Charles Kenneally (24), from Crookstown, a salesman  with O’Donovan Engineering, talks comb-overs, chasing tail and Sinead O’Connor. It’s just a normal week, really ….


What’s the one thing you can’t live without? Clifford’s Bar and Bistro in Crookstown. 


What would I find in your fridge right now? A few hang sangwiches to fill the belly for lunch tomorrow. 


Name one element your sport could/should take from another? Reduce football from 45 minutes per half to 30 minutes.


What do you think about when you’re alone in your car? 

Did I lock the front door? 


Who has been the biggest influence on your sporting career (and why)? Michael Deasy of Crookstown United – his scoring skills on a Saturday night never hinder his scoring abilities on a Sunday morning.


Pick two celebrities to be your parents: Conor McGregor and Sinead O’Connor.


What do you think cats dream of? Chasing tail … as in mouse tail. 


If you could play any other sport for one day what would it be? American football. 


If you joined a circus, what would you perform? I’d be the fire breather. 


If you could get rid of one county in Ireland what would it be and why? I’d rather not get of rid of any, we’re small enough as it is. 


What would you do if you found a penguin in your freezer? Ask him if he knows any good jokes.


Before we let you go, teach us something that we don’t know: Colm (Gorey) Crowley’s comb-over is not a fashion statement, it’s a necessity to hide his receding hair line.
