He’s the Mary Immaculate College of Education Fitzgibbon Cup team coach, but we’re hoping that Kilbrittain’s Jamie Wall (24) hasn’t damaged our sales in Westmeath this week...


What’s the one thing you can’t live without? The handsfree kit in my car, literally.


What would I find in your fridge right now? Turkey rashers and an empty water filter (one housemate hasn’t quite grasped the concept yet).


Name one element your sport could/should take from another? Penalty shoot-out – it would eliminate replays, another boost to the fixtures issue!


What do you think about when you’re alone in your car? I’ve been too busy trying to impersonate Frankie Valli from Jersey Boys of late to think of anything. It’s best to be alone for that too.


Who has been the biggest influence on your sporting career (and why)? Kieran O’Driscoll (RIP), for countless and continuing reasons.


Pick two celebrities to be your parents: Larry and 

Geraldine from The Ricky Whitelaw Show.


What do you think cats dream of? When they take a little cat snooze?Do they dream of mauling zebras, or Halle Berry in her catwoman suit?


If you could play any other sport for one day what would it be? Cycling. I’ve got a good doctor so that’s half the battle.


If you joined a circus, what would you perform? I’d do a disappearing act.


If you could get rid of one county in Ireland what would it be and why? Westmeath. You just drive through it, it isn’t even a real county, it’s just the west of another one. Imagine if we had a county of Westcork? Well, then again ….


What would you do if you found a penguin in your freezer? I’d probably p-p-p-pick it up ….


Before we let you go, teach us something that we don’t know: A wise Irish man spoke of St Paul who told Timothy, ‘Be no longer a drinker of water, but use a little wine for your stomach’s sake and your frequent infirmities.’
