Who would you say has the harder job, goalkeeper, backs, midfields or forwards?

Forwards, because you’re expected to score with almost every posession and first to be taken off if there’s a problem

What was your most memorable game?

The National Collegiate Hurling Final in Gaelic Park, New York in 2014. My parents were there and it was my Father’s first time back there in 30 years. It was our college’s first year to have a hurling team and it was an experience of a lifetime after a lot of hard work and bingo nights. I wish I had have known about “find the joker” back then.

Honours To-date:     With Cuala – Senior Championship, Senior League and a Junior A Championship. I have more clubs than Tiger Woods and all that….

If you were stranded on a deserted island, who would you least like to have there with you?         Mattie Kenny. He’d be on to me the whole time.

What piece of advice would you give to young Cuala players?

Practice shooting off both sides as often as possible and the ability to hand pass with either hand.
