’s


Best ever performance? Winning the Ulster Championship with Finn Valley College was one of the better days.

One to forget? County Minor League final – beat well and a black card to top it off.

Sporting ambition?
Win a championship with MacCumhaills.

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be?
Karl Lacey or John lynch.

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team?
Jamie Keegan and Darren O’Leary have to go, they’re always falling out. Be nice if we could re-sign Fintan Griffin.
