Any odd items in your kit bag?

Who’s the biggest joker in the teams you play for?
‘Brick’ (Dermot Molloy) and Eoin Waide always have a good story or two.

Which teammate has the best looking other half? Kevin McGettigan, if he’d just pick one…

Worst trainer: Ciaran Brennan is never off the physio bed or the sun bed for that matter!

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room?
Joe Kennedy.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus? ‘Brick’ as he always has a few sweets on him. Worst would be Eoin ‘Legend’ Boyle as he has shoulders like a Belgian blue!

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include?

The worst diet would probably be myself. I would eat my fair share of cakes and biscuits. Seamus Ellis is the best becasue he always trying out the newest diet plan. He loves the bird seeds.

Toughest opponent you have faced?

Hughie Gallagher. 1v1’s are always tough with him especially if there’s money on!

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent?

“Go out and make three halves of him!”. Can’t give up who said it.

Best manager you’ve ever played under?
Martin Regan.

Best ever performance?
My best would have been for Donegal under 21s against Cavan in 2015.

One to forget?

Under 21 Ulster Final 2015.

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

Colm Cooper and Ciaran McDonald.

If there was a transfer market who’d be in and who’d be out of the team?

No one out and would probably take Diarmuid Connolly if given the chance.
