If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around? Dan Bilzerian looks like he can throw a party and maybe Justin Bieber for a few songs.

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory? Usually stop in The Corkscrew bar in Doochary then head over to McCreadys in Leitir!

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on? Robert Emmett’s pitch, tough ground.

Which character in any film are you most like? Not sure on this one. Had to ask the group chat and got Alan from hangover back.. no comment.

Any odd items in your kit bag? None that I can think of!

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for? Ryan McGonagle was always good for a joke.


Which team mate has the best looking other half? I better not start any rows in the camp.

Who is the worst/best trainer? Best trainer – Daniel Martin Melly. Worst – Jason Hanlon enjoys a sleep in too often.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room? Paddy Boyle, always makes sure he’s looking his best for the women!

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus? Best and worst definitely goes to Oisin Caulfield. Great craic on the way home after a victory, can’t get home quick enough after a loss.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include? Best- Matthew Smith. Worst – I’ll hold the hand up to that one. Too many cups of tea.

Toughest opponent you have faced? Jordan Watters, Naomh Ultan, Fine footballer.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent? “Play with aggression, or don’t play at all” – Patrick Caulfield.

Best manager you’ve ever played under? Really enjoyed the season under Cormac McHugh and Joe Gallagher!

Best ever performance? Moville away in the championship last season. We had a poor first half but thankfully came good in the second.

One to forget? Championship semi final vs Letterkenny Gaels in Glenties last season. Left it behind us that day.

Sporting ambition? Win the Junior A championship with the boys this year!

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be?
Either Michael Murphy or Colm McFadden.

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team? Couldn’t get rid of anyone but I’d hand the blank cheque to Conor Bonner.
