How would your best friend describe you? Gullible, kind, dedicated, chilled and a bit uncontactable at times.


Who was your sporting hero when you were 10 years old? Sean Óg Ó hÁilpin and Alan O’Connor.


Tell us a funny story from your childhood: I had a favourite blue baby doll called ‘Baby’ that I would bring everywhere with me but once I forgot it going to my uncle’s wedding in America so my dad had to bring ‘Baby’ over with him as his only carry-on. I also dressed him up in a white dress for my godmother’s wedding.


Where would you recommend for a weekend away? 

Recently a few friends and myself went on a road trip to Clare and we had a great time. There is so much to see and do.


If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring? Football or a hurley, peanut butter and some matches.


If you could go back in time, where would you go and why? I would love to go back in time to have a kick around with my grandpa Seano and ask him for a few tips.


What song best describes you? Apparently it’s So What by Pink. I took a quiz ...


What is your least favourite word? Wake up.


What’s your favourite knock-knock joke? Knock knock. Who’s there? You. You who? Wow, you are really excited about this knock knock joke!


What’s the world’s greatest invention? The airplane, I love being able to visit family that live abroad.


If you know you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day? Have a huge party with family and friends, with all my favourite foods and drinks.


A penguin walks into the room wearing a sombrero, why is he wearing it and what does he say? It doesn’t matter what he says, I just found a talking penguin – I’m rich!
