Sean Daly (20), from Dunmanway, was close to giving up football in 2015, but after his starring role in Dohenys’ recent West Cork U21A success, the club and its supporters are delighted that he stuck with it ….


What’s the one thing you can’t live without? A good bed – I need to have a good night’s sleep.


What would I find in your fridge right now? Most likely a lot of chicken, it’s definitely my main food source.


Name one element your sport could/should take from another? The coach’s challenge from American Football would make things interesting.


What do you think about when you’re alone in your car? I’m never in the car alone. I can’t drive unfortunately.


Who has been the biggest influence on your sporting career (and why)? There is so many to be honest but it would have to be my uncle Stephen Mohan. I always looked up to him when I small.


Pick two celebrities to be your parents: Jim Carey and Aretha Franklin – they’re two class acts.


What do you think cats dream of? They probably dream of taking over the world. They’re evil. 


If you could play any other sport for one day what would it be? Would have to be American Football, looks so fun.


If you joined a circus, what would you perform? I think it would be the tight rope, it would improve the nerves.


If you could get rid of one county in Ireland what would it be and why? I have to go with Kerry on this one. I would have really enjoyed a second Munster U21 football medal if it wasn’t for them …


What would you do if you found a penguin in your freezer? Definitely name it, feed it and love it.


Before we let you go, teach us something that we don’t know: Would you believe I was going to give up football at the end of 2015. Man am I happy that I didn’t. I am enjoying it more than ever now.
