If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around? Will Ferrell, surely it would be funny.

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory? Alt Bar, Killea.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on? Pettigo, may bring your armbands and rubber ring.

Which character in any film are you most like? Forrest Gump.

Any odd items in your kit bag? A bottle of woman’s deodorant. Don’t question it – it’s just nicer.

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for? Big Dylan McLaughlin has appeared again recently and has made me laugh any time he’s there’s so I’d have to give it him. Comes out with some quality entertainment.


Who is the worst/best trainer? Best – Kenan Diver – he has the best knees, he’s never injured or anything.
Worst – Ciaran Kennedy, never see the man until match day.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room? Without a doubt Josh kildea , has to impress the woman on the sideline.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus? Best – probably David James when he turns up, good stories.
Worst- Keenan diver, man’s about 6’7”.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include? Best – have to give myself some credit, I enjoy the chicken and rice. Worst – Would have to give it to Kenan Diver, consistent takeaway eater. There’s a few other boys that could’ve got it, few boys eating cake at half-time at the weekend.

Toughest opponent you have faced? Conor O’Donnell (Carn) – got a few tight run-arounds throughout the years.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent? There’s two  “if it’s not the long ball, if it’s not the short ball, make sure it’s the right ball” and “just pass the ball to Daniel Clarke”. I got the second one quite a bit from different managers down the years.

Best manager you’ve ever played under? Would have to say Ryan McKinley.

Best ever performance? I don’t have too many, probably Red Hugh’s in the league a few years ago.

One to forget? U21 final against Burt , gone after 10 minutes for a dodgy slide tackle.

Sporting ambition? To play at the highest standard possible with Naomh Colmcille and hopefully try get a few more trophies.

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

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team? Would have to bring David Clifford in to try catch some of them dodgy balls Stephen Gallagher kicks inside. Think he’s the only man with any hope. Nobody out.
