Former Bandon AFC starlet Kate O’Donovan (17), who recently made her league debut for Cork City Women’s FC, has a good reason why she needs to go back to Old Trafford ...

How would your best friend describe you? Crazy, funny, sporty and probably anti-social because I can’t go out much because of trainings and matches! 

Who was your sporting hero when you were 10 years old? I’m picking three – Ryan Giggs, Cristiano Ronaldo and Katie Taylor. 

Tell us a funny story from your childhood: When I was three I was addicted to butter and my mom caught me sitting on the kitchen table, eating the dish of butter with my hands!

Where would you recommend for a weekend away? Fota Island Resort in Cork.

If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring? A pocket knife, a hunting dog and a guru, who would give me three wishes – the first one would definitely be to get me off the island. 

If you could go back in time, where would you go and why? Back to Old Trafford with my family because this time I would have my glasses so I would be able to see the match properly!  

What song best describes you? Adele’s Hello parody (Hella Cravings) because I love those foods but I hardly ever get to eat them anymore because of my trainings and matches. 

What is your least favourite word? Dishwasher – because every time I hear it, it means I have to empty it!

What’s your favourite knock-knock joke? Will you remember me in a year? Yes. Will you remember me in a month? Yes. Will you remember me in a week? Yes. Knock knock. Who’s there? See, you forgot me already! 

What’s the world’s greatest invention? The phone. 

How many cows are there in Ireland? A handy few, especially here in West Cork.  

If you know you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day? I would eat as much chocolate as I could because I know I wouldn’t have training tomorrow.

A penguin walks into the room wearing a sombrero, why is he wearing it and what does he say? He is wearing the sombrero because it’s hot (for a change) and then he says ‘let’s get this party started!’
