How would your best friend describe you? Cheeky (yet fabulous at times).


Who was your sporting hero when you were 10 years old? Kevin Santry – he was the best goalkeeper to set foot in Cork. 


Tell us a funny story from your childhood: When I was younger, my siblings convinced me I was adopted from Brazil and I’m still struggling with an identity crisis.


Where would you recommend for a weekend away? Valencia – Gandia Shore, baby! 


If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring? A football, my nana (as my personal chef) and a piano.


If you could go back in time, where would you go and why? The European Championships in Ootmarsum, Holland with my teammates just last May. It was an Irish takeover! 


What song best describes you? Notorious BIG’s Mo’ money mo’ problems. 


What is your least favourite word? Photophosphorylation (sorry, Miss Jennings). 


What is your favourite knock-knock joke? Knock knock. Who’s there? King tut. King tut who? King tut-key fried chicken! 


What is the worlds greatest invention? Bitcoin, of course! I have to say that for my brothers.


If you know you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day? Tough one. I’d have to say robbing a bank. I love a challenge. 


A penguin walks into a room wearing a sombrero, why is he wearing it and what does he say? He has just finished his vacation and is looking for directions to another party.
