Name: Ryan Brennan

Occupation: Student

Team: Dungloe


If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around? Hard to decide just one so I’ll go with Maradona and Daniel Bessie. It would be a dangerous duo if they got going.

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

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on? Apart from our own MacCumhail Park, Ballybofey. Wild hard place to go to, never really had any luck their at all.

Which character in any film are you most like? Probably Father Jack out of Father Ted, both of us don’t really have a clue what’s going on half the time to say the least.

Any odd items in your kit bag? Robert Wherley’s Head and Shoulders Shampoo.

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for? Jason McBride always has an answer.

Who is the worst/best trainer? Best: Mark Curran. Worst: Darren Curran never really turns up for training, usually hiding in Belfast.


Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room? Manny Brennan hands down.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus? Best: Conor Diver always guaranteed to stop in a McDonald’s afterwards.Worst: Karl Magee if he scores you’ll never hear the end of it.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include? Best: Matthew Ward consists of biscuits and Rookies chip butties. Worst: Christy Greene (vegetarian).

Toughest opponent you have faced? Probably John Bell Donegal Town, never know what he’s going to do.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent? ‘Stop this lateral s*** and just kick the high ball in dude, it’s a simple game’ was a rare one.

Best manager you’ve ever played under? Dessie Gallagher.

Best ever performance? Can barely remember my last game so I couldn’t think of one now.

One to forget? Got sent off in 20 seconds in a county final years back, wasn’t my best moment.

Sporting ambition? Get promoted to Division 1 and go further in the Senior championship

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be? Luis Suarez and Matthew Ward.

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team? No one out. Probably get the two Greene brothers home for Oz full time and Noel McBride says he’ll do one more year so I’m happy with that.
