David McCarthy Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10 on how funny you are? I have a feeling a lot of the Urhan lads will disagree but I would give myself a 7. I think my team-mates would only give me about a 4 I’d say, if I’m lucky.

Highlight of your sporting career? It has to be captaining Urhan to the Beara junior football title recently. It was a big result for us having lost it the last two years. We really wanted to win it.

Most dialled number on your phone and why? Probably my girlfriend Genevieve and I better spell that right or I’ll be in trouble…

What’s your karaoke song? I have to say I don’t have one. Actually, I have never sung a karaoke song in my life. That’s (Urhan team-mate) Conor Lowney’s area of expertise and he’s the best man for starting off a sing-song.

Best-ever holiday? I went to the Wimbledon tennis tournament in England a few months ago. It was brilliant. It’s unbelievable to see the tournament live and how it is organised.

If you won the lotto what would buy first? I’d buy a new house in New York City.

What’s your favourite word? I don’t know, Maybe, ‘believe’ or something like that?

If you could change any part of you what would it be? I wouldn’t mind being a few more inches taller. I’m only 5’ 11” and my brother Martin is nearly 6’ 2” so I wouldn’t mind being taller than him for a change.

Your most treasured item of clothing? My Helly Hanson jacket. I don’t know why exactly except that it is my new jacket.

Favourite cartoon? The Simpsons.

If I was an animal I would be a ...dog. It is man’s best friend after all.

What question would you like to have been asked in this interview? We always have a bit of banter in training to see who can kick a 45 off the ground. So the question I’d like to be asked is: David, can you kick a 45 off the ground? The answer would be yes, of course I can.
