How would your best friend describe you? Caring, talkative, loud and annoying. 


Who was your sporting hero when you were ten years old? Sonia O’Sullivan and Tom Kenny.


Tell us a funny story from your childhood: Between my sleep-walking habits and talking like Walter Mitty, my family have too many stories about me, but my family didn’t know whether to believe half the things I was saying because they may not actually have happened – no matter how convinced I was of it! Now I’m just dramatic, but at least I can tell the difference between reality and a dream.


Where would you recommend for a weekend away? Nice, such a lovely place.


If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring? Tanora, my dog and Barney’s Magic Bag.


If you could go back in time, where would you go and why? Before camera phones were invented – we got away with way more back then!


What song best describes you? Titanium by David Guetta or Count on Me by Bruno Mars.


What is your least favourite word? No. 


What’s your favourite knock-knock joke? Knock knock. Who’s there? Isabelle. Isabelle who? Isabelle working or can I stop knocking.


What’s the world’s greatest invention? Planes, I love travelling.


How many cows are there in Ireland? Not enough, you can’t have enough shhhteak and milk.


If you know you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day? Have a massive party with all my friends and family somewhere sunny. Sky dive, swim with dolphins conquer my fears and anything else that I could feel an adrenaline rush with. I would end the night with lots of jokes, music, dancing and fireworks. 


A penguin walks into the room wearing a sombrero, why is he wearing it and what does he say? If I ever see a penguin wearing a sombrero, I’ll know it’s time for a siesta.
