How would your best friend describe you? Approachable, understanding and a good listener.


Who was your sporting hero when you were 10 years old?

My dad, I remember him winning an intermediate bowling tournament in Churchtown South – that was in 1992, I was nine.


Tell us a funny story from your childhood: I spent a lot of summers on my cousin’s farm. My godfather told me to stand in a gap and stop the cows. I ran away … I still get reminded of it.


Where would you recommend for a weekend away? Kilkenny is always a nice spot.


If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring? Matches, a hammock and a knife, then I’m staying.


If you could go back in time, where would you go and why? I’d probably go back to 1964 to see the famous score in Dublin Hill between Mick Barry and Danny McParland, two of the greats of the game.


What song best describes you? Titanium by David Guetta.


What is your least favourite word? Random.


What’s your favourite knock-knock joke? Why did the chicken cross the road? To hunt somebody down. Knock knock. Who’s there? The chicken.


What’s the world’s greatest invention? The lightbulb.


If you know you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?

I’d wake up early. I have a lot of living to do and not much time to do it.


A penguin walks into the room wearing a sombrero, why is he wearing it and what does he say? ‘Cork were unlucky today, lads’
