Cork and Doheny footballer Melissa Duggan (21), from Ballyboy, Dunmanway, reveals that eating six chocolate bars a week is good for your heart! We like that advice


What's the one thing you can't live without? Chocolate.

What would I find in your fridge right now? Loads of chocolate.

Name one element your sport could/should take from another? If you could take more steps with the ball; I'm dodgy at soloing.

What do you think about when you're alone in your car? Nothing really, I just listen to the music on the radio and try not to crash. 

Who has been the biggest influence on your sporting career (and why)? Briege Corkery – because every time I've seen her play she's been brilliant.

Pick two celebrities to be your parents: David and Victoria Beckham.

What do you think cats dream of? Different ways to attack people. I hate cats, they‘re evil.

If you could play any other sport for one day what would it be? Tennis. 

If you joined a circus, what would you perform? Trapeze.

If you could get rid of one county in Ireland what would it be and why? Donegal ... because it takes too long to get there. 

What would you do if you found a penguin in your freezer? Keep it as a pet. I love penguins.

Before we let you go, teach us something that we don't know: Studies have shown that eating six chocolate bars a week is good for your heart.
