Swilly Park on a bad day.

Has to be Kevin O’Donnell, I won’t say what his party trick is but it’s the best I’ve seen.

Which team mate has the best looking other half?
Ciaran Daffan is punching big time.

Easy one, Davitt Walsh.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus?
Jonathan Coady, shoulders are too big takes up both seats.

Brendan Barr, not the biggest lad but he can play.


Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent? ‘If we score and don’t concede we beat them’.

Best ever performance?
Probably for Harps U19’s against Shelbourne. Scored four in a 6-2 win.

One to forget? Lost the Cup final last year to two crackers in the last minute and got a very questionable red card so probably that game.

To keep playing as long as I can.

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