Kilmacabea U21 captain Diarmuid O’Callaghan (20), from Maulatrahane in Leap chats about beer pong, the ‘Cash Me Outside’ girl and Kevin Whooley’s one-liners


What’s the one thing you can’t live without? Kevin Whooley’s one liners.


What would I find in your fridge right now? Just the standard essentials. 


Name one element your sport could/should take from another? A proper fixture list.


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

All sorts of thoughts, usually swaying all over the road looking in over the ditch.


Who has been the biggest influence on your sporting career (and why)? Noel McCarthy because his ringtone would make anyone look forward to training …


Pick two celebrities to be your parents: Tommy Tiernan and the ‘Cash Me Outside’ girl. (Sports Ed – We had to google her to see who she was!)


What do you think cats dream of? What kind of a question is that! The only ones who know the answer to that are cats.


If you could play any other sport for one day what would it be? Beer pong. Practice makes perfect.


If you joined a circus, what would you perform? I’d throw a few knives or something.


If you could get rid of one county in Ireland what would it be and why? Dublin. I couldn’t be listening to them ….


What would you do if you found a penguin in your freezer? I’d sellotape him to the top of the tractor.


Before we let you go, teach us something that we don’t know: Rumour has it Noel McCarthy beat Tiernan Kerrisk in a sprint from Sheehan’s to the Harbour Bar in Leap last Sunday night ….
