Bound for Rio and  the Olympics this summer with the Irish hockey team, Kinsale’s Conor Harte (27) recalls the time when his WWF moves landed his twin brother David into hospital, again...

How would your best friend describe you? Tall and sarcastic!

Who was your sporting hero when you were 10 years old? Peter Schmeichel, as I loved Manchester United.

Tell us a funny story from your childhood: My twin Dave had just recovered from a broken collarbone and I decided to perform a WWF slam on him resulting in a – yep, you guessed it – broken collarbone.

Where would you recommend for a weekend away? I’m biased but I would recommend my town Kinsale. It has a lot to offer all generations.

If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring? A small boat, my passport and an industrial fridge stocked with food and drink.

If you could go back in time, where would you go and why? I would go back to college in DCU and actually go to the 100 class parties and nights out I missed due to training and the likes.

What song best describes you? Ironic by Alanis Morissette.

What is your least favourite word? I can’t say it, unfortunately.

What’s your favourite knock-knock joke? Knock Knock. Who’s there? Iva. Iva who? Iva sore hand from knocking, open the bloody door!

What’s the world’s greatest invention? The Southern Star newspaper! (Sports Ed: great answer, Conor!)

How many cows are there in Ireland? Plenty, and don’t forget the animal ones in the fields too! 

If you know you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day? That’s very easy – with family and friends. 

A penguin walks into the room wearing a sombrero, why is he wearing it and what does he say? He’s celebrating Carnival that is being celebrated on the continent this month and says “great to see you but I must ‘fly’”, which is quite ironic!
