Daniel (Dano) Dineen (19), from Cill na Martra, is known for his Gaelic football exploits but he’s also pretty handy in FIFA on the PlayStation with Liverpool. Let’s hope he plays better than the Reds last Sunday …


What’s the one thing you can’t live without? FIFA on the PlayStation, I’d be lost without it. 


What would I find in your fridge right now? Pre-made dinners as my mother isn’t the best cook – but God bless her, she tries her best.


Name one element your sport could/should take from another? It’d be great if we could have a TMO (television match official) in GAA like they have in rugby, that might help stop off-the-ball fouling.


What do you think about when you’re alone in your car? How we destroy the old fellas at club training (like Noel O’Leary, the poor lad can’t keep up!).


Who has been the biggest influence on your sporting career (and why)? Michael ‘Fatboy’ Desmond. He gave me some great advice like saying ‘sticks and stones may break your bone but names will never hurt us.’


Pick two celebrities to be your parents: Zac Efron and my woman from the block, Jennifer Lopez.


What do you think cats dream of? Cats don’t have much to dream about because their lives are already purrrr-fect.


If you could play any other sport for one day what would it be? Ladies volleyball … just because it would be good craic and all.


If you joined a circus, what would you perform? I’d train the elephants because I’d have great mass in them animals.


If you could get rid of one county in Ireland what would it be and why? That’s an easy one, Dublin, so then Cork would be the capital.


What would you do if you found a penguin in your freezer? If it’s in there, I’d probably chance eating it, to be honest.


Before we let you go, teach us something that we don’t know: I’m not half bad at snooker.
