How would your best friend describe you? Focused, determined and a genuine guy. 

Who was your sporting hero when you were 10 years old? Roy Keane.

Tell us a funny story from your childhood: When I was young you wouldn’t believe the number of windows I broke playing soccer and hurling at home. 

Where would you recommend for a weekend away? Killarney. I went with my family last summer. Loved it. 

If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring? A football, my phone and my dog. 

If you could go back in time, where would you go and why? I’d like to go back to when I was 15 years old in Roy Keane’s office in Sunderland. With Roy being my sporting hero I froze and to this day I can’t remember anything he said.  

What song best describes you?  If the Banks of My Own Lovely Lee comes on the radio, my dad phones me and turns up the volume for me to hear it because I love home. 

What is your least favourite word? Failure.  

What’s your favourite knock-knock joke? I used this one in my school days. Knock, knock. Who’s there? Canoe. Canoe who? Canoe help me with my homework? 

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

If you know you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day? I’d spend it with my girlfriend and family. 

A penguin walks into the room wearing a sombrero, why is he wearing it and what does he say? I’m going to Mexico. Do you fancy coming?
