If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around? Ronaldinho, Mike Tyson and Michael Jackson.

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory? McCafferty’s.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on? Fintown’s old pitch.

Which character in any film are you most like? Will Ferrell in the Other Guys.

Any odd items in your kit bag? Nothing at the minute.

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for? Joe Shankey.


Which team mate has the best looking other half? Nobody has brought their other half to a game yet!

Who is the worst/best trainer? Worst: John Molloy. Best: Myself.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus? Paddy Molloy, can never seem to get his hair right.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include? Wouldn’t have a clue.

Toughest opponent you have faced? Sean Cleary was the best player I played against last year, great on the ball and dangerous any time he was close to goal.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent? After I missed yet another chance one of the lads said take your points and the goals will come. Not too relevant for football.

Best manager you’ve ever played under? Had Pat Ward for the most of my underage football so I will go with him.

Best ever performance? For Fintown probably the game against Milford last year.

One to forget? Relegation Play-off last year.

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team? Happy with the team, especially when GAA season is finished we have a strong team. Wouldn’t say no to Messi if he was interested though.
