If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around?
Alex Ferguson/Roy Keane, Noel Gallagher and Kevin Bridges for entertainment.

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory?
Usually would be Patsy’s, Molly’s or Roses.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on?
We played a minor game in a pitch in Malin one night, our corner back chased a ball and disappeared off the pitch, he couldn’t stop going down the hill. Dungloe too.

Which character in any film are you most like?
Couple of people said Phil on Modern family so I dunno if that’s meant as compliment or what.

Any odd items in your kit bag?
There’s a small packet of what I’m assuming is Gartan clay in one of the pockets, unless Michaela McCollum was tampering at my bag.

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for?
A stranger actually asked a group of us one night were we friends at all, but Toye probably; and Daniel McLaughlin would be a quiet assassin. They would have been handy decorating my Focus a few times.

Which teammate has the best looking other half?
One of Cannon’s Thai brides he picked up there on his travels.

Who is the worst trainer? Mark ‘bicep burner’ Anthony and Black probably, don’t believe in the warm ups, running or cool downs.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room? Big Brian.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus?
Mostly travel by car, Witherow would be brutal on directions. Sat nav to get to Glenfin kinda job.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include?
I would be up there myself, and maybe Michael Cannon, we’re fond of the cashew nuts and chia seeds! Bean (Brendan Rodden) for the worst, Jesus that man can make some obscure combinations for meals, he made pork chops with flavoured noodles, rice and spuds one night there with beans and onions. Knows every number on the Chinese menu too.

Toughest opponent you have faced?
Most of them are these days, Michael Langan a torture to mark at training, one step to the other side of the field.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent?
Eddie’s good for the one liners, “like a women with a straw ass” is up there.

Best ever performance? Mind scoring seven points in a minor championship game against Gweedore, still looking for them boots!

One to forget? Ha, we need another slot to chat about them. Bundoran in the relegation play-off two years ago stands out recently though, bambi on ice job.

Sporting ambition?
Get over the line in the Senior championship.

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be? Oisin McConville or Tomas O’Se.

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team?
Another sandwich maker, specifically for Black, so we can get fed after training.
