How would your best friend describe you? Fond of the craic and someone who enjoys the good things in life.


Who was your sporting hero when you were 10 years old? It’s definitely Paul Scholes (former Manchester United midfielder), he’s better than Pirlo and Gerrard, although I have to say that AdrianFlahavan is a serious striker of a ball too …


Tell us a funny story from your childhood: Finghin’s first day as an altar boy – that poor bell got an awful banging!


Where would you recommend for a weekend away? It’s hard not to like Ocean City where I am for now for the summer. Besides there, Prague is another good spot.


If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring? Is it past the watershed yet? I’d go for a phone, Mila Kunis and a bed – what more do you want?


If you could go back in time, where would you go and why? I’d go to the 2013 All-Ireland senior hurling final and hope that Clare’s Domhnall O’Donovan didn’t get that late point! Cork were within seconds of winning the All-Ireland, then he scored to equalise, and we all know what happened in the replay. So close …


What song best describes you? Wonderwall by Oasis.


What is your least favourite word? I’m going to go for two: last call.


What’s your favourite knock-knock joke? 

Knock, knock? Who’s there? Needle. Needle who? Needle little money for the sesh.


How many cows are there in Ireland? Only three – the Daly brothers are only cows that I know! Sorry lads!


If you know you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?You’re probably seeing a theme starting to emerge here, but I’d be in Foley’s Bar (in Enniskeane) singing Sean South.


A penguin walks into the room wearing a sombrero, why is he wearing it and what does he say? He’s wearing it because he’s a Dooley, and he says ‘come on lads, we’ll head to the Tav!’
